Digital Transformation for Industrial Machinery

Why more companies set simulation at the core of their innovation strategy

Virtual Altair Technology Conference ATCx April 14th, 2021 | 14:00 – 17:00 CEST

Experience development strategies that address machine builder’s industry challenges and learn how simulation driven development enables better decision making.

The key development goal of any machine building project is to achieve perfectly running production of high-quality products. By leveraging accurate virtual prototypes, seamless production can be ensured earlier in the development process to help assess and improve product profitability. The ATCx Industrial Machinery brings companies together from Processing & Packaging, CNC Tooling, Textile, Special Purpose Machines but also Mechanical Machinery Engineering Services as well as Robotics and Factory Automation.

The conference offers project managers, engineers, experts, and decision makers from design, electrical, control and simulation an interdisciplinary exchange opportunity and provides insights into:

  • Simulation strategies to ensure the quality of the final product by encompassing the entire process with all variables including the products produced by the machine.
  • Accurate virtual prototypes that represent machine behavior to properly size drives and mechanics, safely increase cycle rates while maintaining accuracy, precision and robustness,
  • System simulation to optimize control systems to reduce commissioning efforts,
  • The use of existing data to enable AI-assisted decision making.
