Presentation of the complete IPS product range at the Hanover Fair 2016 for the first time: IPS Cable Simulation, IPS Path Planner, IPS Robot Optimization, IPS Virtual Paint-Spray and IPS Virtual Paint-Sealing.
Both our sales partners in Japan (SCSK) and China (PAN-i) have hosted major events for IPS users and people interested in the software.
1st IPS Cable Simulation User Conference in Deidesheim: For the first time, users and interested persons from all over the world have come together for a fruitful exchange with IPS experts and other users from various domains.
IPS in Japan: start of the cooperation with our sales partner SCSK. In October, the latter has organized an IPS Cable Simulation Technical Seminar with 50 participants from Japan’s automotive industry.
Cooperation of FCC and Fraunhofer ITWM: There was a need to add flexible wire models to the automatic path planning of IPS, because the service pipes, which were carried along with the robots’ motions, often wore out early. This is why in 2004 FCC started cooperating with Fraunhofer ITWM and new algorithms were integrated into the IPS software environment.
Development of the software Industrial Path Solutions (IPS): In the context of projects in the field of robotics and factory automation, Fraunhofer Chalmers Centre (FCC) in Gothenburg has developed algorithms for automatic path and assembly planning. This technology is included in the software Industrial Path Solutions (IPS).
