THE SECRETS OF SUCCESS
- Evaluate machine’s parameters to determine the best design and ensure filling quality
- Determine the pressure loss and filling behavior during the filling dynamics
- Simulate the machine process to adapt filling valves design
- Reduced number of prototypes by more than 20 percent
- Increased design accuracy
- Saved weeks in maintenance
Already, we have reduced the number of prototypes
by 20 percent.”
BSim is really fast and accurate in answering my questions,” says Pastrello.“I am very pleased with their contribution."
Simulation tools can make the difference between winning and losing business. I understand that not many of our competitors use such advanced tools; we are truly pioneering the use of simulation to
streamline the machine design process and it can make a significant difference competitively.”
R&D Engineering RONCHI MARIO
Customized solutions for packaging industry operators
RONCHI MARIO is a major Italian industrial machinery manufacturer, building around 85 machines a year and supplying packaging industry operators across a global market. RONCHI MARIO specializes in finding the specific solutions for solving any packaging industry operators’ requirement and building customized and reliable packaging equipment for chemical, cosmetic and food industries.
Its core businesses are both bottle filling and capping for liquid and high-viscous products such as shampoo and dishwasher detergent. Research and development (R&D) have always been at the heart of RONCHI MARIO’s strategy.
The RONCHI MARIO R&D department focuses on delivering the best customized solution for its customers to meet every specific requirement.
Machines built by RONCHI MARIO have very high production regimes (number of filled containers per minute); the filling speed is high and must be precise in terms of the quantity of fluid injected in the containers.
From an experimental process to a numerical approach to enhance pressure stability
“The bottle filling circuit is over-pressure; the pressure is higher than the atmosphere pressure,”
notes Pastrello. So, defining how to maintain this pressure as constant as possible is fundamental for RONCHI MARIO to deliver the best industrial machines to its customers.
“Before, we always tried to solve our problems by an experimental process without any direction. We tried to test a number of random choices before finding the correct one.”
Time saving and accurate simulation
This trial-and-error system was not precise enough to render results in an efficient manner, thereby costing the firm time and money.
In addition, if an industrial client had technical issues, someone from RONCHI MARIO used to go directly to the client’s location to make modifications on the machine.
The R&D team sought a solution that would enable a specific pressure and flow rate of fluid through the piping in order to maintain a constant stream of fluid to the filling valves.
After a thorough selection process, RONCHI MARIO chose Simcenter™ Amesim software.
The RONCHI MARIO R&D department works in close collaboration with Bsim, a Siemens PLM Software partner, to adapt and get familiar with Simcenter Amesim
Go beyond, be innovative
Due to the highly accurate simulation of Simcenter Amesim, RONCHI MARIO has measurably reduced the number of prototypes it typically produces per project.
Simulation enables the team to predict every machine behavior and determine the best design before prototype production.
