K-ROSET is Kawasaki's offline robot simulation software. This tool allows the user to add 3D models of Kawasaki robots, peripheral equipment, robot tools, and workpieces into a virtual environment and build multi-robot automation work cells. The software emulates the processes of the actual Kawasaki robot controller and allows the user to interact with the 3D robot model through the teach pendant screens and button layout. The user can build a complete 3D representation of a work cell, write application-specific robot code, then run the robot code while viewing the robot motion and logic from the comfort of a laptop screen.
K-ROSET has several built-in tools to maximize the effectiveness of the simulation such as collision detection, cycle time analysis, and installation position analysis. The collision detection function alerts the user if objects collide during program operation. As the simulation is processed by the virtual robot controller, the trajectories and cycle time analysis tool produces highly accurate results. The user can output a video file of the 3D virtual work cell to use for design reviews and sales presentations.
