Easy programming for any brand of robot

210329_FuzzyFuzzy Logic Robotics is announcing the first release of Fuzzy Studio during Hannover Messe Industry 2021, which it claims will be a game changer for unlocking flexible robotic production. The company it addresses the problem that both industrial and collaborative robotics are too costly for truly flexible production due to the complexity of software and integration.

Fuzzy Logic Robotics argues that, today, only a few handling applications, such as pick-and-place, have been made truly accessible to non-experts and thus cost-effective for flexible production. The vast majority of robotic and cobotic applications, it says, require complex and heterogeneous software tools and brand experts.

These tools require significant training and expertise, with Fuzzy Logic Robotics saying that, as a result, more than 75% of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a robot is related to software training and services in standard mass production. In flexible production, this number can skyrocket to over 90% of the TCO and kill the potential return on investment of the robotic system.

Asserting that the solution is a single, intuitive platform for all steps, Fuzzy Logic Robotics has developed Fuzzy Studio, an easy-to-use and universal software platform which the company says reduces robotics programming costs by 10. With Fuzzy Studio any factory can automate with robotics quickly, simply and cost-effectively – even for complex applications in processing, dispensing and welding. Features include:

  • Intuitive and simple like a video game.
  • One standard interface for all brands of robots.
  • Industrial grade precision and performance for real time control of the robot.

Fuzzy Studio covers all of the steps in the integration of a robotic workcell: from pre-project, design, and commissioning to real-time production control, inline reprogramming and maintenance. It is designed to accelerate robotic uptake and usage for all stakeholders, from major manufacturers to small and medium-sized businesses, to systems integrators and even robot OEMs.

Select robots from an extensive library: Browse through a comprehensive collection of robot models from the supported brands and filter by specification.

Import cad and 3d files easily: Quickly construct a robotic system with high fidelity and interactive CAD and 3D objects. More than 40 formats are supported, including industrial CAD STEP and IGES.

Find the right end-of-arm tooling: Select from multiple tooling options from top manufacturers or import custom designed tools. All supported tools are plug and play compatible.

Visually create and modify trajectories: No more confusing lines of code or coordinate systems. Visually construct tool trajectories. Modify trajectories in real-time, see the changes in 3D, and execute them directly on the real robot.

Drag and drop automatic trajectory generation: Drag and drop 3D CAD objects into the design and proprietary algorithms automatically generate tool trajectories, which avoid collisions, save time, enhance performance, and reinforce safety. Turn hours of meticulous labour into a few easy clicks.

Create a full process without code: Orchestrate trajectories, tools, sensors, and synchronise I/O. No code to write.

Swap any robot and keep working: Thanks to proprietary algorithms, users can easily swap any robot with two clicks in their design to find the right one for the job. All trajectories and processes are automatically re-computed and incompatibilities can be fixed easily.

Deploy with one click: Thanks to deterministic real-time control algorithms, what you see in simulation is what you get in reality. Deploy an entire application with one click to the production robot and bridge the gap between simulation and reality. Monitor and adjust processes directly and in real-time.
