Visual Components

Modular robot and automation simulation software which can integrate all Mitsubishi robots

Finnish simulation expert Visual Components has joined Mitsubishi Electric’s e-F@ctory Alliance to provide Robot and Automation simulation software. Inside the Visual Components Suite it is very easy to design the production machine, cell or line. Robots, parts, machines, housings, walls and all other required elements of a cell are included in component libraries. Inside the library for simulation there is also an animated human resource to compare a manual solution. It is also possible to import your own CAD files.

An image says more than a 1000 words

Visual Components not only offer an image, they offer a fully animated 3D PDF of the simulation which can be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader®. This means you are able to move through your application, turn by turn, zoom, fly and look behind the corner. The PDF is also small enough to share by email.

Easy Optimization

The 3D simulation enables you to optimize your production with:

* Capacity estimates
* Work in Progress (WIP)
* Bottleneck analysis
* Buffer size optimization
* Production strategy studies

A complete solution

For a complete solution Visual Components also offers an Add-on for PLC connectivity for FX, System Q and L Series. Testing and validating the PLC code in advance by connecting the I/O’s to the digital machines ensures that errors are eliminated in the design phase.
