A powerful simulation software
The In-House Solutions – Visual Components collaboration began, as In-House Solutions contacted Visual Components about the possibility of working together towards building more flexible solutions for robot off-line-programming.
“We had this idea for a product that could perform off-line-programming of robots as well as handle the vast array of simulations manufacturers typically need,” Edward House says.
According to him, Visual Components was an ideal candidate for the role. “We found Visual Components to be a very powerful simulation software in a competitive price range. Also, the people at VC were knowledgeable, open and progressive with their company plans.”
In-House Solutions has experienced a number of valuable benefits from using the Visual Components tools. These include being able to provide their customers extensive savings in time, especially in the field of off-line-programming, great flexibility in application development and, more importantly, many satisfied customers.
A flexible and versatile simulation platform
In-House Solutions has extensive off-line-programming expertise and what they initially were looking for was above all a platform that could be used for developing a number of different applications. “Visual Components is an extremely versatile platform,” Edward House says.
“We can visualize the entire process from start to finish rather than focusing on a single facet. The robot library available is extensive, and it includes configurations and brands that are not programmable with other software packages. The ability to use Python scripts also allows us to customize the software, so we can provide the end user with the best solution for their specific application.”
