Machine design software generates open source Mechatronics program code
I recently attended the introduction and a demonstration of Siemens Mechatronics Concept Designer™ software at IMTS on September 14, 2010. Siemens Mechatronics Concept Designer™ software is a game changer for companies that develop and implement any type of machine tools and production machines. Mechatronics Concept Designer provides tools that enable the entire development team to collaborate more effectively to design, simulate, and build a complete machine including Mechatronics. This method provides the opportunity to identify and easily correct issues early, before they become costly problems. To implement a design, Mechatronics Concept Designer generates the control application code in the PLCopen XML standard format to create programs for controllers.
