Velizy-villacoublay, France and San Francisco, US – Dassault Systèmes recently announced that Orangewood Labs is using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help develop its robot technology and speed up the manufacturing process. Orangewood Labs can support its vision to democratize robots to create a more equitable and inclusive future, where the benefits of cutting-edge robotics technology are available to all. It aims to develop affordable, safe, and robust robotic arms that are ideal for use across manufacturing applications such as visual inspection, power coating, pick and place, packaging, and more.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform has been instrumental in creating accurate virtual models, simulating robot performance, improving safety and efficiency, and identifying potential issues early on. The platform offers Orangewood Labs a holistic, real-time vision of creating a new generation of robotic arms that are more affordable, flexible, and accessible than ever before. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s 3D modeling and virtual reality (VR) technology is playing an incremental role in efficiently communicating designs and ideas to customers and partners involved, resulting in more productive collaborations. The platform connects people, ideas, data, and solutions in a single collaborative environment, offering a real-time view of the activities through 3D modeling, virtual twin simulation, and information intelligence to augment project efficiency in key project areas like design, planning, budgeting, prototyping, and execution.
The use of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has resulted in speeding up the product development time by as much as 40%. Also, the accuracy of 3D models has helped to enhance the performance, safety, and efficiency of the robots, thereby reducing the fabrication rework by around 70%. The simulation capabilities are aiding in the effective calculation of the reach of the robots, resulting in better decision-making and planning.
Orangewood Labs is a robotics startup focused on democratizing robots. The company offers robotics solutions to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and startups both in India and the USA. Orangewood Labs aims to provide tailored robotic technology solutions to help address challenges like limited capital, a skilled labor shortage, the high cost of implementation, and safety concerns. The company’s goal is to help organizations harness the power of robotics to solve a wide range of problems across industry verticals like manufacturing, healthcare, and education. Orangewood Labs’ affordable robotic technology solutions aim to make a transformative impact on society, creating a more efficient, sustainable, and equitable world for everyone.
Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a collaborative virtual environment that empowers businesses and people to innovate in entirely new ways and create products and services using virtual twin experiences. The platform provides a real-time view of a business’ activity and ecosystem, connecting people, ideas, and data, allowing everyone involved to interact and work together. Businesses can seamlessly design and test new experiences, from idea to market delivery and usage, before actually producing them.
Stating that the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables Orangewood Labs to strengthen the robotic arms manufacturing process by ensuring faster development, reduced wastage, and performance efficiency, Deepak NG, Managing Director India, Dassault Systèmes, said, “The platform will help streamline the manufacturing process and offer the required flexibility to deliver customized and connected robotics solutions. We look forward to working with Orangewood Labs to develop accessible and affordable robotic technology solutions that can help them achieve their goals of creating a safer, more efficient, and more productive world for all.”
In light of this, Abhinav Das, Chief Executive Officer, Orangewood Labs, commented, “Robots are transforming industries and revolutionizing the way we work and live. By leveraging the power of automation, artificial intelligence, and collaborative technologies, we can unlock new levels of productivity, efficiency, and safety while also creating new opportunities for growth and innovation.”
