The IKA (Institut für Konstruktionstechnik und Anlagengestaltung – institute for construction technology and plant design) Dresden will become a SimPlan branch office starting on 1st October 2015.
The IKA Dresden was founded in 1992 as a private research institute, focusing on the analysis, simulation and optimisation of facilities and processes in packaging and processing technology. Furthermore, IKA Dresden developed the process simulation tool PacSi, the only specialized system for the packaging industry.
The SimPlan group with its’ headquarter in Maintal (Germany) and subsidiaries in Germany, Austria and China, is a cross-sector full-range provider of material flow simulation services in production and logistics. As of now, IKA Dresden will help represent SimPlan’s service spectrum in central Germany. This will complement the IKA’s continuing service portfolio for machine manufacturers and their customers in the food, beverages, pharma and cosmetics industry. Simultaneously, the IKA, as a competence centre for the packaging industry, will reinforce SimPlans expertise in this area.
