Our latest simulation tool includes a physics engine that enhances modeling exercises to near-production values. By adding physics to the exploration exercise, we can study factors such as material properties and product shape, generating increasingly realistic results for Haskell customers.
Software that uses a physics engine can exponentially increase the advantages of manufacturing system design, installation and testing in a simulated environment. It improves these system analytics by factoring in actual physical variables that affect outcomes. Two examples of how the engine adds value:
- It can more accurately simulate the collision of many objects simultaneously.
- It can verify that the system design will work with the physical limitations of the product.
By including factors such as package weight or coefficients of friction for packaging materials into the equation, design models can emulate the physical properties of a system and better reflect what happens in actual production environments. This kind of applied physics can identify, test and solve hundreds of scenarios, all in real time.
Physics engine software allows us to put the most accurate and up-to-date simulation technology to work for our customers, projecting the most realistic scenarios on the line and addressing any issues well before start-up. Exploring and applying these types of advanced technologies are all part of our commitment to controlling costs and minimizing risk in modern manufacturing systems.
