Visual Components, a developer of 3D simulation software, has announced the release of Visual Components Robotics OLP. This software allows manufacturers to consolidate their technology deployments, improve robot utilization, and enhance production efficiency all through a single platform. The programming capabilities offered by Visual Components Robotics OLP are not only reliable and accurate but also ten times faster than manual processes.
The platform is compatible with the major robot and cobot brands, with support from post-processors of companies like KUKA, ABB, YASKAWA, and FANUC. This compatibility allows manufacturers to seamlessly transfer their robot programs from Visual Components Robotics OLP to physical robots on the shop floor.
The launch of Visual Components Robotics OLP comes at a time when robots are being underutilized in the manufacturing sector. Challenges such as time and labor-intensive processes, complex product mixes, and skills shortages have hindered innovation and blocked progress in digital transformation strategies.
With Visual Components Robotics OLP, manufacturers not only benefit from reduced downtime and complexity involved with robotic deployments but also gain a unified solution that enables employees to be trained across multiple disciplines. This encourages upskilling in the Industry 5.0 era and provides an opportunity to drive technical skills among the new generation entering the sector.
Mikko Urho, CEO at Visual Components, states, “Visual Components Robotics OLP makes digital production transformation possible. It’s more than just a product release; it’s a testament to our understanding of industry challenges and our commitment to addressing them head-on. We’re bridging the efficiency gaps and streamlining processes to ensure our customers always stay one step ahead.”
The launch of Visual Components Robotics OLP follows Visual Components’ acquisition of Delfoi Robotics in October 2022. Delfoi Robotics is a leading provider of offline robot programming (OLP) solutions for the manufacturing industry, and its technology has now been seamlessly integrated with Visual Components’ existing simulation solutions.
Overall, Visual Components Robotics OLP offers manufacturers a comprehensive solution to optimize their robot utilization, improve production efficiency, and address challenges in the manufacturing sector. With its fast and accurate programming capabilities, compatibility with major robot brands, and support for upskilling, Visual Components Robotics OLP is set to drive digital transformation in the industry.
