Trend topic: Manufacturing digitalization

Basic: Virtual images of machines and control systems

Not always identical: digital twins of machine tools

In the light of increasing digitalization, it is important to understand that digital twins are not always the same. The example of a machine tool illustrates that machine operators and machine builders need different virtual images to map their specific requirements. 

There are two very different application scenarios for digital twins in the lifecycle of machine tools: One is determined by the requirements of the machine builder, and involves application during the design, engineering, commissioning, maintenance, and servicing of machines. The second application scenario concerns the machine tool operation, particularly the creation and verification of reliable CNC programs. It is important to be aware of and understand these differences when digitalizing production and purchasing new machines. For this, it helps to be familiar with the basics of how digital twins are designed.
