modeFRONTIER bolsters Henniges Automotive's seal performance
Henniges Automotive uses modeFRONTIER optimization and robustness evaluation methods to improve seal design.
ECS System Simulation - Architecture and Performance Optimization from the Early Phases of the System Design
This case study from Alenia Aermacchi’s Environmental Control System (ECS) department shows how the different design disciplines involved are handled effectively through process integration and automation, enabling the optimization of the overall performance from the early stages of system design.
modeFRONTIER helps Cummins Improve Engine Performance
Cummins Engine, a leader in the manufacturing of diesel and natural gas-powered engines for a wide range of transportation and equipment purposes, has created a new power module ready to take on the stringent US - EPA regulations. It is significantly more compact and cost-effective than medium-speed engines at the same horsepower. It took 150 engineers to design it, and modeFRONTIER helped the High Horsepower group find the optimal valve timing, hence reducing fuel consumption.
The best compromise between stress and weight at SACMI
SACMI is a global OEM (Original-Equipment- Manufacturer), market leader in the production of machines and complete plants for the Ceramics, Packaging (Beverage and Closures&Containers), Food and Plastics industries. The goal of this analysis was to find a light but strong piston geometry in order to improve the Compression Molding Machine performance in terms of tensile and yield strength.
