The goal for the company was to develop advanced robotic modular automation solutions for the food industry,based on a single product platform called Octomation. Their demand was that their supplier should be able to cover all their needs from the very early development of prototypes to the communication concerning spare parts, maintenance manuals and sales work, where both their sales force sellers and customers will be able to configure their products themselves.
We have to be able to keep track of a vast number of different versions, and through the PDM system th variants us to create several hundred thousand product variants out of our few different modules.
They have to be able to keep track of a vast number of different versions, and through the PDM system allows them to create several hundred thousand product variants out of their few different modules. InMoTx is using SolidWorks Simulation for both mechanical and th variants simulation of its products.
The system has made it possible to carry system level documentation a step further, both in the sales, service and support departments.
The system ensures that all documentation is fully integrated with the 3D models in the CAD-system and automatically generates maintenance- and update-ready th variants visualizations. They are getting documentation, which is both intuitive and highly informative with regard to installation procedures for their equipment.
This applies both to their own assembly department and if they want to place production with licensees.
