A major Detroit Automotive OEM came to us with a dilemma. They discussed wanting to increase the efficiency of their current processes by adding temperature-sensitive machinery to their existing transmission facility. However, the main concern was that the machinery would need to reside in an area where tempered air met un-tempered air. The fluctuations in the surrounding temperature would correspond with unacceptable deviations in the product, diminishing quality and potentially leading to structural failure of the finished product.
It’s not always easy to maximize the effectiveness of design simulation, without access to the right resources when you tackle complex projects, especially with tight deadlines. However, when using simulation software appropriately, the benefits include:
We at Hagerman know unplanned downtime can be a major issue in manufacturing plant operations, and simulation software plays a significant role in reducing its negative effects. Before we get into how, though, we want to take a close look at what some firms are facing with downtime.
FEA can be done at any point of the design process and reduces the amount of experimental tests required, saving time and reducing cost.
Safelumin has developed an LED emergency light that is packaged in the form of a regular shaped light bulb. The Safelumin bulb is equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is rated to provide up to 3 hours of emergency light during a power outage. Safelumin’s patented power sensing technology is smart and knows the difference between purposely turning off the light switch and suffering a power failure.
The ability to run simulations for projects allows designers and engineers to verify assumptions, validate approaches, and identify the most cost-effective – and optimized - solutions before finalizing a design and sending it to production.
The advance in building technologies means professionals working in the architectural design industry have many moving parts to consider and coordinate.
To validate how a proposed design for a building would perform, you need to understand how all the systems interact and work together under a variety of real-world scenarios.
The use of data is pervasive and it’s no exception in the engineering and manufacturing field.
Sim Specialists, the simulation services division of Hagerman & Company, offers a complete solution for clients who need an expert on their team. Our simulation professionals work as an extension of your design team, assisting you with complex simulation projects. We also provide training so your team can efficiently utilize in-house simulation software. Watch this short video to see how your company can benefit from our professional services.
Whether it be finite element analysis or computational fluid dynamics, simulation technologies are crucial to designing to the highest degree. Our capabilities have come quite a long way in even just the last decade. The exponential rise of computers and the shrinking of transistors has meant that more complex simulations are becoming possible day by day. Simulation even now extends beyond just testing your design, programs are now capable of generatively designing a part based on constraints – a direct result of precise simulation.
