OCTOPUZ Inc. introduces PathPlanner suite of tools in new OCTOPUZ 3.0 release

OCTOPUZ Inc. has just released OCTOPUZ 3.0, a major software upgrade to its OCTOPUZ Offline Robot Programming software solution.

Waterloo, ON: OCTOPUZ Inc. has just released OCTOPUZ 3.0, a major software upgrade to its OCTOPUZ Offline Robot Programming software solution. OCTOPUZ 3.0 introduces the OCTOPUZ PathPlanner suite of tools, an enhanced programming experience for creating, modifying, and transforming path and search statements, which brings an entirely new level of efficiency to Offline Robot Programming.

PathPlanner Create introduces new, intuitive tools for creating path and search statements in OCTOPUZ. With multiple path and search selection methods, along with real-time path previews, integrated automatic collision avoidance, and simple configuration options, creating statements in OCTOPUZ is better than ever.

Create path statements of any type by selecting a path in the OCTOPUZ 3D environment. Integrated creation of welding paths includes support for many welding operations, such as stitching, weaving, seam tracking, and multipasses.

Two new unique ways to create search statements are introduced to OCTOPUZ. Create a 1 point, 2 point, and 3 point search by manually selecting exact tool touch locations in the 3D environment; or, automatically create a search statement based on a previously-created path statement with automatic calculations of optimal touch locations.

PathPlanner Modify tools are built for when modifications to previously created path and search statements are needed. Easily make modifications without the need to recreate statements from scratch.

PathPlanner Transform is perfect for when there is similar geometry along the physical programmed part.

The Move transform tool moves entire path and search statements from their current location in the 3D environment to an alternate location. The Copy transform tool will copy statements to as many new locations as needed. The Mirror transform tool mirrors, or flips, statements to one or more new locations.

OCTOPUZ 3.0 is now available to download for all OCTOPUZ customers with an active OCTOPUZ subscription. Or, book a demo now to receive a free preview of how OCTOPUZ 3.0 is keeping industrial robots online and in production.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
