How can standardization of machines and components be achieved, while facing high product variety and cost pressure?

Due to the individualization of production, smaller batch sizes and increasing diversity of parts, the demand for flexible automation technology is growing immensely. In addition, monotone and recurring work steps are to be shifted to robots, so that machine operators are available for higher quality and more demanding tasks. Companies are therefore forced to automate processes in order to remain competitive. A 3D plant model, which can be developed in FASTSUITE as a digital simulation twin of the plant, offers valuable support in the implementation of these projects.

 

Digital simulation twin

Reduced machine or cell downtime, higher productivity

Accurate and realistic simulation


 

How can digital support tools help me to be more competitive and improve my process from design until SoP (Start of Production)?

The fast and easy, 3D-based creation and visualization of plant concepts is an important competitive advantage in the offer phase of projects. 
A layout that grows with the project during the implementation phase helps to identify and eliminate problems early on. This reduces complex and costly corrections in later project phases.
Programming the robots and simulating the entire plant in FASTSUITE, using the real control programs, enables the production line to be ramp up at a very early stage.

 

Visualization of cell or plant concepts

Re-use data in one single simulation platform

Offline programming software with the same user interface for robotic and machining


 

How can I manage better long commissioning cycles with high risks of delay, as well as unplanned additional efforts and costs?

The combination of the digital plant model with a powerful offline programming of the robot applications, which is independent of technology and manufacturer, makes it possible to prepare new components and production variants completely on the computer - and thus parallel to ongoing production. By simulating the created programs on the basis of virtual controllers, an early program validation and optimization can be carried out and the ramp-up times on the real plant can be drastically reduced.
