Using digital twins to optimize a design project
ProAnalytics is helping FMP Technology GmbH to design better products with the help of digital twins. The company is designing dryers, nozzles and slot dies to be used in industrial coating processes. By taking advantage of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations we can model the air flow inside the dryer already before building an actual prototype of the dryer. With the simulation we can make sure that the application and drying of the coating material will happen uniformly across the entire substrate surface.
