Commercial software library

Kineo CAM’s KWS-UAF software library is the first commercial solution created, says the company, to develop efficient interactive features for assembly/mounting and servicing/dismounting of complex systems. The software technology (or KWS-UAF) positions itself between low-end manual approaches and high-end automatic features: the user builds motion interactively, but the collisions created during the motion are automatically removed by the software library. For this reason, KWS-UAF can also complement haptic-based systems for finding collision-free paths as a lighter solution; a 6-D mouse can do the job. Another strength of KWS-UAF is Virtual Reality. Equipped with a tracking device, the user is immersed to manipulate the part to assemble or disassemble, and KWS-UAF manages the collision avoidance. The user drags the part, and KWS-UAF keeps it clear of collisions with obstacles.
