Altair will present its comprehensive technology and expertise to design, analyse, and optimise composite material structural parts and assemblies for laminated, chopped fibre, and particulate composites as well as several customer successes at JEC World 2017.
In addition, Altair says that it will also introduce: ‘Unlock the Potential of Lightweight Design with Composite’, a new conference completely dedicated to composite simulation. The conference agenda includes presentations from companies such as PSA Group, Coriolis, Henkel and CIKONI Composite, speaking about best practice examples on how the Altair solutions help to create innovative products and to improve development processes, when working with composite material. The conference will take place on 15th March at 14:00 in the JEC conference rooms in Hall 6.
According to Altair, its expertise and collaboration with technology partners allow clients to establish a simulation-driven design process that fully leverages the lightweight potential offered by advanced materials and manufacturing methods. At this year’s JEC World, Altair will present its broad range of simulation solutions, with a special focus on design and simulation tools for composite material, such as OptiStruct and its Multiscale Designer software. Multiscale Designer allows accurate exploration of composite material models from macro-level performance down to micro-structural characteristics and effects. Further highlights at the Altair booth include the Robot Bike, a customisable mountain bike made of composites and 3D printed knots, and an optimised composite hydro-foiling board from Team Rafale’s Class-C catamaran.
“We consider the JEC World in Paris a 'must be' to present our solutions for the design, optimisation, and analysis of composites structures,” said Robert Yancey, Vice President - Composites and Additive Manufacturing at Altair. "Lightweighting is important for literarily every industry and definitely more than just using lighter materials. Those materials have to be designed and optimised for maximum lightweight results and our solutions help our customers to do exactly that. Visit us at our booth and attend our conference program on 15 March 2017 to see best practice examples of how to ’Design the Difference’ with composites."
In addition to its own solutions Altair is also pleased to host its Altair Partner Alliance (APA) partners Componeering and HBM nCode as co-exhibitors. It explains that Componeering specialises in structural analysis and composite structure design and is known for ESAComp, a software tool for the analysis and design of composites. HBM nCode is a developer of durability, test and analysis software, offers its customers nCode DesignLife via the APA.
