An Altair customer for many years, Schneider Electric at first used only Altair Flux; now the company has extended their usage to several more software products in the Altair HyperWorks suite, including solutions such as Activate, MotionSolve, OptiStruct, and others to apply co-simulation in their development processes. Schneider feels their collaboration with Altair is more like a partnership than the standard supplier-OEM relationship.
Traction-based, patented NuVinci® transmission, is a continuously variable planetary (CVP) technology enabling performance and efficiency improvements for machines that use an engine, pump, motor, or geared transmission systems. Fallbrook Technologies has been working on improving oil flow inside the NuVinci products as it affects the transmission’s efficiency, durability, power, capacity, and cost. Altair worked with Amazon Web Services (AWS), a secure cloud services platform, to provide an integrated solution to Fallbrook including advanced GPU hardware, high-performance computing (HPC) and the nanoFluidX software through industry-leading workload management and job scheduler, Altair PBS Professional™.
Mabe is a Mexico-based international appliance company designing, producing and distributing a wide spectrum of home appliances such as washing machines, dryers, cooking ranges, refrigerators, air-conditioners, microwaves, etc. Altair technology has enabled Mabe to increase the capacity of their washing machines by 35%, and the spin speed by 24% while reducing the cost per cubic foot by 10%.
HyperWorks’ Simulation Technology Enables Godrej to Streamline Sheet Metal Tooling Processes
Using Altair HyperForm, HyperWorks’ stamping simulation technology, Godrej was able to design and
fine-tune a successful tool for a rear fender, while minimizing die testing time by reducing physical
trials. Leveraging numerical analysis, Godrej was also able to predict the size, shape and location of
the blank accurately. HyperForm’s ability to visualize failure in incremental simulation enabled them to
finalize the draw bead location and characteristics.
