RObCAD vs Tecnomatix

  • Hi,
    are going to purchase the Robcad for one of our project but the sales guy is confusing us.
    In our project we want to simulate ABB robots and modify the program and send it back to the robot.
    Do we need tecnomatix for this purpose or Robcad is sufficient.

  • Hi rupy,


    I supose you want to say process simulate.


    You can do de simulation and the offline with both two, you only need to buy the controller license too.


    You need to know that siemens doesnt perform updates from robcad, "they consider it an obsolet program".

  • It's up to you. Tecnomatix Process Simulate is modern and more intuitive.
    If u are going to use Robcad or Process Simulate be aware that you need to have RCS module to modify programs, otherwise robot will not behave as in simulation.
    On the other hand, you can use ABB RobotStudio which is preferable for simulating only ABB robots and modifing RAPID programs. You can get RobotStudio trial version for free.

  • Hi,
    We have to simulate the path of the robot and spot welding points.Then if there is any collision then we have to modify it and relaod to the actual robot.
    Is this can be done with ROBCAD +OLP+SPOT as our end customer is insisting on ROBCAD and saying no for tecnomatix.
    So can you throw some more light if the above type of simulation can be done with above mentioned sofware module combination or do we need something more.



    Our deliveribles to customer are as below
    Documentation of nominal and on-site object and tool frames issued with last delivery
    All paths must be collision free in Robcad
    SOP(s) must reference the uploaded paths reflect the on-site process , Ensure alignment (allocation and positions) between joining process, Robcad and robot programs
    Tooling sequence documentaion issued with final delivery

    Yes, you can do it with robcad, in fact i´m doing it right now with an entire line.


    Maybe subcontract this job is cheaper and faster than buying robcad only for this job...
