Empowering Machine Builders for Virtual Factory Acceptance Tests

By William Chanatry

Manufacturers are increasingly requiring digital twins from their machine builders for virtual factory acceptance tests. By embracing game-changing technology from Siemens, machine builders can exceed these demands.

Register here for our live webinar on July 7th

A Comprehensive Digital Twin Solution and Virtual Commissioning for Machine Design

With a Siemens NX comprehensive digital twin solution and virtual commissioning, companies can reduce their costs and time to market, and harness the layers of complexity and data in machine design. Specifically, they can create a 3D CAD model of a machine that simulates the machine’s real behavior, with the simulations controlled by a virtual PLC. Thanks to these tools, mechanical, electrical and automation engineers can work collaboratively to increase first-time quality.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Identify and correct errors in the virtual world to improve machine quality
  • Train operators prior to installation and operation
  • Enhance customer buying experiences by showcasing the machine’s digital twin
  • Validate sequence of operations to avoid potential machine damage
  • Learn the elements of a virtual factory acceptance test

Who should register for this webinar?

This webinar will help anyone interested in learning how to assist machine builders in embracing a virtual factory approach to improve machine quality and output.
