The virtual twin and virtual commissioning
At ASIS, the various disciplines involved in the plant are directly linked to each other. Even before the first screw has been set, our employees sit together at the virtual plant and put it into operation.
The virtual image of the PLC including the program running there is connected here with the robot simulation and a parallel simulation of sensors and actuators to form an entire virtual plant in which every single functionality can be tested in advance.
The reduction of on-site times is a strong focus here.
Virtual commissioning requires the creation of a virtual twin of the plant. Each sensor and each actuator is mapped with its real behavior and linked to the corresponding signals of the plant control.
Only in this way can real functional tests of the plant be carried out.

Usecase: Patch sealing (automatic hole sealing) for corrosion protection on car bodies
- In our simulations, the application head is represented with its real mechanical and also signal behavior.
- This results in much more accurate application times for different application distances, as the virtual twin of the applicator even takes into account the different movement times of the pad.
- This enables us to predict the number of possible pads within the required cycle time much better.
