Manufacturers and suppliers use Realistic Simulation Solutions from SIMULIA to evaluate design alternatives, collaborate on projects and leverage computing resources for more efficient design analysis.
Computers & Peripherals
Computer hardware consumers constantly demand more features in better designed packages. Computers and peripheral devices have to withstand the shock loading that might typically arise during shipping, installation and possibly drop. Mechanisms within the product have to be designed for both form and function, for example the sliding mechanism of a CD drive drawer, the rotating mechanism of a hard disk drive, etc.
The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite from SIMULIA allows manufacturers of computers and peripheral devices to validate designs against shipping shock, to check thermal performance, as well as to design reliable mechanisms (sliders, hinges, etc) that are common in modern devices.Our solution includes leading contact and stabilization techniques necessary to simulate media transport in printers, copiers, faxes and more.
