More and more component manufacturers are looking for solutions to providing certified digital twins of their hardware products and thus enabling their customers to carrying out virtual commissioning of their automation solutions. With TwinStore (www.twinstore.de), this becomes reality: Component models that map the behavior of real hardware in terms of interfaces, parameters and behavioral characteristics are provided via the TwinStore platform for digital engineering. The simulation model of the customer-specific automation solution can be seamlessly configured in the virtual commissioning tool from the TwinStore libraries. The libraries include robot and gripper systems, drive and conveyor technology and even sensor components. The availability of a digital twin is becoming a decisive sales feature of a component manufacturer and reduces the modeling times for machine and plant manufacturers.
