Optimal material flow planning in presses
Press Line Simulation (PLS)
Press Line Simulation from Siemens is an innovative simulation software for the comprehensive analysis and optimization of motion control as well as the interaction of press, transfer, and feed system. Digital mapping of the entire system enables precise material flow planning. All operations can be prepared in advance, which makes it possible to optimize the entire material flow at an early planning stage. A standardized communication interface between the high-end motion control system SIMOTION and PLS enables the direct transmission of the simulation results to the machine – with no production interruption or machine shutdown.
Get to production operations fasterPress Line Simulation (PLS) simulates the material flow through an entire press line using the same parameters as the real press. The results can be taken over 1:1 in the real press.
Press Line Simulation supports various tasks in the press process – for instance, material flow planning, collision planning, device design, tool verification, and press setup. The interface to the high-end motion control system SIMOTION makes it easy to transfer data to the real press. With Press Line Simulation in combination with the Siemens solutions for servo presses and press handling, you can achieve a thoroughly optimized solution that enables maximum material flow speeds.
Simply faster press commissioning
Press Line Simulation from Siemens is an innovative software tool for the comprehensive programming, analysis, and simulation of multistage presses. The digital simulation of the entire sheet-metal stamping process permits preplanning and virtual optimization of all processes at the start of the planning phase.
Collision planning and material planning with professional support
The optimization of a press line using simulation requires in-depth expertise. That’s why Siemens experts from the fields of metal forming, metal molds, and PLM software help you to select the optimal PLS license options.
