Increasing variant diversity and declining batch sizes, further increases in automation levels, and last but not least, the requirements of ‘Industrie 4.0’ are causing mechanical complexity to be replaced by high-performance, flexible control engineering. This means a rise in the mechatronic engineering element involved in the development of machines and automation engineering.
To handle the resulting requirements, numerous high-performance applications are available, including tools for cycle time and layout planning, 3D CAD with kinematics, simulation applications for creating behaviour models, ECAD for pneumatic and electrical planning, and development environments for PLC and robot programming. The software systems ensure early validation of the products, with the advantages that this saves time and cuts costs.
However, the advantages associated with this specialisation are countered by yet more challenges: a lack of data continuity, repeated data acquisition, conversion and updating problems, highly specialised user skills, complex licence management, unused though expensive functions, and above all the absence of a general overview of the planned product or system.
At Feynsinn, we help companies on their way to an integrated mechatronic process chain. We set the course for the seamless integration of machines in a single digital model – from the initial concept to the initial commissioning of the machines – providing process planning, 3D design, mechatronic engineering and behaviour modelling, process simulation and control software.
