Energid and ModuleWorks announce partnership for combined CAD/CAM software solutions

April 2, 2019 ModuleWorks and Energid Technologies announced a partnership for a combined software solution that will add Energid’s adaptive kinematics and collision-avoidance capabilities to ModuleWorks’ optimized toolpath for CAD/CAM robotic systems. ModuleWorks is a software component provider for the CAD/CAM industry, and Energid is the provider of Actin, a commercial robotic software development kit (SDK) and tasking framework for real-time, adaptive motion control. This partnership is intended to help developers to get to market faster with differentiated robotic systems for additive manufacturing, welding, machining, CNC routing, and other applications that require control of six axes or more.

A major challenge for robotic system developers is how to get the robot to automatically perform a complex task without getting stuck. The flexibility of Actin allows customers to build on the exact motion control capabilities they need to create their own proprietary products. This is an addition to the ModuleWorks range of path planning applications as the combination of these products enables complex applications to be developed.
