The global demand for robotics is increasing. Thanks to the intelligent software of Solid Edge, they can react quickly to the changes and demands in the market. KUKA Benelux has been using Solid Edge to develop their robotic grippers for 15 years. The simulation tool in the software ensures that they can tackle many errors in the design phase. This saves a lot of time and money. After months of in-house testing, the robot is delivered to the customer, ready to use. " We feel we have an advantage over the competition in this area as well. We are pioneers in robotics and thanks to our years of expertise and strong software, we still excel in our sector."
Not only the designers use Solid Edge but the software is also used in the workplace. In the workshop the free version is used: if you do not have a paying license, you can still use the 2D version and also the 3D viewer. STEP files can also be opened and viewed in this free version. This allows the data to be passed on easily and the workplace to get the right information at once.
ADOPT id PLM has been their loyal partner for Solid Edge since 2012. "We have progressed enormously since the cooperation with ADOPT id PLM. We get a lot of support and even with new features we always get the right support. When there are large updates of the software, we go with the whole team to training by ADOPT id PLM". Jan finds the support an important aspect. "If we are stuck at a certain moment, we call ADOPT id PLM. Usually our question is solved quickly and we can continue immediately. This saves a lot of time and it also reassures us that we can count on them."
