Merging simulation results as an integral part of plant design
Simulation as standard
Nowadays, pure robot simulation is already a matter of course in plant design. In both the automotive and general industries, hardly any plants are built that have not first been examined in a simulation.
Here, for the most diverse applications such as painting, sanding, plug setting or powder suction – to name just a few – the necessary robot types are selected, reachabilities checked, cycle times determined and robot programs generated.
- Simulation of interlinked processes
- Material flow simulation and cycle time verification
- Offline robot programming
- Achievability studies for concept verification
Risk of oversizing
In plant planning, the “largest body” is often examined by the customer in order to be on the safe side. All the necessary applications in this area must be carried out within the required cycle time.
This is a phenomenon that we observe in the automotive industry. Ultimately, with different processing times for the workpieces, this inevitably leads to overdimensioning of the system in practice, since a fixed cycle time is calculated for each station during the design.
ASIS therefore basically offers a holistic plant design in which we link the pure robot simulation of the individual stations with a material flow simulation of the entire plant. In such considerations, it has already been proven that by taking into account all the different processing times of the components, the number of stations and thus the overall size of a plant can be significantly reduced.
The holistic approach succeeds by linking general robot simulation systems with a material flow simulation. This results in important findings and high potential for cost reduction both for new plants and for modernization, retrofit and conversion.
However, the comprehensive support does not end after the planning is completed. We also accompany our projects during pre-assembly, commissioning up to the optimization phase and provide 100% prefabricated offline programs.
ASIS GmbH offers the entire spectrum of digital possibilities from planning to optimization. For in-house optimization, however, customers can also make use of simulation cells for manufacturer-specific simulation systems.
