Simulation software

onDesk Simulationsoftware

Robot simulation software

The onDesk software is NACHI's proprietary robot simulation software tool that runs on laptop or desktop computers.  The onDesk simulates all critical components of the Nachi Robot Control Platform and also provides a 3D environment (Robview) for creating accurate and realistic looking at a work cell.  The onDesk software has a wide variety of uses including program creation, application setup, personnel training, problem diagnosis, and engineering purposes (Reach, collision, Cycle Time Verification).  Files created in the onDesk software can be easily imported to a robot controller for use, that makes the onDesk software to a very useful offline programming tool.











on Desk software main features

Works with Multiple Operating Systems

Operates on Windows NT ®,WindowsXP ® , & Windows 7®

Provides Operational Training Before Introducing the Robot

Teaching is performed offline using only a PC

Operational training manuals are included with the onDesk software

Up to Six Robots can be operated with One System

One onDesk software corresponds with one robot controller

For Multi unit control simulations upto six robots per controller can be operated

Conduct Accurate Cycle Time Analyses and Reach Studies

The onDesk software uses the same motion processing software as the Controller providing  accurate cycle time analysis

Accurate reach studies can be conducted to verify application feasibility

Points "Tags" can be used to quickly evaluate robot reach

Offline Teaching Provides More than Operation Programming

The onDesk software provides offline programming of Software-PLC, welding condition, interface panel design, signal setup and constant setting

•  Create or Import 3D Objects in Robview

3D objects can be imported in  IGES, STL(Stereo Lithography),VRML (Virtual Reality Modelling Language) and DXF (Drawing  Exchange Format) formats

3D "part" objects can be created from scratch using the Robview portion of the onDesk software

Multiple parts can be "glued" together to form larger assembly part files

Create Simulation Videos Automatically

Built in Video capture software allows the user to easily create videos of robot simulation in  AVI file format

3D Work cell example

MC20 machine handling

Compact and space saving installation of four machine tools serviced by MC20 robot. Robot is addiotionally installed on linear guideway to extended reach.










MR20 machine handling

Very compact machine tool seviced by MR20 (7axis) robot. Robot is placed away from main entrance area, providing this manner very easy further maintenance operations.










MC20 Ceiling mount installation

MC20 robot installed upside-down on gantry type guideway, providing this way excellent maintenance access, more compact and space saving cell design.










LP palletizing cell

Typical palettizing application using NACHI LP series robot.
