Virtual simulations are one of the most powerful tools for successfully bringing an application to market. Indem wir Konzepte mit möglichst wenigen physischen Iterationen analysieren, können wir die Entwicklungszeit und die Time-to-Market drastisch verkürzen.

First time right

Using advanced computer simulations, we can very accurately predict the behavior and performance of an application and calculate whether an application meets the requirements, even before the first prototype has been built. Weak spots in the design can be identified and corrected early.

Because the simulation process in combination with our knowledge and experience produces an optimal design, this often results in just one prototype or even a series mould. In addition to time and cost savings, this also improves the performance of your application.

Some of the simulations we can offer you:

Mechanical simulations (static/dynamic)

With FEM simulations we can calculate the load on your components or product. “FEM” stands for Finite Element Method, a method of calculating loads through structural analysis and topology optimization, with the aim of reducing your production costs and ensuring the functionality and quality of your product.

Thermal simulations

A thermal/thermodynamic simulation maps the static or transient thermal conditions of your design, such as the heat distribution at a constant or changing temperature, and the (mechanical/dimensional) effects this has on the components.

Topological and topographical optimization

Optimizing the structure (topology) and shape (topography) yields potentially significant material, weight and cost savings, while maintaining functionality. The ‘organic’ structures predicted with this method can be converted into manufacturable concepts using our knowledge of production processes. Dieser Ansatz führt zu einer optimalen Leichtbauweise.

CFD analyses

CFD simulations, in which ‘CFD’ stands for Computational Fluid Dynamics, visualizes the flows of gases/liquids around and through components and provides a detailed insight into the interaction between the two, without physical measurements. Areas or parts that lead to increased drag can be identified and reshaped in such a way that drag is minimized.

Injection molding simulations

Injection molding simulations (injection molding simulations or moldflow simulations in English) visualize the production process of plastic components, so that production errors as a result of, for example, shrinkage or warping can be predicted and thus prevented. Any air pockets, confluences and incidence areas can be shown and shifted/minimised by adjusting sprue locations and process conditions. The calculated fiber orientation and frozen stresses can be included in the mechanical simulations, so that the influence of anisotropy on product performance can be mapped.
