On November 14 at 2 p.m. ET, machine tool builder Mazak (Florence, Kentucky) will host a webinar titled “Digital Simulation Software for Manufacturing” to demonstrate how a virtual manufacturing strategy can manage risks, improve time-to-market goals and reduce expensive downstream changes.
Presented by Joe Kraemer, corporate accounts manager for Mazak, the webinar will explore three main areas of digital simulation software use: cellular manufacturing with palletized systems, robotic systems using various resources and operations, and factory analysis for both used and existing facilities.
According to the company, participants will gain valuable insight as to how digital simulation software can help:
·Properly configure a cellular manufacturing system based on customer requirements,
including what Mazak PALLETECH automation system – single, double or tri-level –
would best apply to an application,
·Simulate manufacturing schedules to determine if processes can be completed within
specific time parameters, ensure full use of available resources as well as perform
“what-if” analyses of various production schedules and part mixes,
·Easily assign production variables such as cycle times, load/unload times, parts per
pallet, line layout and operator assignments,
·Determine the number of resources required, such as robots, conveyors and part
washers, to meet a customer’s needs with the goal of maximizing capacity utilization,
·Visualize, analyze and optimize an entire factory prior to implementing a new orchanging an existing manufacturing process,
·Accurately predict the production and financial impact of process changes,
·Determine projected revenues and profitability based on proposed production changes.
