Robot offline programming can reduce the production stoppage at least to 1/10 compared to online teaching or e.g. from 40 hours to less than 4 hours. This is the minimum norm and result of intensive product development and implementation projects with our clients during over two decades.

Offline programming (OLP) is a robot programming method that does not interfere with production as the programme for the robot is written outside the production process on an external PC. The process corresponds to the CNC programming practices, CAD/CAM. The Delfoi Robotics product range includes software for many different areas in almost all industrial robotics applications, and guarantees leading solutions to meet the needs of every company, thanks to software expertise that has been developed over more than two decades of professional experience. The software, which includes universal robot support and versatile and effective tools that are unique in the field, speaks for itself not just through its strengths, but also through our extensive list of international reference clients.
Robot’s utilization rate over 90%
The utilization rate of robots may be great with short-run production – even with one-off production. Delfoi is one of the world’s leading suppliers of robot offline programming (OLP) and simulation systems. Industrial companies manufacturing with Delfoi software have eliminated programming from their production and cut the programming downtime from two weeks or a month to a single day. The utilization rate of the robots has grown in a short-run production company from 30% to over 90%.
Offline programming supports Lean manufacturing
Offline programming (OLP) means programming robots outside the production and without stopping the production. Offline programming, unlike online programming by teaching, can eliminate production downtime (i.e. the “waste”) caused by the programming. The elimination of waste is a central development target in Lean manufacturing. The time for the adoption of new programs is cut from weeks to a single day, which enables the robotization of short-run production.
Calibration features guarantee that the programs will be precise and that the production run of new programs starts quickly. The software is employed both by small and medium-size enterprises and large world-class manufacturers.
Offline pogramming for different processes
Offline programming software is used with variety of robotized processes. Typically, the software is used to generate the tool paths and create a robot program automatically without need for typing any commands.
Simulation is an essential part of programming to avoiding collisions and checking for joint limits, speeds and accelerations. Also, analysis for quality confirmation before execution of the programs is crucial.
universal - robot brand independent software
Delfoi Robotics software products are robot brand independent. The same software goes for offline progrmming all major robot brands. This is a unique benefit for companies as they can freely invest in robot brand that best suit to their needs.
