Tecnomatix Robcad Overview

Tecnomatix Robcad allows you to visualise and virtually confirm the practicality of your automation concepts, instead of dealing in guesswork or uncertainties. The Robcad platform helps to optimise processes and calculate cycle times.

Straightforwardly design, simulate, analyse and off-line programme multi-device robotic and automated manufacturing processes. Robcad has a powerful selection of process-specific applications, including spot welding, arc welding, laser- and water-jet cutting, drilling and riveting, and human operations.

There is an extensive library of standard robot models and robot controller configurations available within Robcad. These promote knowledge re-use and save you time.

Robcad fully integrates with major industry MCAD systems, including native data from Siemens PLM Software’s NX™ solution, and supports direct CAD interfaces or neutral formats such as JT™, IGES, DXF, STL and STEP.
