  • Associated product(s)
To lower risks and effort during the phase of conceptioning a maschine, digitalization offers a variants of software. One example is a physical and mechanical model of a maschine. This application example describes how to select a motor with the help of NX Mechatronics Concept Designer and SIZER.

In the process of developing a machine, motor selection is one required step. With NX MCD (Mechatronics Concept Designer), it is possible to do motor selection in addition to the software SIZER. Due to the kinematic design, including mechanics and physics simulation in MCD, it’s possible to export the simulation result to SIZER to do a further selection. Motor sizing analysis of the virtual model can be performed using custom applications to ensure proper performance and reduce over-engineering.
