Known for its holistic, advanced solutions in the field of modeling, simulation, analysis and virtual testing of complete technical systems, ITI showcases the latest version of its standard software SimulationX. In presentations and video animations visitors will experience live demonstrations of plant development in a process-integrated, resource-efficient way using virtual prototypes. Further highlights of the exhibitions will be the overall system development, functional system design, modeling and simulation as well as virtual test.

ITI exhibition highlight at the bauma 2010: Overall system simulation

For 20 years ITI has been working on the comprehensive modeling, simulation and evaluation of modern technical systems - an approach that becomes more and more popular in the development of progressive construction machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment. ITI software and engineering services have been established in the manufacture of construction machinery and in mechanical engineering for many years working with a range of OEM's including CNH, CRF, Liebherr, Komatsu, Putzmeister, and Manitowoc.

At ITI's stand at bauma 2010 visitors can see for themselves the benefits of using SimulationX in system development. By means of industry-specific models, the audience experiences live that within SimulationX the optimal adaptation of different sub-systems of mechanics, drive, hydraulics, and controls is a breeze already in the pre-development stage. Visitors will learn how to develop energy-efficient systems using SimulationX 3.3 - systems, that consider fuel-saving and energy-saving drives, are flexible, cost-saving and provide a high power density.

Apart from this, experienced ITI engineers will show how to

? test the connection to control units including complete operating safety and functional reliability for newly developed electro-hydraulic controls,

? dimension valves, pumps and other components in an application-oriented way,

? develop active and passive systems for the suppression of oscillation in real bearings,

? continuously provide models for cost-saving variant studies through all departments from construction over test and engineering through to production.

Finally, visitors can gain exclusive insight in the latest development result of current joint research projects as well as in methods and tools for the determination and evaluation of emission-saving and energy-saving drives.

ITI exhibition highlights at the Hannover trade show 2010: Functional system design, modeling and simulations as well as virtual testing

With this year's Hannover trade show ITI will be present at the leading German industry fair for 17 years in series. Showcasing in the "Digital Factory", ITI will present its holistic solutions for modeling, simulation and evaluation of modern engineering systems. Thereby, the focus is not only on using visualizations, animations and virtual reality in the development of mechatronical systems. Rather, ITI presents itself as an independent solution provider for ?Functional Mock-Up" and ?Virtual Testing" - solutions, that prove the fact that sound evaluations of functional and dynamic behavior of the overall plant become possible very early in the design process. Using SimulationX 3.3 dynamic modeling goes far beyond the possibilities of a Digital Mock-Up.

ITI software and services have been established across all core industries for modern technologies starting from automated manufacturing and power engineering over planning of power stations through to the design of hybrid drive systems and the construction of electrical motors. By means of industry-specific models visitors will learn more about the benefits and functionality of SimulationX. Experienced ITI engineers will demonstrate how to best adopt sub systems of mechanics, power transmission, hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics, magnetics and controls in pre-development using the SimulationX software platform. Another topic is virtual start-up, where also dynamic effects both, in components and the overall plant are considered. Apart from this, presentations will includes examples for the

? execution of model-based system development,

? development of energy-efficient systems,

? consideration of emission-saving and energy-saving drives

? supply of virtual sub models and system models for cost-saving variant studies across all departments from construction over test and engineering through to production

Finally, visitors get an exclusive insight into how to best connect and integrate the latest SimulationX version into CAD systems as well as virtual and experimental test systems.

?To visualize and evaluate complex, mechatronics functions by means of physical modeling and simulation has always been the success strategy of ITI's one-stop solutions. We want to show the visitors the possibilities that can be achieved in 2010 by using modern software tools and the savings to be realized in exploiting the potential of virtual functional system design," comments Jens O. Schindler, ITI Managing Director, on the two parallel exhibitions.

At the Hannover trade show 2010 ITI will showcase in the Digital Factory in hall 17, stand G56. At the bauma 2010 the company will exhibit in hall C4, stand 410. ###
