CAE for Industrial Equipment and Machinery

Industrial Equipment and heavy machinery design engineering Simulation Software

CFD and FEA Simulation Software for Industrial Equipment and Machinery

In the industrial equipment industry, customer expectations and government regulations are related to strength, speed, safety, reliability, and endurance under different operating conditions. Chosen by manufacturers to virtually simulate machines and industrial equipment, SimScale is helping to optimize the design early in the design cycle. This ensures the production of high-performance machinery with a shorter time-to-market and lower costs for physical testing. Perfectly suited for simulating all types of machinery and industrial equipment — with mounting, clamping, adjusting, rotating and other elements — SimScale is a simulation tool used across many different industries, including construction, mining, automotive, chemical, and steel industries and many more.

Machine Tool Thermal structural Analysis

Case Study

Thermostructural Analysis of a Machine Tool

Deformation is a major concern for high-precision machine tools. Determining the affected parts of a machine tool early on in the design process reduces testing and redesign efforts. In this project, a thermostructural analysis of a machine tool was performed with SimScale, in order to determine the deformation of structures under thermal loads.
