Machinery system simulation for faster commissioning and monitoring

Improved design, controls and operation with multiphysics simulation

Estimated Watching Time: 51 minutes


An engineer runs a machinery system simulation on her desktop computer to improve machine design, controls and operation.

Manufacturing is evolving toward a flexible production with autonomous operations to respond to new customer requests, reduce manual labor, and streamline processes.

The growing engineering complexity is forcing machine builders to adopt new design practices to ensure machines are safe, perform as expected, and cost-effectively designed and built.

This on-demand webinar highlights how system simulation models support engineers during the development and lifecycle of production machines.

Multiphysics system simulations in the early design phase

System simulation models can efficiently drive the design of production machines by virtually benchmarking new technologies in terms of performance, reliability, carbon footprint, energy efficiency, costs, and more.

This webinar showcases real-world examples of how multiphysics system simulations in the early design phase investigated the best sizing of a delta picker and analyzed energy savings in a hydraulic press by comparing different configurations.

Watch the webinar replay and see firsthand how system simulation can accelerate the design process and save costs at the same time.

Integrating and validating smart controls sooner with system simulations

Once a precise virtual representation of a physical system is available, automation engineers can integrate and validate smart control strategies before a prototype is available.

Virtual commissioning reduces the time and costs associated with getting new machines up and running.

Watch the on-demand webinar and see how an organization used multiphysics simulation to perform virtual commissioning on a thermal subsystem within a unit-dose packaging machine and a tire manufacturer optimized the PID controller of the control valve regulating the internal heating process in a curing press.

Using system simulations to optimize manufacturing and plan maintenance

System models connected to real-time machine data can measure parameters that are unmeasurable or too expensive to be measured by real sensors.

Insights from these digital models can optimize manufacturing operations and improve maintenance planning.

See real-world examples of operators using multiphysics simulation models connected to real-time data to estimate the value of variables using virtual sensors and optimizing in-service performance to implement model-based predictive maintenance in this on-demand webinar.
