Heavy mobile equipment has to stay in operation for decades, operating for long hours and under heavy loads. It is highly critical that this equipment is designed to be durable to minimize service downtimes that could otherwise have potential ramifications downstream. Coupled with the customization requirements coming from customers that lead to a profusion of product variants, heavy mobile equipment manufacturers face significant challenges in developing and managing durable heavy mobile equipment product portfolios.
Heavy Machinery Structural Engineering solution is an end-to-end structural and durability solution on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform with a wide range of applicability. The solution streamlines the simulation process to evaluate product failures and to minimize warranty costs for single components as well as large assemblies (including welded structures). The solution could be used both by designers to identify potential issues early in the design cycle as well as analysts to perform detailed simulations.
