The simulation of pneumatic systems helps improve your understanding of complex relationships and interactions within the system and raises awareness of optimization potential

Modeling and simulation of pneumatic components and systems

Pneumatic systems drive industrial operations with swift and precise motion control. However, their complexity poses challenges to traditional design methods. Simulation software empowers engineers to analyze systems comprehensively, optimizing performance and efficiency, and unlocking insights for enhanced performance and a competitive edge.

Why Simulate Pneumatic Systems?


Find the Best Components for your System

Use dynamic system modeling to find the optimal dimensions of your pneumatic components. Simulate the system with components from different potential suppliers to compare their performance and energy efficiency.



Expand Early-Stage Design Testing

Find issues with the design earlier in the design process when problems are still cheaper and easier to fix. Reduce the number of physical prototypes required.


Virtually Test your Control Systems

From the model determine the system characteristics and start controller development earlier. Test control units using the model as a virtual plant with software-in-the-loop or hardware-in-the-loop testing.

Fast and economical handling of workpieces through pneumatic simulation

In automation technology, pneumatic actuators enable high processing speeds. At the same time, pneumatic systems are very economical and robust low-weight solutions. They are frequently used for loading, unloading and positioning workpieces. For best results, it is crucial to find the perfect combination between electrical controls, pneumatic actuators and mechanical components. The objective is to design inexpensive, high-speed, high-precision systems with great energy efficiency. Virtual commissioning of the machines allows you to run reliable functional tests before the machine is even built.

Compressed Air System Reservoir Charging


The model shows the compressed air system of a commercial vehicle. The model can be used to analyze the charging time and power requirements for different types and sizes of compressor and reservoirs. The circuit protection valve distributes the compressed air to several circuits. Depending on the internal layout the circuits will be filled in parallel or serial order. Check valves and charging valves avoid or allow a backflow from one circuit to the previous circuit. The sizes of compressor and reservoirs define the time for filling an empty system with compressed air up to the minimum pressure level required for safe operation of the vehicle.
