Who we serve

Simumatik in Education

Simumatik aims to support two clear customer segments. The first are educational institutions, including teachers and students, that want to take advantage of digital models to learn in automation areas, like PLC programming, robotics, mechatronics or even basic electricity and pneumatic courses. The Simumatik Platform can be used as a complement to the actual course and also facilitates distance education and empowers creativity.

virtual commissioning

The second includes system integrators, OEMs and manufacturing companies that need the support of digital tools to increase their productivity and effectiveness. Our customers can develop and virtually deploy efficient and sustainable solutions, implement energy optimization, carry out operator training, and improve their control software using digital models. We offer an affordable solution that can be adapted to different customer segments and provide enough flexibility to solve many of the actual challenges in the industry.
