Overview:
Kosme produces a full range of turnkey filling, labeling, capping, packaging and conveying solutions for beverage products including soft drinks, water, beer, wine, and spirits, as well as personal care products.
Challenge:
In developing custom solutions for customers, Kosme is frequently asked to develop machines that will operate faster and more reliably than their predecessors. Increasing the speed of machines raises inertial loads, creating the potential for vibration and resonances that could substantially reduce the life of the machines and cause breakdowns. In the past, Kosme engineers used hand calculations to estimate the performance of components and built physical prototypes to evaluate system performance. Problems were frequently discovered during the prototype stage. These problems often required many iterations of revisiting the design and modifying and re-testing the prototype.
Solution:
MSC Nastran and Adams simulation software made it possible for Kosme to design, optimize and visualize packaging machines prior to the prototype stage. The result is that the company is able to engineer substantial performance improvements while getting the design right the first time.
Benefits:
Simulation makes it possible for Kosme to design, optimize and visualize packaging machines prior to the prototype stage. The result is that the company is able to engineer substantial performance improvements while getting the design right the first time.
  • Increase the processing speed of bottling machines by 50%
  • Reduction of vibration levels
  • Reduction of mass of critical moving components by 20% to 30% while reducing stress levels.
