FANUC UK has launched the latest, upgraded version of its 3D simulation software for robot motion control.
Roboguide Version 9 can be used for pre-sale concept simulations through to a full offline programming package for use on the shop floor, said the automation specialist 6 March.
The upgraded version features a “more intuitive user interface” with up-to-date virtual controllers, and a drag-and-drop function for the addition of robots and components within a work cell layout.
The software allows operators to design, test and modify robotic systems through the use of a fully-simulated, 3D CAD environment.
The simulations, which can be conducted offline, provide an operator with accurate robot motion and cycle times when designing and verifying a system. The finalised programme can then be downloaded to the robot.
Industry-specific versions of Roboguide are also available, including: ChamferingPro for deburring, HandlingPRO for material handling processes, Paintpro for paint applications, and WeldPRO for arc-welding applications.
