Abstract

This paper presents the process to virtualise a NC sheet metal punching machine. The results show that the Digital Twin manages to simulate the basic behaviour of the actual sheet metal machine: movements, machining operations and connectivity with robotic arms. The paper concludes with the necessity of going deeper in the virtualisation of the sheet metal machining process, by adding more realistic physical behaviour (heat transfer, accelerations,...) and connecting the Digital Twin with real mechanical parts under new simulation tools.
