Technology to Develop Digital Twins
Rockwell Automation Encompass Product Partner, Maplesoft, showcased their MapleSim software at Automation Fair in Philadelphia. MapleSim software is an advanced multidomain modeling and simulation tool for developing digital twins of production machines for conceptual design, for virtual commissioning and for component “right-sizing.”
MapleSim software integration with Studio5000 Simulation Interface can create a digital twin representation of a machine to run models in real time. This provides the capability to test the system in real time and helps companies reduce development risk and bring high-quality products to market faster.
Like any industry that faces fierce competition, the world of machine design is growing its ability to create advanced machines that perform without fail.
As new products push the limits of current engineering practices, new tools are required to assist engineers when their intuitions and current skillsets are being strained.
A digital twin is one of these new tools, and as their adoption continues, we can expect to see new products that push the limits of what is possible in the automation industry.
