With the ability to virtually design and validate your machine or plant you can increase your design flexibility, optimize manufacturing operations, and accelerate overall time to production. Rockwell Automation and Dassault Systèmes are collaborating to redefine how the mechanical engineer and the control engineer work together whether at an end user or machine builder. As a result, engineers involved in all stages of your design can make adjustments in real time — incorporating, preserving and augmenting knowledge rapidly across various stages of the production lifecycle.
Rockwell Automation and Dassault Systèmes are working to provide you with an optimized mechatronic virtual design environment. Machine builders can improve the overall machine effectiveness by testing components and designs virtually and selecting those which provide the highest machine throughput, most energy efficiency, smallest footprint, lowest cost or any combination of these requirements. The integration between SolidWorks and Motion Analyzer helps designers quickly simulate a variety of mechanical alternatives, motor-drive combinations and motion profiles in order to choose a solution optimized for a specific application.
