Simfact helps you build your digital twin. A virtual 3D representation of your workcell or the complete factory gives great advantages and opportunities:
Validation of automation initiatives.
Eliminates the need for multiple prototypes.
Faster and cheaper iterations in design phase.
Reduces total development time.
Improves quality of the final workcell.
Reduces downtime on existing equipment.
Majority of decision-making prior to hardware investment.
Enables Offline Programming.
Whenever there is an automation project, either green field (new) or brown field (existing) installation, we help refine your Digital twin from current state, whether it is non-existent or in-progress.
We provide services within three project stages, either individually or in context. Often a project starts out as a feasibility study and if the business case shows out to be advantageous, then it evolves in to an actual automation project. This is where we provide detailed workcell simulation and contribute to the project as a key member of the project group.
Here is an overview of the three stages and the tasks usually occurring. They are described in detail on the following pages.
Process clarification & analysis (understanding the primary process)
Solution development (automation scenarios)
DFM (automation enhancements towards the product)
Preliminary dynamic 3D layout (reach/collision analysis)
Preliminary cycle simulation (indicative flow and cycle times)
