Focusing on simplified programming between two or more robots in a single work cell, path statements can now be transformed from one robot to any other robot in the cell. Simply select the robot on which you want your transformed statements, then select where on your part you want these statements to be created.
We designed a new Transform type called Rotate, which can quickly transform one or more original statements by creating multiple copies of these statements around an axis. Select your axis and set a rotation angle, and watch as up to 25 statement copies are created in different locations around that axis.
We've added an entirely new ribbon tab, Process, which enhances how we model and manage products, processes, and production flow in simulation environments. With Process Modeling, several modeling tasks can now be completed as visual workflows, minimizing the need for manual programming.
We've added several new features to our Create Path tool, specifically tailored for easy creation of complex cutting and machining paths. Improvements to our one-click Edge & Curve path selection method, improved path offset results on corners and closed loops, and new tool alignment methods and settings are just a small sample of what's new.
A completely new way to create path leads, tangent arc lead motions offer a way to smoothly blend into your cutting or machining path. A multitude of settings enable you to create these motions exactly as you need them, including their size, angle, extension, and rotation.
In an update to our Point Editor, you can now select multiple statement points and update them together. Set your point speed and rounding, change your tool orientation, add tool commands, and much more.
Fully integrated into our new Create Path tool, you can now easily generate (and simulate) paths for robots performing spot or tack welds, with full code creation capabilities for supported robot brands.
Added as a new method to our Create Manual Search tool, an edge search is a unique searching motion exclusive to YASKAWA robots which detects a surface and then follows it to an edge, useful for detecting butt welds, low walls, and other hard-to-find-surfaces.
Introducing an enhanced programming experience for creating, modifying, and transforming path and search statements.
Create statements through our entirely new programming experience. We've added multiple new path and search selection methods, along with real-time path previews, integrated automatic collision avoidance, and simple configuration options.
Modify statements to change your settings for previously-created paths and searches. You can make adjustments easily, without needing to entirely recreate your statements from scratch.
Transform statements to new locations for even more efficient programming. Take any of your new paths and searches and copy them to other locations along your path, perfect for when you have similar geometry along your physical programmed part.
Our new Point Editor brings an entirely redesigned point editing experience to OCTOPUZ, through a unified look that focuses on providing easy-access tools which affect specific points of a path or search statement. In addition, see the information most important to you by customizing the data displayed for each statement point.
