Visual aids such as drawings, plans and photographs, and later CAD drawings and 3D renders; have been the visualization tools that production planners and systems integrators have used for decades to define production design concepts. In the last few years, with Industry 4.0, these tools have combined with simulation technology and the Internet to turn into 3D manufacturing simulation technology. This technology processes different inputs and data together, such as CAD geometries and programming logic, and creates accurate visuals and simulations of these inputs, using production-specific simulation behaviors. In this way, it helps planning teams visualize and review factory environments, production design and performance in line with engineering information, reduces the risk of design errors and oversight, and enables more stakeholders to participate in the planning process.
Work in line with this technology, to offer you the best output, we work with Visual Components, one of the world’s leading simulation programs. With the Premium package, which is the most comprehensive package offered by the Visual Components program, we improve your factory and your production with industry 4 requirements and increase your efficiency and competitiveness.
- Test your production line changes in the virtual world first
Testing and simulating your line’s performance in a virtual world help you identify problems and improvements before implementing them in the real world.
- Troubleshoot early in the process
Simulation can help you identify and visualize problems that are preventing your line from working.
- Simulate and optimize the production of your existing line
Identify small changes that can lead to major performance improvements by testing and simulating process changes. Test different scenarios. Simulation can guide you how scenarios such as lack of operators or long-term machine maintenance affect production and how you can react to these issues.
- Test product range variations
Simulation can be helpful when deciding whether to change the product variant being produced on your line and want to evaluate the effects of this change on overall production. You can test variations in the product range and see how it affects production performance.
- Better predictability
A critical point for manufacturers is the timely delivery of their products. 3D manufacturing simulation software can give you greater predictability for your line operations and help you plan more realistic delivery schedules.
- Easily present your projects to management
To communicate what is going on in production or to explain any changes in production, you can use simulation work to back up your arguments and help them better understand the ROI and benefits of each decision down the line.
