Kuka announces simulation software update

Kuka Robotics launched Kuka.Sim 4.0, a major enhancement of its modular digital simulation software package. The software enables manufacturers to test and validate robotic installations before equipment arrives, minimize the footprint of cells with 3-D visualization of safety spaces, then transfer applications with 100 percent accuracy to an actual robot controller. The software can program robots offline, analyze cycle times and expand with new functionalities through add-on modules. It checks reachability and detects collisions in virtual space to ensure foolproof implementation of programs and cells.
