SCHUNK is proud to announce a partnership with READY Robotics to develop the Automation Explorer simulation tool. As automation technology advances, simulation technology must progress further to support specification, deployment, and re-deployment of automated systems. Automation Explorer is a state-of-the-art technology where users will virtually experience and interact with SCHUNK automation technology in a highly immersive and detailed, physics-based simulation tool.
NVIDIA Isaac SimTM, built on NVIDIA OmniverseTM, is a simulation platform used to develop, test, and deploy AI-based robotics applications. Its robust physics engine enables detailed, realistic simulations that closely emulate real-world conditions. READY Robotics is the developer of ForgeOS, the industrial OS for robots and automation, and a pioneer in cutting-edge automation solutions that overcome the obstacles faced by manufacturers. Automation Explorer combines NVIDIA Isaac SimTM, READY Robotics’ ForgeOS, and SCHUNK’s automation technologies.
Automation Explorer will take the term “digital twin” to the next level. Photo-realistic imaging of manufacturing environments, advanced robot control software, and world-class automation technology come together in one unique experience.
Physics-based technical product data from automation technology, like grippers, will drive the simulation. This allows true virtual commissioning of real-world automation projects. Simulating process automation with physics-based calculations means more accurate visualization and optimization before a robot ever reaches a production floor. Kel Guerin, Co-Founder and CIO at READY Robotics said, “By connecting ForgeOS and NVIDIA Isaac SimTM, customers will be able to control any robotic hardware and SCHUNK peripherals in simulation and the real world, in exactly the same way.”
“Automation Explorer will bring confidence to both new and experienced users of automation that their process is being optimized to its full potential. Whether investigating automation possibilities for the first time, or re-deploying automation equipment for a new task, Automation Explorer brings major opportunity for understanding automation process potential while also digitalizing and simplifying deployment tasks,” said Milton Guerry, president of SCHUNK USA.
SCHUNK is the international technology leader in toolholding and workholding, gripping technology and automation technology. Approximately 3,500 employees in 8 plants and 34 directly owned subsidiaries and distribution partners in more than 50 countries throughout the world ensure an intensive market presence. We are shaping the future with innovative technologies. The family-owned company is pushing the development and digitalization of its product and service portfolio to make industrial processes more efficient, transparent, and sustainable. SCHUNK is facing the current and future challenges together with its customers and partners: Hand in hand for tomorrow!
