Product Description

Smart simulation software for efficient offline programming of KUKA robots: with KUKA.Sim, you can optimize the operation of your systems and robots outside the production environment – quickly and easily. More productivity, safety and competitiveness The future-oriented KUKA.Sim software brings robot applications virtually to life – before the system has even been put into operation. The robot motion sequences programmed offline are depicted in real time and analyzed and optimized with regard to their cycle times. With features such as a reachability check and collision detection, you can make sure that robot programs and work cell layouts can really be implemented. Digital simulation thus offers maximum planning reliability for your manufacturing processes at minimum cost and effort. At the same time, production downtimes are kept as short as possible. From offline programming to virtual commissioning KUKA.Sim creates a digital twin and thus an identical image of the subsequent production process. The 3D simulation covers the entire planning process: from the design of the process to the visualization of material flows and bottlenecks to the PLC code. The data are 100 percent consistent, which means that the virtual controller and the real controller work with exactly the same data. In this way, KUKA.Sim creates the basis for virtual commissioning, so that new production lines can already be tested and optimized in advance.


How Do We Make Difference?

Maximum flexibility through modular software architecture. KUKA.Sim is based on a modular software architecture – with an efficient, flexible and durable toolbox principle. The basic package can be expanded with three add-ons: for powerful modeling of an individual component library, for virtual commissioning and for simulation of welding applications. This means customers only pay for the functional expansions they actually need. If their requirements change, users can easily add further add-ons in the future. The modular system stands out for its flexibility and durability.
