Not being limited to metal (or a few standard plastics) opens up a much wider range of design options for engineering and design teams. They can think in more creative ways about complex geometry, performance in harsh environments, shielding considerations etc.
This approach is superior to standard molding procedures because of the high level of scientific control utilized through upfront Design of Experiments (DoE), flow analysis, process monitoring, and quality control that can quickly detect and correct any process variations.
Emulate3D software helps you model and test your AMHS solutions rapidly. Use Demo3D to create running models quickly, then generate videos, stills, or view the models in virtual reality at the click of a button. Sim3D enables you to carry out experimental test runs to select optimal solutions and the most robust operating strategy, and Emulate3D Controls Testing is the best way to debug your PLCs offline, and off the project's critical path. Connect to major PLCs, import CAD, and plug into HTC Vive and Oculus Rift to produce awesome models!
