Offline programming means programming a robot outside the production environment.
the production environment. Offline programming prevents production
interruptions due to programming on the robot. Simulation and offline
programming allow the comparison of different scenarios of robot
cells before defining the production cell. Errors that are typically made in
made in the online processes can be prevented in time.
Offline programming is the best way to maximize the return on investment for a
robot system and for this appropriate simulation tools are needed.
are needed. The time needed to adapt a new program can be reduced from several
weeks to a few days. This also makes the robotization
of short-time productions possible.
