Time 09:00 to 14:00

Duration 1 Day

Commissioning a new production machine, cell, or line is a crucial phase of a project.

It demonstrates whether the overall system, consisting of mechanics, electrical systems and automation, will operate as planned. Unplanned behaviour can quickly lead to delays and high costs - virtual commissioning greatly reduces this risk.


With a digital twin of the machine, machine builders can simulate and validate all the functions and the interactions between mechanical components, electrical equipment, and automation at an early stage. During virtual commissioning, with thorough troubleshooting, the risk of errors or defects in the real machine is significantly reduced. This enables you to reduce the time to market, lower costs and increase flexibility and productivity.



During this half day event, you will learn to:

- Quickly generate Mechatronic concepts of your Machine, Cell or Line to estimate throughput and power consumption


- Generate a true Digital Twin of your Machine consisting of the Mechanical, Electrical and Automation function


- Use the Digital Twin to Virtually Commission your Machine - How have our customers reduced their commissioning times by as much as 50%


- Offer new services to your customers such as Virtual Operator Training

Our Clients

The tailored update training we attended was very informative and was delivered by a competent and knowledgeable adviser. The instructor was very happy to go off topic during the training to help with any other questions that we had with Solid Edge.

FSM Manufacturing Ltd

NX is an industry-standard product and we are a startup company, but we now know that we could not have managed without it. We knew that NX is robust and utterly predictable, and with our ambitious timescales that is exactly what we needed.


A boat is a very, very complicated product, but we can find no limitation with NX and Teamcenter. There is nothing that we cannot do using NX and It is extremely easy to locate parts with Teamcenter for re-use or resizing.

Sunseeker International Ltd

Teamcenter gave us the greatest possibilities for a product lifecycle system - the ability to track samples, costing, bills of materials for the factory and much more. It is one of the things that will allow us to stay relevant and comptetitive, improving our speed to market.
