Autotech invests further in robotic simulation

Control systems specialist, Autotech Controls Ltd, has expanded its robotic simulation and virtual manufacturing services with an investment of approximately £375,000 in new software and hardware.

With a total of seven Tecnomatix Robcad packages and one Process Simulate seat, Autotech now has greater production simulation capacity than any other Siemens Solution Partner in the UK.

Commented Andrew Robinson, Autotech’s Managing Director, “Since we first invested in Robcad, we have used this software intensively in projects for four of Jaguar Land Rover’s Tier 1 suppliers – FFT EDAG Produktionssysteme , ABB, Laepple and VDL Steelweld – involving the development and implementation of automated production lines at both Halewood and Castle Bromwich. The success of all these projects and the level of new business we are currently experiencing mean that we are convinced that this investment will pay off.”

The software has been purchased from Majenta PLM Ltd, one of Europe’s leading product development and manufacturing IT providers. Part of the Siemens PLM Software family, Robcad and Process Simulate are advanced software packages that enable the design, simulation, optimisation, analysis and off-line programming of multi-device robotic and automated production systems. Explained Simon Ordish, Sales Manager for Majenta, “ Whether clients require brand-new manufacturing systems or mid-cycle changes to existing production lines, these software tools ensure a seamless link between CAD design and the production environment, allowing automation concepts to be proven fully before investment. The result is lower manufacturing costs, improved production quality, the eradication of costly design errors and accelerated time-to-market.”

Added Andrew Robinson, Autotech MD, “We are delighted that, due to our expertise and experience, Autotech have been commended by Majenta PLM as experts in Robcad. ”
