Digimat added to HyperWorks Enabled Community
Digimat by e-Xstream Engineering, a developer of non-linear multi-scale modelling technology for composite materials and structures, has joined Altair's HyperWorks Enabled Community (HWEC). HyperWorks users can now download the latest versions of Digimat–MF, Digimat-MX, Map and Digimat to Radioss including the coupling to injection moulding simulation codes. To date, more than 340 companies worldwide have joined the HyperWorks Enabled Community.
Digimat enables users to bring innovative and high quality products to market faster through highly efficient and accurate modelling of composite materials and structures using finite element analysis (FEA). Better models mean fewer prototypes to be built, which in turns lowers the development time and cost.
'E-Xstream is very pleased to offer the Digimat suite to the HyperWorks Enabled Community,' said Roger Assaker, co-founder and CEO of e-Xstream Engineering. 'These tools will enable composite material suppliers and users to reduce the time and cost needed to develop innovative materials and structures. Digimat will notably enable plastic suppliers and users to model the non-linear behaviour of reinforced plastic parts taking into account the effects of the injection moulding process.'
Martin Nichols, Altair Executive vice president of global alliances and operations, said: 'This addition is particularly timely since Moldex3D, an injection moulding simulation tool, was recently added to our program. The combination of Digimat, Moldex3D and Radioss is a very attractive solution to many of our users.'
HyperWorks is a suite of enterprise analytic applications that includes statistical, database, visualisation and simulation software to help companies make better business decisions. The partnership with e-Xstream brings the total number of applications available under the HyperWorks platform to 56 including 31 third-party software applications such as Digimat.
