Realtime Robotics Partners with Siemens for Industrial Robotic Workcells


Realtime Robotics, the leader in autonomous motion planning for industrial robots, today announced a strategic partnership with Siemens Digital Industries Software division.

Realtime’s technology is being seamlessly integrated into Tecnomatix® Process Simulate, simplifying robot programming and workcell coordination by automating motion programming. Manufacturers and integrators can now easily program, simulate, and validate automation, significantly simplifying the digital commissioning process.

Currently, multi-robot workcells take prohibitive amounts of calendar and scarce engineering time in the simulation phase before going to production. Once deployed, they are inflexible, requiring significant re-programming for every modification. This has made multi-robot workcells cost-prohibitive for all but the most stable high-volume manufacturing.

Siemens’ industry leading Tecnomatix® Process Simulate, coupled with the Realtime Controller and RapidPlan software, significantly simplifies the programming of automated robotic processes, reducing the time to deploy and adapt to changes, both during simulation and on the shop floor. The integrated technology eliminates the need to enter teach-points and to create and manage interference zones.

Joint customer proof of concepts show programming cycle time reductions of over 70 percent, enabling quicker, more robust deployments.
