Digitally Simulate and Validate Robot Applications with KUKA.Sim 4.0

KUKA Robotics Corp. (Shelby Township, MI) has launched KUKA.Sim 4.0, a major enhancement of its modular digital simulation software package.

Posted: September 29, 2021


KUKA.Sim 4.0 facilitates accurate planning, programming, safety configuration and more through digital twins of the automation

The software enables manufacturers to test and validate robotic installations before equipment arrives, minimize the footprint of cells with 3D visualization of safety spaces, then transfer applications with 100 percent accuracy to an actual robot controller. In addition, KUKA.Sim 4.0 can program robots offline, analyze cycle times, and expand with new functionalities through add-on modules.

An automation company, KUKA said that the new software package checks reachability and detects collisions in virtual space to ensure foolproof implementation of programs and cells, minimizing the time and costs of planning tasks as well as actual production downtime. Through a digital twin that matches the physical process, 3D simulation covers the planning process from design and verification through PLC code, eliminating bottlenecks with full consistency for advance testing and optimization.

According to KUKA, in industries from consumer goods to electronics and automotive, KUKA.Sim 4.0 makes automation planning easy with a new KUKA Robot Language (KRL) editor that includes expert and beginner onscreen views with a visual program tree that facilitates ease even without previous KRL experience.
