YUTAKA Electronics Industry uses the possibilities of virtual commissioning as a real added value for their customers
Virtual commissioning is one of the central elements for YUTAKA to achieve the strategic goal: "For a typical automation system that includes various machinery, equipment, sensors, and robots, it is imperative to perform trial runs and final commissioning at the customer’s site ‘’explains Masaki NARUSE, Managing Director at YUTAKA. “We see virtual commissioning as a clear opportunity to increase the quality, efficiency, and profitability of project execution”. To this end, the company already conducted a feasibility study in 2019 based on CENIT's FASTSUITE E2 Digital Twin software platform. The results were also announced and demonstrated at IREX 2019 (International Robot Exhibition), and YUTAKA had a lot of positive feedback from customers in automotive and other industries.
With the goal of expanding its automation solutions in the areas of painting, material handling, deburring, and laser manufacturing worldwide while maintaining competitiveness in fierce competition, the Japanese company is increasingly focusing on the potential power of digitalization.
Since the beginning of 2021, YUTAKA has been starting to use virtual commissioning feature using FASTSUITE E2 in real production process: "With FASTSUITE first of all, the conceptual design was optimized by simulating a proposed concept in early stages Then design, initial integration, debug, and readjustments were tested out virtually in order to reduce shop-floor integration and rework. This increased the productivity in this project by 50%. ‘’ concludes Daisuke MATSUO, Supervisor of System Integrator Division at YUTAKA.
"FASTSUITE Edition 2 enables standardized programming by an identical user interface and consistent algorithms for path optimization. The software helps reduce startup risks while ensuring maximum-quality of offline teaching and a clear boost in programming efficiency."
