Good Things Come in Pairs!

Welcome to OCTOPUZ 2.0 the latest version of OCTOPUZ' offline robotic programming and simulation software!

OCTOPUZ 2.0, the latest version of OCTOPUZ' robotic programming and simulation software has been released! Ideal for any sized company, OCTOPUZ 2.0, offers the ability to simulate then offline program and generate code for multiple robots, simultaneously, working with most robot brands in any configuration.

Our team has worked very hard to add a number of new and exciting features to the latest release such as a new interface and visuals that is more intuitive and modernized for its users. The ease with which windows can be moved and docked has been simplified. The new release also includes quick access menus for viewing, simulation, and manipulation as well as gives users the ability to quickly switch between views.Edge Following enhancements mean that instead of having to use CAM Software for simple paths users can now directly create a path statement using OCTOPUZ 2.0 as it has the ability to generate tool paths using the edges available on a component.For welding applications OCTOPUZ 2.0 enhancements save cycle time by grouping all searches together. Prior to OCTOPUZ 2.0 users would have to run multiple torch clean routines and reference one touch routine for each weld routine. Using Weld Sense, you are able to touch sense the entire weld part before starting the routine, saving users valuable time.

Out with the OLD, In with the NEW - OCTOPUZ Community and Support

Along with the launch of our new release, we have launched a new Community and Support Center for our Maintenance Customers and Partners. This new resource has multiple layers, meaning that there is some information available without the need to log in. It is meant to be a source of industry and generic company documentation. The rest of the layers? Well those are exclusively for our Maintenance Customers and Partners! If you fall into either of these categories, you will receive an email to be a part of the OCTOPUZ Community and Support Center where you will be able to create a password and then immediately access all your resources.

The OCTOPUZ Academy is your source for all OCTOPUZ Robotic Offline Programming and Simulation Software training and tutorial material. Here you'll find courses, lessons and videos on OCTOPUZ, helping you learn to use and navigate the software as efficiently as possible. The OCTOPUZ Knowledge Base is where you will find Licensing Documents, Technical Documentation, Industry News, FAQs, and Terminology. Under Downloads you will be able to find the OCTOPUZ 2.0 Installation Files. And finally, the OCTOPUZ Community houses forums where we encourage users to share industry knowledge or troubleshooting advice.

Not an OCTOPUZ customer but interested in learning more about it? Contact us to set up a demo! Are you an OCTOPUZ customer but not on maintenance? Contact our customer success manager to add maintenance to your license. Are you an OCTOPUZ maintenance customer? Visit our OCTOPUZ Community and Support Center now to start taking advantage of these new resources.

This resource is still under development so please be patient as we continue to add new materials and documents for you to use. Feel free to provide us with any feedback and comments as you navigate this new center!

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
