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 core product is providing essential functions to teach and simulate robot operations. In conjunction with the virtual teach pendant, it is usable for virtual commissioning and validation of robot programs.

The arcweld add-on is providing true parametric CAD-to-path strategies for creating arcweld operations.

Thanks to this partnership, Kawasaki has become more competitive by having its own OLP software.

In a nutshell:

  • Teach and simulate robot operations
  • Virtual commissioning and validation of robot programs
