We are proud to announce that SimX is now UK Master Representative of Simio. We would like to invite you to explore the unique modelling and simulation features that the full range of Simio products can provide by visiting Simio web site. A free preview event took place on 18/09/2012 at the VEC (Virtual Engineering Centre) premises in Daresbury Innovation Campus. More contents and videos on the exciting perspectives offered by Simio in virtual factory and digital manufacturing will be made available as we come up with a brand new web site very soon. Stay tuned!
Modelling and Simulation eXpertise
SimX (pronunciation: ʃɪɱɛks) is a consultancy and world-class research company specialising in modelling and simulation of Production Systems (including Advanced Robotics-based and Vision Systems), Resource Management and Process Planning in a wide variety of areas in the Manufacturing and Service Industry. We provide a cost effective service to UK and European companies by using leading edge technology in the fields of Digital Manufacturing, Virtual Factory and Process Simulation, whether this is in the form of consultancy, software supply or research projects. Throughout its activities SimX adheres to the manufuture paradigm, the new innovation policy for the future of manufacturing in Europe.
SimX has used its expertise in simulation to help clients simulate to a high degree of accuracy and realism, factory layouts, production process lines, work cells, a variety of robot types and related systems. As a result risks may be identified and eliminated, layouts optimised, costs saved and right-first-time outcomes achieved, all before any financial investment or commitment to physical implementation is made. Simulations produced by SimX allow the evaluation of numerous scenarios, thanks to the high level of parameterization of used models. Powerful 3D visualisation and animation together with well-structured data outputs greatly helps in communicating results also to non-technical, financial decisions makers. Latest SimX product developments in the field of lean process simulation (click here for more details) have extended the range of provided services from the traditional field of Manufacturing Simulation to other areas like Healthcare Simulation, at the base of the new NHS "lean thinking" paradigm. <SimX consultancy service>
SimX is committed to helping SME companies by providing affordable and leading edge software for component modelling and process simulation. As a small enterprise ourselves we understand the importance of low-priced, professional tools, yet able to provide accurate results with little programming effort. The software we sell is the software we also use to provide cost-effective consultancy < SimX software >.
SimX carries out a range of developments in robotic simulation, factory simulation, factory design, process planning and resource management, that is the foundations of PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) software. We view Research and Development as vital to company's business growth. This is reflected in SimX's stated mission to dedicate 30% of company's effort to R&D. Most part of our R&D projects are partially funded within UK TSB (Technology Strategy Board) and EU Frameworks, but we are also involved in commercially fully-funded R&D. < SimX R&D >
