Industrial Automation and Machinery

Design embedded controls, AI algorithms, and run automatic tests

The rise of the smart industry with cutting-edge industrial equipment and smart factories is causing a shift in the traditional manufacturing landscape. The machines used in modern production and the equipment used in modern material handling are now highly integrated mechatronic systems with a considerable amount of embedded software. Industrial Automation and Machinery engineers can choose from various techniques and methods to address the increasing complexity of modern production equipment and the demands for higher flexibility.

MATLAB, Simulink, COMSOL Multiphysics, and Speedgoat can help engineers build improved and optimized equipment for flexibility, dependability, and efficiency to reach the expected level of functionality and quality.

Engineers use our products to:

  • Verify and optimize designs for the best performance
  • Develop virtual prototypes and digital twins
  • Couple electromagnetics with heat transfer, structural mechanics, fluid flow, and other physical phenomena
  • Test different geometries, thermocouple configurations, and material selection
  • Build, solve, and post-process models
  • Perform cosimulation with Simulink.
  • Evaluate EMI/EMC considerations and thermal management of airborne electronic equipment
  • Build simulation apps
