Kaiserslautern-based fleXstructures GmbH is a high-tech spin-off company from the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) that specializes in developing software solutions using state-of-the-art, high-efficiency algorithms. Thanks to ongoing cooperation with the Fraunhofer ITWM and the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Center in Sweden, the latest research results are continually integrated into the development process. The company's ever-expanding product portfolio centers on its IPS (Industrial Path Solutions) software, including IPS Cable Simulation, IPS Path Planner and IPS Virtual Paint Spray + Sealing. Just in time for HANNOVER MESSE 2017, fleXstructures GmbH has now launched another new tool - IPS Robot Optimization.
IPS Robot Optimization can be used to define robot movements across an entire production line. As a result, collisions both with other robots and with the surrounding environment can be prevented at the planning stage. In addition to internal monitoring within the cell, monitoring is also carried out automatically between the individual stations. fleXstructures GmbH is keen to highlight IPS Robot Optimization as an exceptionally reliable, high-quality solution that also speeds up processing times, with commissioning up to 75% faster and cycle time improved by up to 25%.
