K-Virtual: Software tool for digital plant engineering

Kawasaki Robotics introduces new 3D simulation platform based on CENIT FASTSUITE technology

Stuttgart, July 16, 2020 – On September 1, robot maker Kawasaki Robotics (Neuss) will launch K-Virtual: A new, innovative platform for efficient plant engineering, robot simulation and offline programming. In developing the intuitive 3D simulation solution, Kawasaki relied on collaboration with CENIT and its FASTSUITE Edition 2 technology.

The 3D simulation platform K-Virtual is the latest output of the long-standing partnership between Kawasaki Robotics and CENIT. Industry robots by Kawasaki are deployed in complex manufacturing processes. To ensure maximum robot performance, the company uses the simulation-based technology of CENIT FASTSUITE Edition 2 to plan its automation solutions and manufacturing processes. The Neuss-based robot maker values the FASTSUITE software for its precise mapping and simulation of real-world production systems and plant facilities as well as its logical behavior and control features for manufacturing cells.


Robot simulation and offline programming made easy with K- Virtual


CENIT and Kawasaki Robotics plan to leverage the strategic development collaboration to offer client businesses maximum performance of Kawasaki robots within the respective automation solution – from initial installation to reprogramming and plant re-engineering.

Kurt Bengel, CEO of CENIT AG, says: “As a proven technology partner in the field of agile manufacturing technology and simulation solutions, we are proud to contribute to the success of Kawasaki Robotics and its customers.” He adds: “With the sustained expansion of our strategic partnerships and continued development of our software expertise, we are consistently implementing the enterprise targets defined in our CENIT 2025 strategy.”

Carsten Stumpf, Vice President Kawasaki Robotics Germany, says: “The performance of K-Virtual as an agile simulation platform is based on the proven FASTSUITE technology. We are certain that this lets us offer our clients an ideal tool for future-proof planning of their automation processes. In this context, we are pleased that CENIT will continue to work closely with Kawasaki Robotics as our software partner.”
