SimPlan presents App for the simulation of processing and packaging plants
The portfolio of the simulation expert SimPlan ranges from process simulation and virtual commissioning to the creation of digital twins of production and logistics processes. SimPlan is presenting a new app for Apple and Microsoft tablets at this year’s FachPack:
The creation of a simulation model for processing and packaging plants previously required not only expert knowledge but also a license for the simulation software PacSi.
With the “PacSi light” app, planners, service staff or sales staff can now configure a packaging system and have it simulated in the cloud. The app transfers the required parameters to a simulation server, which quickly returns key figures such as throughput and capacity utilization of the planned packaging line to the app. This enables users to configure a system in minutes at trade fairs and in meetings and to obtain information on the performance of the simulation.
In addition, SimPlan presents a newly developed user interface for the PacSi simulator. In order to be able to create the simulation on mobile devices, the user interface was adapted to the device-specific requirements. This interface will probably be available in the latest version of PacSi by the end of the year.
For the first time SimPlan will present its services for plant manufacturers in the field of kinematic investigations, strength analyses (FEM) and fluid mechanics (CFD) up to forming simulations at the FachPack. This allows plants to be investigated and optimized as early as the design phase.
In addition to these innovations, SimPlan will show its complete portfolio including weak point and potential analysis as well as production data acquisition according to DIN 8743.
The Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Faculty II – Mechanical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering, will present its services as a cooperation and research partner of SimPlan, especially in the field of teaching and research.
You will find SimPlan in hall 1, booth 1-230.
