Simulations and Tool Chains – Jos van der Geest, Intralogistic Experts – Demo3D is an excellent tool for building simulation models of material handling equipment. But how can we build simulation models that can be reused without reprogramming? This presentation discusses two examples. Also, let us review the position of Demo3D in the entire tool-chain of system integrators: This presentation shows an example where a detailed costprice calculation and quotation ducument are generated from a conveyor layout in Demo3D.
Integration using Demo3D APIs: The Shamrock Conveyor System, Mark Rolfes, BreakThru Technology – The Demo3D APIs allow you to integrate your own computer systems more deeply than you might think. The Shamrock Conveyor System provides a single integrated system that supports the entire conveyor system development process. See how Shamrock uses the Demo3D APIs to closely control the Demo3D environment and integrate its simulation capabilities tightly with PLC coding, SCADA, requirements gathering and systems documentation. Taking advantage of these capabilities can make the Demo3D software even more valuable to your organization.
Remote operation of a semi-automated forklift – Abdulhameed Al-Shaebi, Raymond Handling – In today’s material handling industry, basic forklift movements such as traveling and lifting are simple to automate, while load handling remains a challenging task. The development of remote control capabilities where skilled operators only intervene to perform this complex task is a key step towards improving warehouse efficiency. However, it is a challenge to justify the associated investment without employing simulation. Demo3D plays a key role in quantifying the benefits and impacts of the remote operation implementation, and is used to evaluate different camera placement scenarios. This presentation provides detail on the remote operation, the role of Demo3D, and the expected benefits.
Robots – The Next Generation – Dave Dawkins, Emulate3D – Recent developments of some core technologies have opened up some exciting possibilities for modeling robots in Emulate3D. “CAD Is The Model” allows for fast import of new robots, complete with joint definitions and limits. VR provides a new way to teach and comprehend robot moves in a totally convincing context that you’ll find addictive. In addition, there are developments in display technology (SVG) and the ability to import and export native robot programs in the pipeline.
A Few Seats Remain Available – Call Now – Feb 20 – Little America, Salt Lake City, Utah – The pre-User Group Meeting Training Day is a great place to hone your skills, raise your productivity, and learn directly from our highly experienced trainers. We’ll be running two parallel courses – one Professional Level Training for those who have attended the online workshop, and an Advanced Level Training course for those who want to do more with their scripting skills to create intelligent catalog items or get more from their models.
