Optimized engineering with 3D SuperTrak simulation

3D simulation shows the behavior of all shuttles in combination with synchronized subsystems like robotics and CNC.

A new visualization tool from B&R accelerates development of automation solutions featuring its SuperTrak industrial transport system. The tool displays a 3D simulation of all SuperTrak shuttle movements, as well as synchronized subsystems such as robotics and CNC. Machine builders and operators can accelerate the commissioning process by validating their designs and sequential programming in advance.

3D simulation with machine code The visualization tool and extensive simulation options are fully integrated in B&R’s Automation Studio software development environment. All simulations are based on real machine code and no additional simulation software or interfaces are required.

In simulation mode, a 3D visualization in the development environment allows processes to be fine-tuned prior to commissioning. With a few clicks of the mouse, the optimized machine code is then transferred to the target hardware. At runtime, the visualization tool processes sensor signals to display machine movements on the HMI screen in real time. 3D visualization is the perfect way to monitor your manufacturing processes.

As you join us today from India and elsewhere, we have a favour to ask. Through these times of ambiguity and challenge, the packaging industry in India and in most parts of the world has been fortunate. We are now read in more than 90 countries as our coverage widens and increases in impact. Our traffic as per analytics more than doubled in 2020 and many readers chose to support us financially even when advertising fell to pieces.

As we come out of the pandemic in the next few months, we hope to again expand our geography and evolve our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information, with some of the best correspondents in the industry. If there were ever a time to support us, it is now. You can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help to sustain us by subscribing.
