Upgrading to Automation
Today’s challenging packaging machine design environment requires manufacturers to update and automate their product development processes. Upgrading from methods that rely on non-integrated, point solutions in favor of concurrent, fully-integrated 3D design and manufacturing approaches decreases time to market and increases quality.
Incorporating Mechatronics Into Your Design Process
Traditional Sequential Design Approach
Mechatronics Parallel Design Approach
Mechatronics design has evolved from the traditional sequential approach with the physical prototype used to validate and optimize to the modern parallel design approach, leveraging the virtual prototype for validation and optimization thereby leading to faster and more efficient product development cycles.
Graphical System Design Tools
With SOLIDWORKS software, you can design machine parts and assemblies using a familiar interface with 3D visualization. SOLIDWORKS Motion, an integrated feature, utilizes mechanism dynamics to help simulate mechanism motion.
