ABB selects Algoryx to provide physics simulation in RobotStudio

The latest release of ABB RobotStudio, the world's most used offline programming tool for robotics, now comes with support for advanced realtime physics simulation. ABB has selected AGX Dynamics from Algoryx to power simulations of multibody systems and hose dynamics.

Offline programming is the best way to maximize return on investment for robot systems. ABB's simulation and offline programming software, RobotStudio, allows robot programming to be done on a PC in the office without shutting down production.

ABB RobotStudio provides the tools to increase the profitability robot systems by letting the user perform tasks such as training, programming, and optimization without disturbing production.
This provides numerous benefits including:

- Risk reduction
- Quicker start-up
- Shorter change-over
- Increased productivity.

With the inclusion of physics simulations, the automation engineer can now also model dynamics of the surrounding robot cell and the material that the robots works with. Physics adds accuracy to the offline programming model and also simplifies the modeling since animations are automatically handled by the physics. Physics based dress pack simulations gives the user information if the dress pack is too long or too short or follows a trajectory that can cause damages.
