How the visualization has changed by Digital Twin Technology
A digital twin is a virtual representation of a product. The use of 3D modelling to create a digital companion is one example of digital twin. This is another evolution of IoT which helps the manufacturing industry to save cost and time. This concept is becoming a part of the productivity improvement and decision making process.
Digital twins uses data from sensors installed on physical objects to represent their near real-time status, working condition or position. This concept idealizes CAD (Computer Assisted Design) and CAE (Computer Assisted Engineering) simulation.
The CEO of GE professed that digital twin technology will optimize the machinery and human healthcare. A software model of a physical entity will make it possible to manage systems more precisely by optimizing the operations of industrial machines.
How does it work
These digital twins extract data from sensors that are monitoring the performance of the physical product and then use algorithms that offer continuous insight and support reasonable projections about the future depending on its dynamic model respond technique.
By the use of sensors, the user can know if the machine is about to fail or if it malfunctions. This saves a lot of time and cost of maintenance especially if you are talking about big machines here. To sum up, the basic concept of the digital twin model is to build rich digital information for virtual products
Where can digital twin technology be used
- G.E implemented digital twin technology for a digital representation of almost every GE machine including jet engines, locomotives and turbines.
- This technology is useful for the manufacturing businesses that look forward to minimize the labor and cost.
- It is useful for giving the customers the benefit of virtual shopping. The online stores can utilize this technology for lucrative benefits.
- Consumer electronics or medical device manufacturers, travel and hospitality companies, online service providers can be majorly benefited by implementing this technology.
P.S — It is the practical aspect that makes this technology a success, LetsNurture is thriving to apply the same concept for clients who want to widen their business perspective by indulging IoT solutions to offer the customers a variety of connected products and services.
