DEMO – Application Examples Digital Twin of a Transport Conveyor – TIA Portal, PLCSIM Advanced and NX MCD


Virtual commissioning of a provided virtual 3D sorting plant model with the TIA Portal, PLCSIM Advanced and NX MCD (Mechatronics Concept Designer).


Teaching the  complex  interactions of  Industrie 4.0 in vocational training  is placing new demands on teachers and trainers, and requires modern teaching concepts. The Digital Twin can support training with a wide range of applications as a digital image of industry 4.0 machines. An application example is presented by means of a video which demonstrates the commissioning of a digital twin of a transport system in interaction with a virtual automation system.

Here are some examples of skills that can be taught in courses with the concept of the digital twin:

  • Implementation of the design of a simple mechatronic system in NX
  • Dynamization of a static system in NX MCD
  • Development of the control and HMI program of a system with the TIA Portal
  • Virtual commissioning of the dynamic system and the automation program
  • Expansion and optimization as well as troubleshooting and fault rectification by means of a digital twin
