Minimize downtime costs with durable products and robust manufacturing equipment
With the increasing demand in manufacturing products, or the massive urbanization of the planet, Industrial Equipment is at the core of our global transformation. To meet this demand, products and manufacturing processes need robustness to minimize downtime, and associated costs. Increased reliability leads to reduction in maintenance costs, and significant savings for industrial equipment companies.
Our set of solutions, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, empowers engineers to design equipment with extended life meeting performance, operational, and manufacturing requirements, in a collaborative environment where innovation blossoms through end-to-end integrated processes. Our set of solutions specifically support maximizing the life and performance of manufactured industrial equipment.
Through the solutions of the Equipment Structural Engineering industry process experience, ensure your manufactured products will perform in demanding environments and withstand the test of time.
Bearings and gears are fundamental components. Failure of any of the two will result in catastrophic failure of entire systems. Our efficient and accurate simulation-driven design process help ensure proper performance and durability to minimize risk of failure.
How such components interface will also play a key role in their performance and in their life expectancy. Our solutions allow engineers to digitally assemble components together quickly, and determine the best design given durability and performance requirements.
Welds are critical for the assembly of components together, but welds are singularities in the assembly, thus potential points of failure. Our structural simulation solutions ensure that welding processes do not introduce undesired residual stresses, thereby helping to prevent failure in operation.
Finally, complex manufacturing processes such as induction hardening can introduce defects in the manufactured product, such as distortions or cracks. A digital induction hardening process simulated with our best-in class technologies can capture these defects, to improve reliability of products
