DENSO Robotics Introduces New WINCAPS III Offline Programming Software

POSTED 10/22/2008

3-D Simulation Simplifies Workcell Layout; Allows Remote Monitoring of Operations

LONG BEACH, Calif. – DENSO’s new WINCAPS III offline programming software saves users valuable development time by allowing them to program a robot on an offline computer, without the robot having to be in operation.

A 3-D simulation feature conveniently enables layout of the automation workcell in a virtual environment. CAD drawings can be imported in standard VRML and DirectX formats, and variables can easily be input or changed. Users can verify reach, determine obstacle clearances, detect collisions, troubleshoot and debug programs, and determine cycle time.

“WINCAPS III is a very powerful programming and monitoring tool,” said Peter Cavallo, robotics sales manager, DENSO Sales California. “Customers have repeatedly told us how much time it saves them and how much easier it makes their jobs.”
