Virtual process optimization of painting systems via AFOTEK Paint
3D real time simulations identify flaws early on and optimize the system throughput.
AFOTEK Paint shows the material flow of the painting system virtually in 3D via real time simulation to monitor and optimize various system and process scenarios. Moreover, all up- and downstream processes of the system can be integrated into the simulation, such as upstream assembly lines. This enables the system operator to define and optimize the material flow as well as the output of the painting system or the total plant prior to production start.
AFOTEK Paint within the company process.
AFOTEK Paint is a tool, which is adapted to the needs of the system operator and which allows the simulation of the material flow in different forms (modules).
Module overview AFOTEK Paint.
The module AFOTEK real time simulation enables the virtual simulation and optimization of the system to virtually simulate, test and optimize various scenarios prior to system realization. Bottlenecks and system throughput can already be identified and optimized during planning phase. Moreover, the module AFOTEK plant planning allows the integration of the total plant into the simulation, including all up- and downstream processes, like upstream assembly lines or high bay warehouses. That way “What if” scenarios and best practice solutions can be identified to optimize not only the processes of the painting system itself but also the total plant. Both modules can be expanded by the module AFOTEK Energy. Within the simulation, this module can detect energy and gas expenses of the painting system to consider in detail heat losses, energy consumptions and thus the operation costs of the system in the context of different scenarios and to optimize them during system design.
