The world's most used offline programming tool for robotics

Offline programming is the best way to maximize return on investment for robot systems. ABB's simulation and offline programming software, RobotStudio, allows robot programming to be done on a PC in the office without shutting down production, this allows you to perform tasks such as training, programming and optimization.

The tool is built on the ABB Virtual Controller, an exact copy of the real software that runs your robots in production. This allows very realistic simulations to be performed, using real robot programs and configuration files identical to those used on the shop floor.
