Products

Products Supplied

Simulation:
We have a range of simulation solutions, which can be utilised at various stages of a project, including a Virtual Commissioning suite that has been developed in-house and is now stipulated by leading manufacturers as part of the project lifecycle. Discrete Event Simulation and Offline Robot Programming are also available to optimise and de-risk processes.
Proof of Principle Contracts:
We de-risk key areas of complex automated machinery by building and developing sections of the system that contain either new technology or a new process never before used. This forms part of the de-risking process that may be conducted before final system design and build.
Standalone Robotic and Automation Cells:
Wood’s Systems Division supplies turnkey automation cells often utilising single or multiple robots. Wood has extensive experience with a wide variety of robot manufacturers and industries.
