Industry: High-Tech

HCL Technologies is a leading global IT services company, working with clients in the areas that impact and redefine the core of their businesses. HCL focuses on ‘transformational outsourcing,’ underlined by innovation and value creation, and offers integrated portfolio of services.

The Challenge

The competitive high-tech electronics industry is constantly driven to provide product innovation and cost and weight reduction, within very short design cycles.

Dassault Systèmes Response

HCL uses Abaqus FEA to create customized computer models of paper flow through printers in order to respond to a wide variety of customer design and product validation requirements.


Highly nonlinear FEA analysis accurately accounts for the behavior of a large number of printer design and functionality variables as well as different materials. Strong correlation between simulations and real-world test results. Using virtual prototyping with Abaqus enables HCL to reduce product development costs an average of 40 percent and cut three months off overall project time for designing and validating a typical printer.
