Simulation @ Rettig

Rettig, Europe’s largest manufacturer of domestic heating systems, was looking for a way to improve the synchronisation of two consecutive production lines. When an initial design using buffering proved not to be cost-effective we developed an innovative mechanical concept with three levels.

Actemium created a simulation of the entire buffer to show how the system operated and how it could be optimised.

  • Lay-out proposal
  • 3D simulation of buffer functionality
  • Optimisation of the algorithm for buffer storage
