DELMIA industrial engineering enables innovation and efficiency by planning, simulating, and modelling global operations in a single platform. Users can virtual validate value networks, factory layouts, transportation plans, process plans, logistics plans and workforce plans to quickly respond to the competition or new market opportunities. As well as simulating and validating manufacturing processes before the physical plant or production line even exists.
DELMIA offers industry solutions in relation to:
Process Engineering helps create and optimise build-to-order and lean production manufacturing systems. Manufacturing Engineers and Project Managers can accelerate new product and variant introduction planning, reduce product and resource physical prototypes with 4D simulation, and maximize space and resource utilization to increase factory performance and safety. With process engineering can you create your MBOM, Process plan, work instructions and resource structure.
DELMIA Manufacturing Item Definition application is used to consume the EBOM and create an MBOM (a Manufacturing Bill of Material) that meets the requirement of Process and Industrial Engineers. The MBOM is linked to the EBOM through scope links. These links ensure the EBOM and MBOM remain in-sync with each other.
DELMIA Process Planning application allows Process Engineers to author manufacturing systems, manage system structures, balance manufactured items between systems and balance operations between systems. Through scope links between the Process Plan and MBOM ensure that the Process Plan and MBOM remain in-sync with each other.
DELMIA equipment allocation application allows the resource scope on which the Process Plan can be executed, to balance the production line of operations with the available resource (shopfloor workers, machine tools, hand tools). Through scope links between the Process Plan and the Resource structure ensure the Resource structure and Process Plan remain in-sync with each other.
Work Instruction Designer role has powerful, easy-to-use features to detail and document any process from simple assembly prototyping to complex manufacturing or maintenance processes using the Work Instructions application. Easily accessible through the 3DExperience platform, it allows operators to always have access to the latest work instructions.
DELMIA Additive Manufacturing drives manufacturing innovation and efficiency with tools to support planning, simulating and programming of additive manufacturing processes. The solutions enable manufacturers to virtually experience, validate, and optimise their additive manufacturing projects, from the nesting of parts, to engineering the process, to the validation of the process using physics-based simulation
Delmia additive manufacturing solution supports two processes:
The solution allows users to generate scanned paths based on the 3D geometry and apply appropriate strategies to add material from machine tools or robots equipped with a laser. The program will be generated under a specific neutral format that will be translated for the machine by post processors. It provides a full suite of powerful tools for designing and validating components to support production engineering.
The DELMIA solution provides a 3D interactive environment that enables Manufacturing Engineers to optimise powder bed fusion manufacturing techniques. Making it easy for Engineers to setup, program, analyse, and re-use additive manufacturing processes.
Users can create diverse support structures with or without perforation, fragmentation, attachments to stabilise the part, or use to recognise zones, then add supports where needed automatically. Users can generate scanned paths based on the 3D geometry and apply appropriate strategies to control quality variables for both parts and supports for printers using one or several lasers. The build plate with parts and supports to be printed can be output in 3MF, AMF and STL formats.
DELMIA Fabrication helps NC programmers to plan, detail, simulate and optimise their machining activities. Through tight integration of machine simulation with toolpath definition, NC programmers can identify and solve problems at earlier stages of the NC programming level. They can save time and optimise processes by linking engineering and manufacturing knowledge in the context of the machine simulation to increase machining quality and performance, reduce scrap and rework and shorten the full manufacturing process.
DELMIA Robotics enables robot programmers to simulate and validate robot tasks. Perform reachability studies, interlock analysis and offline robot teaching to deliver optimised robotics programs to the shop floor. Robot programmers can also create, simulate and validate robots in the context of all manufacturing environments to optimise efficiency.
DELMIA Virtual Factory provides solutions for the creation and simulation of a 3D digital twin of a factory. To perform factory flow simulation analyses in order to optimise material flows and improve productivity. Connect your work cells to a PLC and perform a “virtual commissioning” of your work cell or line. Delmia virtual factory consists of three distinct areas – equipment design, plant layout and factory flow.
The solution provides users with a full suite of powerful tools for designing and validating machines and mechanisms to support production engineering at all levels of the enterprise. Users can optimise and validate all the mechanical devices used in a manufacturing setting, from simple clamps to NC machine tools and complex robots, even the most complex milling, turning and mill-turn machines. Users can define axis-motion parameters including travel limits, acceleration, home positions, and speeds. Once a model is validated and saved to a resource catalog, it can be re-used by planners, programmers, and simulation engineers in a virtual factory context.
DELMIA Plant Layout gives manufacturing planners and facility planners advanced tools for factory resource layout in a realistic virtual environment to define and validate shop floor layouts. The simplified layout tools let users position, align, and snap layout objects quickly and includes a catalog of parametric resources such as conveyors, shelving, tables, and containers. Existing 2D factory drawings and be snapped to the 2D drawings to quickly realize the 3D layout.
DELMIA factory flow allows users to design factory layouts, and define & validate the behaviour of a station, a line or a complete plant in the 3DExperience platform. They see their systems in 3D as they design them. They can assess and fine-tune the performance of production systems, conducting feasibility and performance studies. With the platform you can Identify bottlenecks early in the planning process and maximise production rates with alternate routings. They can optimise resource positioning thanks to precise 3D simulations.
Using lifelike manikins DELMIA Ergonomics allows users to find ergonomic problems early in the virtual world to assess equipment design, improving workers’ well-being, reducing operator fatigue and discomfort, costs, and increase productivity in the real world.
