Within drive technology and mechatronics more and more use is made of digital models to engineer an optimal application with simulations. With these digital twins you have a lot of insight into the behavior of the drive system prior to the actual realization. This can save a lot of time and costs. Another trend is connected drives and control for continuous monitoring for the benefit of service, maintenance and energy consumption. The mechanical couplings also receive more attention. Think of compactness and less weight in combination with the power to be delivered and lower energy consumption.
