For VIGO Photonics, the Moicon Digital Twin replicated their actual factory and transformed it into a dynamic 3D-representation that was easily accessible from their web browser, saving them the time and expense of physically implementing changes to new prototypes and final products live directly in their factory floor.

Now, VIGO Photonics can design and simulate numerous production line situations, obtain reports, make revisions, and then put those changes into practice in their actual facility.

Why VIGO Photonics Chose Moicon

For VIGO Photonics projects, Moicon was chosen as the simulation tool for a number of reasons:

  • Innovative platform that can be utilized for everything from equipment evaluation and process optimization to model construction and layout planning;
  • Reports from many production scenarios allow to determine the best possible variant;
  • Calculating Production costs and return on investment for production conditions;
  • The simplicity of the workflows and ease of use for modeling production solutions and procedures;
  • The Moicon asset library's vast collection of parametric, reusable models speeds up the simulation setup process;
  • Uploading custom equipment assets quickly and easily so they may be utilized in simulations with behavior models for process analysis;
  • Enhanced visualization graphics and performance in viewport of the model makes it a medium for visual communication;
  • Access directly from the internet browser, no installation.
