Visual Components makes key acquisition

Visual Components, a developer of 3D simulation software, has acquired the robotics division of Delfoi, a global pioneer in robot offline programming (OLP) software solutions. The move gives the Finnish organisation a foundation to expand globally by complementing its existing simulation tools for production systems and virtual commissioning with OLP capabilities.

OLP gives manufacturers the opportunity to program robots on the factory floor, alongside Visual Components’ existing product offering of layout design, feasibility and validation of control logics, robot programs and processes. This functionality will essentially make a one-stop-shop for the digital transformation of production systems a reality. It will also enable manufacturers to benefit from significantly reduced downtime, while simultaneously improving the accuracy of robotic programming processes.
