Application presented is a CAD/CAE based project of an automatic packaging machine. The project has been developed with ADAMS, starting from a 3D model from Solid Designer and defined in SD/Adams, performing kinematics analysis in order to verify machine movements, and dynamic analysis for sizing actuators in a properly way.
The model created can be considered a virtual “test-bed” of the analysed machine, because, thanks to a complete parameterisation of the model, it’s possible the evaluation of the best system configuration in order to improve production performances.
The “test-bed” developed is completed with a motion laws library, allowing to evaluate in a immediate way which is the type of motion that minimise the engine torque.
