Simulation software: maximize the performance of your press automation

Strothmann offers StroCon PL and OpenLoop, two simulation systems for press automation. StroCon PL is a controller for offline programming of paths for press linking - both in new tandem lines and in retrofitting projects. Together with specialized 3D simulation tools, this software can significantly increase system performance. Our OpenLoop software is capable of simulating our flexible solutions for press automation and, in particular, hot forming systems. Offline programming and collision analysis can once again achieve significant improvements in output and set-up times.

Overview software

StroCon PL 
StroCon PL 

With StroCon PL, path curves for press linking can be programmed offline and StroCon PL makes it possible to program and optimize paths for press linking offline. When combined with the 3D simulation tool, it can generate transfer movements that can then be analyzed for maximum performance and the absence of collisions. This increases the press line output while simultaneously reducing set-up times.
