Nordex, a wind turbine manufacturer, has purchased FiberSIM to enhance the transfer of data between design and analysis of their wind turbine blades.
Nordex is using FiberSIM to develop detailed ply designs, accurate flat patterns and manufacturing output, and complete documentation for the engineering release. The software will enable Nordex to enhance the automation of its product development process and optimize assembly glue gaps, as well as integrating with their existing CAD system to aid design and manufacturing.
“Transferring data between design and analysis can be extremely time-consuming,” said Hendrik Klein, Chief Designer in the Nordex Rotor Blade Division. “But during the testing phase we recognized that if we had a design tool that had a seamless interface to our CAE analysis tools, it would enable us to significantly reduce the product development cycle. FiberSIM also enhances the automation of our development processes, helps us improve blade quality, and alleviates time-consuming reworks in the factory.”
“We’re very pleased that Nordex, one of the premier names in wind energy, has recognized the value of FiberSIM,” said Dr. Olivier Guillermin, Director of Product & Market Strategy for Vistagy. “As the wind industry moves toward bigger and more complex blade designs, we’re seeing a maturation of the wind blade engineering process worldwide, and Vistagy’s products and services are playing a key role in that development.”
