Better product development with simulation

Industrial Equipment and Machinery Simulation

As a key technology in industrial equipment and machinery manufacturing, SimScale is being leveraged by 65,000 engineers worldwide for more powerful, safe, and reliable machines and equipment.

In the industrial equipment industry, customer expectations and government regulations are related to strength, speed, safety, reliability, and endurance under different operating conditions.

To meet the high standards, various details — such as dynamics, thermal effects, and stress concentrations —, must be considered in the design cycle.

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.

Project Highlight

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.
