A new visualisation tool from B&R accelerates development of automation solutions featuring its SuperTrak industrial transport system. The tool displays a 3D simulation of all SuperTrak shuttle movements, as well as synchronised subsystems such as robotics and CNC. Machine builders and operators can accelerate the commissioning process by validating their designs and sequential programming in advance.
3D simulation with machine code
The visualisation tool and extensive simulation options are fully integrated in B&R’s Automation Studio software development environment. All simulations are based on real machine code and no additional simulation software or interfaces are required.
In simulation mode, a 3D visualisation in the development environment allows processes to be fine-tuned prior to commissioning. With a few clicks of the mouse, the optimised machine code is then transferred to the target hardware.
At runtime, the visualisation tool processes sensor signals to display machine movements on the HMI screen in real time. 3D visualisation is the perfect way to monitor your manufacturing processes. 3D simulation shows the behaviour of all shuttles in combination with synchronised subsystems like robotics and CNC.
