Industry: High Tech

Established in 1897, Sumitomo develops and delivers many new technologies and products through innovative R&D activities based on the prowess of its production engineering capabilities in electric wires and power cables.

The Challenge

Enhance cell phone cable durability and decrease wire breakage from fatigue.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Using Abaqus Unified FEA software, Sumitomo created computer models to simulate the behavior of everything from a single wire to a full bundle of coaxial cables.


The ability to make qualitative evaluations of the lifetime of an actual layout of electrical cables. They also will turn to even more complex design challenges with the lifetime evaluation methodology they developed with Abaqus Unified FEA.
