Altair will present its solutions for the design and optimisation of composites as well as several customer successes at JEC Europe 2015.
From cases such as Rolo Bike, which will be on display at the show, to the support of an automated development and manufacturing process for composites with the Fibre Patch Preforming (FPP) method (Manz AG); Altair explains that it can offer know-how in the design and optimisation of composites. With these solutions, engineers are guided to an optimal material placement for laminate and honeycomb composite structures.
“The JEC show is an extremely important show for us, so we have increased the level of our participation this year,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, Managing Director of Altair Southern Europe. "The design and optimisation of composites is crucial in reaching lightweight goals, since any component made of composites is only as good as the design behind it."
Altair welcomes Altair Partner Alliance (APA) partner Componeering and long-term customer CEDREM as co-exhibitors at its stand. Componeering specialises in structural analysis and composite structure design and is known for ESAComp software for the analysis and design of composites. CEDREM is a centre of expertise for composite structures and hydrodynamics. The company offers support in concept creation, validation testing management (explosion, hypervelocity impact, etc.), the characterisation of materials and composite material research.
“We are very happy to be joined by Componeering and CEDREM at JEC Europe," adds Robert Yancey, Vice President of Aerospace and Composite Solutions at Altair. "While Componeering extends our already broad offering for composite design by adding depth of expertise in composites modelling and analysis, CEDREM is very successful in applying our solutions for product development. A great example is how HyperWorks was used for the high pressure impact simulation of 3D sandwich panel energy absorbers, a project for which the company received the 40th Ingenieur Général Chanson Award in 2013."
Altair will be exhibiting in Hall 7.3, Stand S18.
Sharp & Tappin has installed and commissioned a Compcut 200 composite plate saw at Renault Sport Racing in Enstone, Oxfordshire, UK.
Alvant has been appointed to work on a two-year, £28 million project titled Large Landing Gear of the Future, which aims to deliver a 30% weight reduction and assist the aerospace industry’s drive to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Electric GT Holdings and SPV Racing recently unveiled the race-ready version of the EPCS V2.3 Tesla P100DL at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The car features lightweight body parts made using Bcomp's ampliTex and powerRibs natural fibre composite reinforcement products, contributing to a 500 kg weight reduction over the road edition.
