Octopuz 2.2 robot programming and simulation software includes new features and enhancements that give users an improved automatic experience, improved workflow and a wider range of support.

Octopuz 2.2 robot programming and simulation software includes new features and enhancements for improved workflow and a wider range of support. The software reduces the need for manual weld adjustments because of the addition of automatic Collision Avoidance through the Tool Axis Control, a default setting that uses an algorithm to calculate the optimal tool position along a weld path. The Merge or Split Point and Path Statements improve user control by enabling users to quickly modify several statement points together and split an imported path statement or a generated path statement to view and modify individual points.

Several feature improvements are designed to save users programming time, such as the Variable Workflow enhancement, which provides a more natural workflow experience when programming weld applications. For users with Panasonic robots, 3D Touch Sense support improves weld accuracy by enabling three-point touch sensing in the X, Y and Z directions.
