OCTOPUZ Inc. releases the latest version of their offline robotic programming and simulation software, OCTOPUZ 2.0.2

OCTOPUZ Inc. releases OCTOPUZ 2.0.2, the latest version of their software focused on enhancing it's best-in-class welding application used by the majority of OCTOPUZ customers.

OCTOPUZ Inc. releases the latest version of their offline robotic programming and simulation software today, June 19th, 2018.


Since the major release of OCTOPUZ 2.0 that took place earlier this year, the team has been continuously focusing their efforts into improving and enhancing the already well-received product. The improvements included in the OCTOPUZ 2.0.2 release concentrates on enhancing it's best-in-class welding application used by the majority of OCTOPUZ customers.

Through OCTOPUZ the number of clicks to create a weld is reduced from 5 to 1 by leveraging the NEW Quick Weld feature.

Another welding enhancement included in this release focuses on a welding process that is increasingly being programmed offline, spot welding. The OCTOPUZ 2.0.2 release includes features to simulate and program the spot welding process while reducing robot downtime.

The increased support for Panasonic welding included in OCTOPUZ 2.0.2 is also expected to make a big splash in the OCTOPUZ customer base and industry. OCTOPUZ supports Panasonic Touch Sense and Weave Welding for simulations and programming. Use touch sensing to account for part inconsistencies by programming Panasonic robots using OCTOPUZ Robotic Programming and Simulation Software.

In addition to these 3 main features there were additional improvements made to the OCTOPUZ Software including:

* Extended External Axis Support
* Multi-pass Welding Enhancements
* Import Tool for OCTOPUZ 1.7 Weld Paths
* Circular Welding Workflow Improvements

If you are a current OCTOPUZ customer, your OCTOPUZ license will automatically update and you will be able to employ the latest enhancements right away.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
