Off-line robotics programming software with 3D simulation

It simplifies workcell layout, allows remote monitoring of operations.


Wincaps III robotics programming software from Denso lets users program a robot on an offline computer, without the robot having to be in operation, which saves development time. A 3D simulation feature enables layout of the automation workcell in a virtual environment, remote monitoring of workcell operations via realtime I/O status indicators and detailed control logs.

CAD drawings can be imported in standard VRML and DirectX formats, and variables can easily be input or changed. Users can verify reach, determine obstacle clearances, detect collisions, troubleshoot and debug programs, and determine cycle time. A panel design feature allows customization of the robot controller’s teaching-pendant display.
