Magnaghi Aeronautica, an Italian aerospace supplier, has chosen Altair Engineering's HyperWorks simulation platform to develop and optimise its landing gear systems. The company designs, develops, and manufactures landing gears, hydraulic components, and fuel tanks for the aircraft industry.

'When we first saw HyperWorks and especially HyperMesh during a presentation in Naples last year, we were immediately impressed with its capabilities and flexibility,' said Costantino Russo, chief deputy within the technical department of Magnaghi Aeronautica. 'We expect remarkable time savings through faster and more automated development processes, and I think that OptiStruct will help us to further reduce both weight and shapes of our components. Particularly, I like the flexibility of the product family, its open architecture and its automated meshing capabilities.'

Magnaghi Aeronautica will initially deploy HyperMesh, the suite's finite element pre-processor, and OptiStruct structural optimisation technology.
