Continuous sandwich panel line

Hi! I am new to the Plant Simulator and I need it to simulate a production line of continuous sandwich panels.


The thing is that the MUs are actually 2 metal rolls (the upper and lower ) and they are of continuous feed throughout the 90% of the process, until they be cut in pieces.


Is there any chance to simulate this non-stop feed of material, in meters/minute?
Processing times, for every single proc, are regulated from that predetermined rate m/m.
I have made a basic model, but I can place only 2 additional objects, as it is student version.


The production line, that i want to simulate looks like this:

You can use the fluids library to model the continous parts of your line.

Starting from 12.2 you have an deportioner. This object you can use to model the coils and the continous consumption of material. You need to calculate a mass-stream for your materials (e.g. cm³/s --> l/s). The compounding of the materials you can simulate using the mixer, the cutting into plates with the portioner.

You can use the setup-behavior (after each part) to model coil changes.
