Increase Productivity with Offline Programming
Unleash the full power of your system and maximize ROI with offline programming (OLP). Have a new system being installed? OLP allows you to easily create, program, and simulate your robotic work cell without the physical need and expense of a prototype. Have an existing line? Train your staff or optimize your process without disturbing production.
By using an exact copy of your production software, OLP reduces risk while enabling visualization of single and multi-robot systems prior to install or modification. Transfer a completed program from computer to controller in just one step via USB.
We offer OLP software that is specific to your robot solution, as well as a complimentary suite of software enhancements designed to simplify and optimize training, implementation, and your workflow.

REAL CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
Efficiency through Offline Progamming, Proven.
“As far as the cutout shape goes, the Offline Programming was dead on. These programs took one programmer about 8 hours to fine tune and it scrapped 5 parts. To create this program manually, it would take the programmer about 36-40 hours to write and fine tune into tolerance. Also, the manual way would probably scrap about 15-20 parts. In my opinion, the offline programs from Shape Process Automation was almost 100% accurate considering how much time it took to complete the program, how many parts were scrapped, and how far the TCP was from the target.”
