Risong opens up market opportunities with digital factory platform

Chinese system integrator uses FASTSUITE Edition 2 from layout planning to commissioning

As one of the leading Chinese system integrators, RISONG is therefore required to support its customers quickly and efficiently from the initial idea to the commissioning of an automation solution. Since December 2017, the company has been using the FASTSUITE Edition 2 digital factory platform for this purpose. The customer receives a 3D layout plan directly after the initial consultation. The RISONG team can add the required resources from libraries or import them from CAD systems in just a few steps. The layout created in this way can be used immediately to simulate processes and ensure feasibility. This includes, for example, the performance of accessibility analyses. In the subsequent engineering phase, RISONG uses the offline programming of FASTSUITE Edition 2 to program and commission the system. In the field of welding systems, RISONG has also specialized in adaptive, camera-guided systems, which are also optimally supported by the software. Upon request, the customer then receives a FASTSUITE Edition 2 software package adapted to the system, so that he can reprogram the system independently to meet new requirements.

For more information concerning the project please refer to the FASTSUITE Edition 2 Newsroom.
