The field of mechatronics deals with the interaction of mechanical, electronic and IT-related systems. In mechatronics, the boundaries between the areas of mechanics, electricity, electronics and information technology are put aside. Instead, the system is viewed as a single functional unit. The key objective is the preparation and processing of all information so that it can be used across all of these areas. This consolidation created new automation requirements and resulted in increasingly complex systems with highly mathematical algorithms running in the background.
Simulation provides fast and easy access to these systems with the possibility to simulate individual axes as well as controllers and entire systems. The versatility of simulation means that information can be processed optimally, creating added value for the machine and production line as well as for the team and the developers.
industrialPhysics is a leading tool for system and process simulation. Existing systems can be made dynamic by simply importing CAD data into iPhysics. They can then be connected to Automation Studio via TCP after generating a communication task.
