Emulate3D acquired by Rockwell Automation

Posted: 16-Apr-2019

Rockwell Automation, Inc. has acquired Emulate3D, the simulation and emulation software provided by AutoLogic Systems in the UK.

AutoLogic Systems will continue to offer the range of Emulate3D software, that enables customers to virtually test machine and system designs before incurring manufacturing and automation costs and committing to a final design.

Graham Carter of AutoLogic Systems says: “This is a great opportunity for our Emulate3D customers and UK manufacturers. We are confident that the development of the software will only go from strength to strength under the new ownership.

“The range of software and support provided by us remains the same and we look forward to working with Rockwell, in particular their team in Milton Keynes, to bring the best emulation and simulation software to our customers. We will be updating customers with any developments in due course.”

“We are excited about the opportunities that Emulate3D’s software offers our customers,” said Fran Wlodarczyk, Rockwell Automation senior vice president for its architecture and software segment. “They will have the ability to improve their time to market and operational productivity through digital machine prototyping and virtual commissioning. It also marks another investment by Rockwell Automation to bring the Connected Enterprise to life.”

Rockwell Automation will add Emulate3D’s technology to its digital design portfolio to deliver solutions to automotive, logistics, material handling, and other industrial applications. Software will be sold as Emulate3D by Rockwell Automation, as part of Rockwell Automation’s FactoryTalk DesignSuite.
