Lemken GmbH & Co KG: simulation in plant engineering

[us_page_title description=”1″ font_size=”1.8rem” inline=”1″]

Agricultural machine manufacturer LEMKEN uses simulation for plant planning

The company LEMKEN is an international manufacturer of agricultural equipment for soil cultivation, sowing and plant protection. The family-owned company employs more than 1,100 people worldwide. With SimPlan’s simulation experts, the planning of a new sandblasting plant is ensured and several layout alternatives can be evaluated.

  • efficient connection of a new sandblasting plant to the existing system and an increase in the total production volume
  • analysis of different layout variants and strategies to ensure an ideal run-out to the weekend and start-up to the start of production after the weekend
  • examination of different strategies for using the loading and unloading station:
    • which products should be loaded or and unloaded at which station?
    • Does inserting buffer locations in front of a station improve is charging performance?
    • Will the quantity increase make an additional charging station necessary?
  • Software used: Plant Simulation
  • use of power & free blocks in plant simulation 10.1
  • intensive use of license-free pack & go models, designed with user-friendly buttons and selection lists
  • determining the best layout alternatives and the expected throughput
  • defining the appropriate number of hitches
  • need for further loading and unloading stations confirmed
