Realtime Robotics, provider of collision-free autonomous motion planning for industrial robots, today announced that it has teamed with Siemens to integrate its RapidPlan software with Siemens Process Simulate, in the company’s Tecnomatix portfolio.
This integration enables Siemens customers to utilize Realtime’s robot motion planning and control software as a part of their regular workflow, without leaving Process Simulate. Customers using the integration can easily visualize, prioritize and simulate robot task plans, and validate them through virtual commissioning. Support for servo weld guns has also been added.
Realtime Robotics RapidPlan software helps manufacturers design and deploy industrial automation. The programming, deployment and control of industrial robots is automated, autonomously generating and choreographing all robot movements. Users create a digital twin simulation of their workcell and then simply point and click on robots and target points to create and visualize collision-free task plans, saving weeks to months of programming time per project.
With Realtime Robotics for Siemens Process Simulate, positions and waypoints can be updated without reprogramming and time-consuming manual tasks can be reduced with automated and collision-free interlock programming.
