Dec. 6, 2017 - Andritz Separation, part of international technology group Andritz, has developed a new computer-assisted tool for operator training that aims to help maximize machine and process performance with minimal training time.

Described as a sophisticated solution, Andritz SmartSIM aims to help users efficiently implement new machine control systems and optimize new operator training. It is available for various models of solid/liquid separation machines and systems with a Metris addIQ control system. According to the company, the benefits of Andritz SmartSIM training are reduced downtimes because there are fewer operating errors and lower maintenance costs due to operators being highly trained.

The solution includes a computer-assisted classroom training course, which can be used at any time without affecting actual plant operation. Using the original operating interface, trainees have the opportunity to control a digital twin of the machine, including the individual parameters of production operations. In the course of the training, participants learn – with on-site support from Andritz – how to run the machine, respond to alarm situations, and improve the performance of the machine or the process. The goal is that at the end of the training course, every operator will be able to respond to real-life operating challenges and achieve certification level.
