Virtualisation of a robot cell with a real controller
Enables the control of simulated manufacturing hardware using a real controller. The simulated hardware is represented in a real-time 3D-environment which can be used for demonstrating actual system functionality, training employees, virtual commissioning and testing production operations for new parts. These activities can be done before the system even exists or after commissioning, when they can be done without disturbing the ongoing production. Since the control software used is identical to the real-world control software all master data created with the virtual system can be transferred to the real one.
