Focus industries are the plastics processing industry and manufacturers of plastic products. With more than two decades of experience in the field of simulation of plastic products, PART Engineering provides comprehensive know-how in the selection and application of simulation software. With Altair's easy-to-use CAE software you would be able to meet the challenges of virtual product development in a holistic way. This includes everything from concept (design, topology optimization, MBS, etc.) to manufacturing simulation (e.g. injection molding simulation etc.) to thermo and mechanical simulation. From the Altair product portfolio with direct reference to plastics are to be mentioned here: Inspire Mold, Inspire Extrude, Inspire PolyFoam and of course the mechanical solvers OptiStruct, Radioss und SimSolid.
To account for plastic-specific molded part properties in structural simulation, such as fiber orientation, Altair software can be coupled with Converse from PART Engineering.
Strength Assessment of Plastic Components
Material-specific strength assessment of plastic components is often a problem in practice. With S-Life Plastics from PART Engineering, which also interfaces with Altair solvers, a well-founded static strength assessment and fatigue strength assessment can be performed automatically.
