Realize LIVE: 3D Material Flow Simulation in the Metal Manufacturing Industry

Join us on Wednesday, June 24, 1:50 PM – 2:10 PM EDT / 10:50 AM – 11:10 AM PDT

Today’s manufacturing industry is coping with an increasing variety and complexity. 3D material flow simulation offers significant benefits to visualize the whole manufacturing processes and manage the complexity. This presentation will show how Plant Simulation is used at EMAG to visualize and analyze the manufacturing line in the metal processing industry. It covers the 3D-Animation of moveable components and the evaluation of production line performance using an internal developed simulation tool kit. The experiences, quick wins and limitations will also be shared in this presentation.

Speaker: Zhaocheng Xu, Virtual Manufacturing Engineer, EMAG Systems GmbH

Zhaocheng Xu, born in 1989, studied international production engineering and management at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. In 2018, he joined EMAG group as a virtual manufacturing engineer, and since then he is responsible for the visualization and evaluation of manufacturing concepts and the standardization of simulation projects using Plant Simulation.
