Build PLC- Connected Virtual Commissioning Models of Machines or Automated Systems in SOLIDWORKS
Emulate3D is the technology you need for Dynamic Digital Twins for Logic Testing
Emulate3D is on booth 121802 and will be featuring our new Emulate3D for Machine Builders product, as well as an interactive virtual machine prototype. You will be invited to experience the prototype via an in-VR browser-based HMI, buttons, and levers. Watch the video here. We’ll also offer you a free seat at an online workshop (usual price $299) so you can try out the technology for yourself after an instructor-led introductory course.
Save Time and Money with Emulate3D Dynamic Virtual Prototypes
Emulate3D for Machine Builders helps you create fully operational controls testing models of a wide range of machine types, directly within SOLIDWORKS. Debug and refine the kinematic sequences and timing of your designs in a virtual environment, and make changes to them faster than is possible with physical prototypes. Watch the video here.
Connect the Mechanical Truth to the Logical Truth in a Virtual Environment
Create your machine or mechanical system in CAD, mark up the various kinematic and control elements, add a load source if the operation is triggered by the presence of products, then connect the control and activation elements to the PLC IO, and run the emulation model. By combining your mechanical CAD information with the real control system logic you can create a valuable test bed in the form of a Dynamic Digital Twin.
Virtual Prototyping Reduces Risks, Shortens Project Cycles, and Reduces Costs
View and verify the system operation and control logic before you commit expenditure to building the real system. Use the controls HMI to train operators offline in a safe and repeatable environment, while eliminating disruption to running operations. Create system failures that would be costly or dangerous in the real world, and develop start up and recovery sequences that would be problematic outside the virtual environment.
The benefits of dynamic virtual prototyping using Emulate3D for Machine Builders include:
- Faster automation project development
- Thorough logic sequence and timing verification
- Elimination or reduction of costly physical prototypes
- Effective, safe, and non-disruptive user training
