Offline Programming System

Brotje-Automations offline programming solution based on Catia exceeds the requirements of our customers. Based on real time machine data many features have been developed over the past 20 years that make preparation, operation and optimization much easier than before.

The SOUL OLPS solution offers valuable features like offline programming, machine simulation based on real time machine data, data collection for optimized diagnostics, job control to ensure the correct programs are run in-sequence as well as other high rated features to plan, oversee and optimize production.

The Highlights of SOUL NC

The software isan industry-leading off-line programming System based on Catia V5. With this system, users can create, simulate, and optimize NC programs that follow a first-time-right-approach. One of its key features is the ability to generate native machine-ready code without the need for a post-processor.

SOUL OLPS uses Siemens VNCK for the most accurate virtual machine simulation, which helps to minimize the risk of errors and improve the overall efficiency of the programming process. Furthermore, the system also offers fast program edits, with automated NC program updating for changed CAD and process data.

Another advantage of OLPS is the minimal implementation time required for new machines, as well as support for 3rd party machines. All this comes with no annual license costs to bring the factory of the future to our customers shopfloor.

Aircraft Production goes “GREEN” – Broetje-Automation Collaborates with Airbus Aerostructures to Promote Sustainable and Resource-Efficient Production

Broetje-Automation has successfully collaborated with a broad industry consortium to identify ways to reduce the environmental impact of today’s production facilities. The “GREEN” project, a joint initiative of a consortium of partners including OFFIS e.V., DLR e.V., ProIng and Broetje-Automation GmbH under the leadership of AIRBUS Aerostructures, developed measures to reduce the power consumption of old systems by up to 85% in certain areas of application. Overall, especially retrofitting older systems allows significant contributions towards a more sustainable industrial production.
