Robotics and Automation

Robotics

Robotics

Our service portfolio is aimed specifically at manufacturers of industrial robots.

1D System Simulation

Modeling of mechanics, electrics & control in one common model. Dynamic stiffness with closed loop control, positioning process, control optimization, HiL (Hardware-in-the-Loop). Design of spec. grippers, pneumatics.

3D MBD/ FEA

Stat. and dyn. stiffness of mechanics. Mechanics of spec. grippers.

Automation

Automation

From our own experience, we know how difficult it is sometimes to test a PLC program without doing so on the real machine or system. The PLC manufacturers offer simulation software, but there are always surprises. Why? Because the physical model often doesn’t correspond to reality. The reason is, as for so many times, different priorities, lack of time and communication between the different departments. We can be the interface, we translate what your mechanical engineering department develops into a high-fidelity model for automation technology. We use Matlab / Simulink® and Siemens Simcenter Amesim®.

1D System Simulation

Modeling of all physical domains in one common model. Calculation of power requirements, energy consumption, optimization of competing objectives. Virtual commissioning, HiL (hardware-in-the-loop).

3D MBD

When designing assemblies in the CAD system, joints are usually set so that the kinematics (the movement) is correct. The kinetics (the forces resulting from these constraints) are usually not taken into account because this is irrelevant for the representation in the CAD system. We use MBD to check the function and dynamics (= kinematics + kinetics) of the mechanical components and determine the loads for a subsequent FEA calculation.

3D FEA

Deformation, stress & strength evaluation.

3D CFD

Detailed fluid flow optimization.
