CD-adapco Joins the ESTECO | Illycaffè Design Competition

Along with the modeFRONTIER optimization platform, free STAR-CCM+ demo licenses will be provided to students taking on the illycaffé Design Competition to create the Iperespresso machine of the future. ​

Students will experience the dynamics of coupling software with modeFRONTIER to unleash their creativity and find the best design. With CD-adapco on board, modeFRONTIER can seamlessly integrate STAR-CCM+ and allow students to incorporate CFD simulations and utilize the wide range of advanced features provided by modeFRONTIER.

The competition, launched by ESTECO in partnership with illycaffè, provides students and teams with an opportunity to experience different stages of design, prototyping, and production. Students equipped with state-of-the-art software will be challenged to find the most innovative water pressurization system capable of guaranteeing the optimal performance of illy Iperespresso capsules while maximizing sustainability in terms of energy consumption. The winning team can look forward to a trip to EXPO 2015 in Milan, a 1-year modeFRONTIER license (up to three per team) and an illy IPERESPRESSO X7.1 espresso machine.

We’re looking forward to the many innovative and unique designs from some of the world’s brightest minds and wish all of our participating students the best of luck!
