VC - robot safety programming addon (KUKA Safe Operation, Fanuc DCS an ABB Save Move)

Hey there,

the company i work for, is looking for a software change to VC.
Until now we gone use Process Simulate VC lite with an safety programming addon.

It is the plan to create safe areas, safe tools and robots at VC.

We would prefere an addon or software that can be used to create and document the safety configuration.
If there is nothing avalible, we need to use the OEM software (KUKA.Sim, ABB Robotstudio and Fanuc Roboguide), but this should be the last option for us.

Does anyone of you know’s an addon or software, were it is possible to create the safetyfunctions and documentation?

Kind regards

VC Premium includes Kuka OLP which has the same functionality as Kuka Sim and you can create safety configurations with it for Kuka. For other brands VC doesn’t have tools or add-ons to create safety configurations.


Does VC Professional supports KUKA OLP?

No, only VC Premium supports it. There’s the product-feature matrix shown on this website:

BTW recently KUKA OLP feature was renamed to Kuka.Sim Add-on which you see on that matrix as well. This is to distinguish the feature from VC Robotics OLP which was launched this month. VC Robotics OLP is brand-agnostic offline programming toolset for different applications (arc wedling cutting, painting). Kuka.Sim Add-on is just for Kuka robots. They have some overlapping features such as createing arc welding paths. I’d say VC Robotics OLP has better path creation tools but it doesn’t have RCS controller (accurate motion execution) or KRL executor.
