FASTSUITE Offline Programming is based on a unique software architecture and concept which allows users to easily program robots and/or machine tools, making use of the process geometry, defined on the work-pieces and the available technology packages. The process geometries can be points in case of i.e. spot welding, curves in case of laser cutting or surfaces in case of processes like painting or polishing.
FASTSUITE Offline Programming selects automatically the corresponding technology package, based on the tool mounted on the robot for programming. The different technology packages will provide a GUI customized directly for the particular technology and will compute the tool path in a way that it is already optimized for a given technology, i.e. like arc welding or laser cutting and which will contain already all process specific commands for the controller.
Among many others, FASTSUITE Offline Programming does provide the following functionalities:
To optimize offline programming for specific technologies, FASTSUITE Edition 2 provides a variety of OLP add-ons.
These add-ons extends the OLP functionality, to generate offline programs for robots or machines, which are already optimized for a selected technology/application.
