Finding the best simulation solution
Elm Electrical, a full service energy contracting company based in Massachusetts, recently chose Visual Components as their simulation software after a thorough evaluation of different simulation tools.
The company had been on the market for a simulation solution for a few years, but ultimately, their choice was mainly motivated by Visual Components’ ease of use and the availability of a PLC add-on, especially important as the company plans to grow. A brief training session was all it took for them to get started and currently they have one engineer dedicated to using the software full-time. In just the last two months, they’ve created seven simulations with the software.
More viable production lines
Previously Elm Electrical has only been simulating Fanuc robots using Fanuc’s propriety simulation tool while the rest of the layout has been static. Visual Components now enables Elm Electrical to expand simulation to cover the entire production line, which enables them to give their customers a better look at what they are going to get – by showing a realistic virtual production line.
