Can SolidWorks simulation calculate horsepower required for conveyors? We had a client ask if we could run calcs with certain weights & friction on their horizontal conveyor designs to determine the horsepower required.
Apparently it's not so simple. I was incorrect, it's for a drag flight conveyor not a horizontal conveyor with varying materials.
In motion you can do this for the kind of conveyors it will model - belts are not supported but you could probably approximated some way or another.
