Batenburg has a lot of expertise when it comes to simulation solutions, both in machine construction and process control.

We use simulations to work even more efficiently, to increase the quality of the software and to reduce risks in complex processes. Batenburg Techniek regularly uses simulations for the design, validation and testing of machines and systems. Working with simulations is also a given for training and communication purposes.

Some simulation methods are simple, such as input/output (I/O) simulations. Others are quite complex: we then use physical models for maximum accuracy. With a HoloLens application, we can simulate and test, without the physical machine being present. This saves a lot of time and reduces the chance of errors. We can also make a virtual copy of the real, physical machine and link it to the real controller. In industry 4.0, this is referred to as a “digital twin”. With such a twin you test changes virtually before they are implemented on the machine. This way, the machine can be put into use with software that has already been tested. A big advantage!

A process simulator makes it easier for software engineers to test larger process components. The simulators of Batenburg Techniek actually intervene in the I/O. As a result, no modifications to the control software are required and the simulator can simply be connected to the business processes.

We also use the simulator for internals tests and the FAT. This means that new software can be commissioned significantly faster. Using the simulator as an operator training system allows a factory to practice the processes in advance with the new controller and HMI. This significantly reduces the likelihood of errors. For operators, this is the perfect preparation for the new control system!
