OCTOPUZ not only makes the complex simple, but it can also help your company save time and improve safety through Dynamic Model Simulation.
Also known as Dynamic Tooling, this OCTOPUZ feature uses simulation to show how objects can change when they’re physically pushed during an automation process. It’s ideal for anyone using compliance tooling or in situations where pushing on a part causes a change in tooling shape. By allowing the tooling to maintain the correct shape at different points, OCTOPUZ offers greater accuracy in collision detection during the simulation.
Dynamic Tooling can also measure, record and then show how far the tool has compressed, which allows the force on the part to be calculated. This can be useful, and sometimes necessary, for advanced applications. Once set up, the Dynamic Tooling feature is completely automatic.
Not commonly available in automation software, Dynamic Tooling is ideal for applications that involve grinding, sanding, buffing or polishing. Using OCTOPUZ’s Dynamic Tooling feature can lead to increased productivity since less time is spent checking for collisions. There’s also the benefit of greater safety by using simulation to check for potential collisions before creating code.
OCTOPUZ is a revolutionary software tool that combines the offline programming of robots with manufacturing process simulation. It provides a mainstream, versatile, powerful and effective solution for all of your robotic challenges. Dynamic Tooling is just one of several benefits offered by OCTOPUZ. The ability to program multiple robots, application versatility, complex kinematics systems and a versatile CAM interface make the software ideal for path-sensitive robot applications.
