Modern 3D engineering technology and tools today make it possible to build, visualize and test complex machine designs in a virtual environment. A so-called Digital Twin of the physical machine or plant layout. The model is built as a 1: 1 electromechanical equivalent with built-in physical properties such as frictions, speeds and accelerations.
The electromechanical 3D model is today a completely natural and indispensable part of many of our automation projects, where the model is connected to the PLC system and simulates the electromechanical physical reality. In such a setup, we can, without the need for the actual physical machine, test PLC software functions and quality to a level that one would otherwise only achieve much later in the process.
3D models can be used to advantage right from the initial sales- and design phase, through the project execution, as well as the subsequent operational period where the machine or plant is operated at the end customer. .
Even after implementation and the handing over of the system to the customer, the model can prove valuable. New needs often arise and existing plants are rebuilt and modified. In these situations, it is valuable to adapt the digital twin and test new features and concepts prior to the actual remodel in production.
There are, in our opinion, many good reasons to consider whether your next automation project should also include a 3D digital twin.
If you want to hear more about digital twins and virtual commissioning, we are readily available for a non-binding talk about your next automation project.
