Offline robot programming software

Denso’s Wincaps III software lets users to program a robot on an offline computer without the robot having to be in operation. A 3D simulation feature enables layout of the automation workcell in a virtual environment. CAD drawings can be imported in standard VRML and DirectX formats, and variables can be input or changed.

Denso’s Wincaps III software lets users to program a robot on an offline computer without the robot having to be in operation. A 3D simulation feature enables layout of the automation workcell in a virtual environment. CAD drawings can be imported in standard VRML and DirectX formats, and variables can be input or changed. Users can verify reach, determine obstacle clearances, detect collisions, troubleshoot and debug programs, and determine cycle time. The software allows remote monitoring of workcell operations via real-time I/O status indicators and detailed control logs. A panel design feature allows customization of the robot controller’s teaching-pendant display. www.densorobotics.com Denso Robotics
