Industrial robot simulation in the cloud

With the free robot simulation of drag&bot, the planning of automation solutions for factories should become easier. CAD models of the cell and gripper can be used to estimate the feasibility, accessibility and cycle time of the application within minutes.

Drag&bot Simulation is a purely cloud-based simulation environment for industrial robots. In the web application, different robots can be combined in a 3D environment with their own CAD models of the robot cell as well as the objects for handling and specific grippers to form a complete working environment. The result is a digital twin of the robot application, which can be programmed according to the drag & drop principle. After free registration, the user will receive his access data for the simulation by e-mail. Comprehensible online tutorials are available for the first steps, so that no specific robot know-how or extensive training is required to get started. With just a few clicks, complete robot programs including special functions such as error handling can be put together from various function blocks. Own CAD environments can be easily uploaded and used in the simulation. Each program can be tested with different robot brands and models with regard to reachability and cycle time, and thus the appropriate hardware can be determined. Finished robot programs are then available for download and can then be used directly on the real robot with the production version of the software.
