New Regulations for Electric Vehicles

This week marked an important EU mandate for electric vehicles, requiring all new electric vehicles to emit a noise at low speeds. Read how Actran is helping OEMs, such as Hyundai, by optimizing APAS system design. At moderate to high speeds, the only external noises typically generated by electric vehicles are caused by wind resistance …


Hexagon Smart Factory Update: “Make It Smarter”

By Brian Shepherd, Senior Vice President Software Solutions, Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division For the first time in history it’s now possible for factories to harness the full potential of their manufacturing and simulation data. If we look backwards to what was called ‘Industry 3.0’, factories in the 20th century were focused on simple automation of …


Big Data Management in Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing of polymers is transitioning from rapid prototyping to a true industrial production technique. While it brings valuable opportunities to the industry it also comes with a series of challenges for the engineers: the reliability of the mechanical properties of the final part still has some uncertainty and is not fully supported by standard …


Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing Training and Tutorials for Engineers

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a complex process that requires careful development by engineers. At this year’s MSC Software Global User’s Conference, hosted at HxGN Live, the latest simulation and engineering methods will be discussed regarding the additive manufacturing process. Notable presentations at this year’s conference include: “Accelerate the additive manufacturing design process,” “10x …


How to Resolve Warpage and Residual Stresses in Additive Manufacturing

The 2010s featured many new technologies that were once labeled ‘futuristic’ technologies, including drones, self-driving vehicles and printing physical parts. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing really took off this decade, but is not a straightforward and simple process. To print reliable parts, an engineer must overcome one of the biggest challenges in additive manufacturing. Warpage …


How to Simulate Autonomous Vehicle Technology

Autonomous vehicle technology and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are advancing every year, and its reliability is dependent on both sophisticated engineering and testing. Much has been written about real word testing of autonomous vehicles, but little has been written regarding the simulation portion. The goal of this post is to briefly discuss virtual simulation technology …
