When SOMIC set out to build its high-performance coffee capsule packaging machine with 76 motion axes, they designed and engineered the machine without so much as lifting a screwdriver. Instead, they used a digital twin, which simulated the real performance of the machine. A smart Schneider Electric controller and EcoStruxure™ Machine Expert allowed them to work virtually for added flexibility.
For safe and speedy machine diagnosis and maintenance, SOMIC uses EcoStruxure™ Augmented Operator Advisor, Schneider Electric's augmented reality application. It saves time by enabling operators to open the machine's cabinet doors virtually, using a mobile tool, rather than having to do it manually. They can also identify and resolve issues virtually, without having to physically work on dangerous machines.
