Auburn Hills, MI., USA, January 14, 2008 -- Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Trompeter Enterprises (Sterling Heights, Michigan), a specialist in automated robotic simulation and an Automation Welding Alliance company, has selected the DELMIA robotic simulation tool for validation of sophisticated automation systems.
“We work with a significant number of Tier One suppliers who are designing and installing automated assembly systems for the automotive OEMs,” said Matt Trompeter, president, Trompeter Enterprises. “Without simulations to validate and improve the system designs up front, prior to production, it would take months to install a new system and our customers could never meet their delivery schedule. By verifying everything in a virtual world, we can get equipment up and running in time frames that don’t adversely impact production.”
The DELMIA robotic solution provides simulation for modeling and off-line programming of complex multi-device robotic workcells. The spot welding capability offers specialized tools that support both traditional and fixed TCP spot welding applications. Included with the spot welding option is a fully functional tooling interface for the construction and simulation of complex tooling and fixture device clamps. Collision-free robot trajectories can be automatically determined, and numerous optimization features can be used to reduce process cycle times. The solution helps to reduce cost, design and manufacturing time, and accelerate time-to-market.
Trompeter Enterprises is using the tool on a current project to validate a newly automated welding and assembly workcell. Where there were previously eight operators, the new system is designed to include ten robots and two operators. With the DELMIA solution, Trompeter has been able to identify potential tooling collisions or robotic arm reach issues, driving changes that improve the system design while still in a virtual mode. Additionally, once the virtual simulation is complete, Trompeter can reference the data for future analysis and create “what if” scenarios at minimal cost and with no downtime.
Trompeter Enterprises is part of the Automation Welding Alliance (AWA), a consortium of five companies formed to be a "one-stop" resource for automation system programming/debugging, welding, panel build, simulations, design and training for pressroom or welding and assembly manufacturing. The AWA is holding an open house at 44440 Phoenix Drive, Sterling Heights, Mich., on January 23, 2008 from 9:00 am until 7:00 pm to demonstrate its capability to existing and prospective customers.
Trompeter Enterprises specializes in the development of Automated Robotic Simulations, providing customers with the ability to evaluate and validate all areas of their process before design and/or build. For more information, visit www.trompeterenterprises.com
