simulate and save

Our simulation to study bottle behaviour during transport and torque application eliminated prototyping and resulted in 25% cost savings for a US FMCG customer.

Flex Star Wheel for a Fast Moving Consumer Goods Customer

Challenge

Develop simulation model for Flex Star Wheel to study bottle behavior during transport and torque application

Approach

Setup CAD models – Star wheel plates and back guide
Develop simulation model for Transport scenario
Develop simulation model for top load and torque application
Develop simulation model for combined transport and top load + torque
Run scenarios by changing process variables

Technical Impact

Full report of process variables, simulation results, sensitivities
Virtual model, able to run different scenarios
Simulation results provide feedback to design team

Business Impact

25% cost savings (eliminated prototyping)
