Rockwell and ANSYS form strategic partnership

22 November 2019

A new strategic partnership between Rockwell Automation and ANSYS aims to help customers develop simulation-based digital twins of products, processes or manufacturing.

Historically manufacturers would dedicate a great deal of time and money to develop and test physical product prototypes. It is now possible to design and test through simulation to accelerate development and analysis, improving product quality and reducing testing time across their organisation.

Commenting on the partnership, Blake Moret, chairman and CEO at Rockwell Automation, said: “This collaboration will help us better serve customers, who can make better business decisions to save money and time because of their access to simulation-based digital twins in their manufacturing process.”

Co-innovation between Rockwell Automation and ANSYS enables customers to benefit through the entire digital thread. Once a machine or production line is running, manufacturers can create a digital twin of their manufacturing process to create and test virtual ‚what-if‘ scenarios. 

For example, by using runtime models generated from ANSYS Twin Builder, industrial companies can become more agility and minimise risk. 
Ajei Gopal, president and CEO at ANSYS, said: “This partnership is part of our open ecosystem philosophy, which gives our customers the ability to make the best business and technology decisions for their organisations. By combining Rockwell Automation’s portfolio of industrial solutions with ANSYS’ simulation solutions, we will make it easier for industrial companies to build, validate and deploy digital twins. Simulation-based digital twins optimise factory operations, saving money by reducing unplanned downtime and enable engineers to test solutions virtually before doing physical repairs.”
