Offline programming system for 3D contours with robots

FASTCURVE is intelligent and high-performance offline programming software for 3D contours in a robotic environment. Several technologies are supported; from laser, water-jet and ultrasound cutting, sealing and roll hemming to laser-beam hardening and laser deposition welding. With FASTCURVE, offline programming for 3D contours is executed quickly and easily within CATIA/DELMIA V5 while taking technology and robot movements into account.


FASTCURVE is seamlessly integrated into the powerful CATIA/DELMIA V5 infrastructure. Several automatic functions, integrated programming, comprehensive CAD/CAM ability as well as the simulation of the entire robot cell create a working environment fully attuned to the requirements of the user and guarantee collision-free tool paths.

The various complex processes of 3D contour processing can be realized with FASTCURVE quickly, efficiently and in high quality.
