The commercial value of Digital Twins


The Digital Twin has given us insights around the positioning of our nozzles and into the drying process, but we were actually too late to see the real value in the development process. Because we can let our customers experience how their new machine will work, it inspires confidence and the Digital Twin also has a commercial value. An extra brand awareness.

PLC System for Multi-Axle Harvesting Machine Using Model-Based Design

Vintecc, partner of Mathworks, redesigned and built a harvesting machine with a highly customized architecture. With a 780hp engine driving three independent rear axles and two independent wheels on the front axle, the harvester is capable of collecting and hauling 100 tons of produce in a single load.

Vintecc designed and implemented the control system for the entire harvester, including the powertrain, collector, and all other mechanical and hydraulic components, using Simulink® and Model-Based Design.

How LVD saves time and money by using simulation expertise of Vintecc

LVD is named after its founding fathers, Jacques Lefebvre, Marc Vanneste and Robert Dewulf. Established in the 1950s, LVD is a leading manufacturer of sheet metalworking equipment, including laser cutting systems, punch presses, press brakes, guillotine shears and automation systems, integrated to and supported by its CADMAN® software suite. Load-Assist (LA) is one of their automation systems that can be added to a laser cutting system in order to increase productivity.

The Load-Assist automatically loads material and, during unmanned production, unloads cut sheets to an unloading station or a conveyor. This solution offers a highly reliable, cost-effective automated process without operator intervention. Solid software is required for this automated handling.

Rapid prototyping of an e-driveline at MOLcy

MOLcy, located in Staden, BE, distinguishes itself as a company that does not shy away from technical challenges: more than 400 motivated members are cooperating together for the development of a high quality range of products. The company produces a range of trailers, port equipment, rail equipment, waste systems and special trucks.
