You can save the planet with design & engineering simulation

Manufacturing processes today span everything from aerospace to automotive, energy generation to oil & gas, and electronics to shipbuilding. Yet, all these contribute to emissions and environmental pollution as well as intensive use of our world’s precious energy and water resources. With a burgeoning human population on planet Earth, limited natural resources, and endangered species …

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 …

Manufacturing Simulation Reduces Development Costs and Time in Cold Forming Tool Design

Omni-Lite Industries is an advanced material company. They recently designed a new part that was exhibiting a unique material flow. The part was cold formed out of 1100 aluminum material.

The initial tool design was completed and reviewed using the Simufact.forming simulation. Upon initial review, everything seemed to be acceptable, with the exception of the volume of material in the flange of the part. The second station trap extrusion die radius was then reduced in order to accommodate the material volume requirements.

Optimum Design of a Steel Connection of a Glass Façade for a High Rise Building

The use of glass in the exterior facades provides more light and good ambience to the inhabitants of a building. In our case, this leads to a high increase of the use of glass in the facades. The curtain wall is formed by an aluminum framework with steel connections. These steel connections are welded to the building while steel beams and bolted to the aluminum frame.

Case Study: Predicting Virtual Allowables

During the process of designing lightweight CFRP structures, one usually needs access to allowable values. However, allowables generation is particularly costly and time-consuming. Each characterized material system must cover various layups, coupon tests, and environment conditions. Each test configuration must be repeated many times to obtain a statistical evaluation of the mechanical property. With advanced …
