Digital Manufacturing

This is the use of computer simulation for the design, testing and programming of automation systems. This technology has been around for many years but it is only with recent advances in computer technology that it has really become an important tool. The interfaces to CAD and the speed with which alternative strategies can be tried allows far better system designs to be achieved in a fraction of the time previously taken. We have been granted permission to reproduce a recent report on the benefits from the use of these systems here.
