    Virtual commissioning - time efficiency
    and risk minimisation at the same time

    Virtual commissioning: Welcome to the future of special machine construction

    Simulate your production plant before it is physically commissioned!

    Time and efficiency are everything these days. This is why we consistently utilise a time-saving solution in special machine construction: Virtual commissioning. 

    Virtual commissioning offers a realistic and precise simulation of the future operation of the system. This includes the interaction of various components, the testing of control and automation systems and the optimisation of process sequences. By creating a virtual environment, potential problems and bottlenecks can be recognised and rectified at an early stage, even before real production begins. 

    In addition, virtual commissioning enables comprehensive validation of operating sequences and process optimisation. Overall, virtual commissioning offers a transformative solution for our mechanical engineering, which not only improves the efficiency and accuracy of the commissioning process, but also strengthens our flexibility and agility in this area.

    Reduce commissioning costs with virtual simulation technologies

    By using innovative simulation technologies, the real machine is modelled down to the smallest detail in a virtual environment. This enables our engineers and technicians to carry out all aspects of commissioning digitally, from configuration and parameterisation to extensive tests and checks of the software implementation. 

    Virtual commissioning is a pioneering process that redefines the boundaries of the traditional commissioning process in special machine construction. Instead of relying on physical prototypes and time-consuming on-site testing, this advanced technology enables the complete digitalisation of the commissioning process.

    Your benefits at a glance

    Cost savings
    Time savings

    Thanks to virtual commissioning, we can get your system up and running much faster. By eliminating physical restrictions and providing access to a simulated environment, we can speed up the entire commissioning process.

    Risk Reduction
    Risk minimisation

    Virtual commissioning allows us to identify and resolve potential collisions and problems during the design phase. This minimises the risk of cost-intensive rework and adjustments during physical commissioning and ensures that your system processes run smoothly.

    Flexibility and scalability

    With our virtual solution, we test production steps and processes of the plant without physical parts. This not only minimises risk, but also allows us to react flexibly to changes in your product requirements, even during the development of the system.

    Targeted Training
    Improved training opportunities

    Virtual commissioning allows us to familiarise your employees with the system and provide intensive training without the need for physical prototypes or disrupting production. This not only improves efficiency, but also contributes to the safety and competence of your employees.

    FAQs Virtual commissioning

    What is virtual commissioning?

    Virtual commissioning is an innovative process in special machine construction in which the entire commissioning process of a system is carried out digitally and virtually. This makes it possible to carry out all tests, configurations and optimisations in a simulated environment before real production begins.

    What are the advantages of virtual commissioning?

    Virtual commissioning offers numerous advantages, including time and cost savings, risk minimisation, improved quality, flexibility in plant development and a realistic simulation of plant operation.

    What type of systems is virtual commissioning suitable for?

    Virtual commissioning is suitable for a wide range of systems in special machine construction, including robotic systems, production lines, production machines and more. It can be used in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, food production and others.

    What impact does virtual commissioning have on production time?

    Virtual commissioning can significantly reduce production time as potential problems and errors can be identified and rectified in the virtual environment. This leads to a faster time to market and a competitive advantage for companies.

    Is virtual commissioning cost-effective?

    Yes, virtual commissioning is cost-effective as it reduces the need for physical prototypes and expensive on-site testing. This enables optimised use of resources while minimising downtime and rework during the commissioning process.

    Can virtual commissioning be used for training purposes?

    Absolutely. Virtual commissioning provides an excellent opportunity to train employees, as it enables a realistic simulation of plant operation. Employees can familiarise themselves with the system and carry out training without the need for physical prototypes.
