LMS to add mechatronic simulation software to portfolio

LMS International has entered negotiations to acquire Imagine, a French supplier of 1D multiphysics simulation solutions for mechanical and mechatronic stress. The move will extend its current solutions portfolio for simulation and physical testing.

Mechatronic system engineering, the combination of mechanical, electronic, and software engineering, has become a key development concern through the increased use of electrical and electronic systems in automotive, aerospace, and mechanical applications. Imagine’s AMESim software suite allows the simulation of multiphysics behaviour of mechanical and mechatronic systems in the concept stage, long before detailed CAS or 3D simulation models are available.

As a result of this acquisition, LMS will employ more than 800 people at 31 locations. In the future, it intends to further increase its international reach with additional offices in Europe and US.
