ESTECO Webinar | Ditch Witch Shroud Design Exploration using powerflow integrated with modefrontier
ESTECO and EXA will host a joint webinar on December 14th 2017, presenting the successful integration of PowerFLOW simulation technology in the modeFRONTIER workflow to provide Ditch Witch® with valuable insight to guide the shroud design on one of its Vacuum Excavators.
For many off-highway equipment manufacturers, maintaining a competitive advantage can be an uphill battle. Meeting requirements like tightening regulations, increased customer expectations, and differentiated performance can escalate pressure on engineering to deliver reliable solutions on-time and on-budget. In some cases, the traditional design and development process is mostly sequential and can isolate engineering teams, leading to limited design insight and flexibility, missed performance targets, and project delays.
Design exploration – the process of using digital simulation to explore the available design space in order to thoroughly understand performance potential – can change all that.
The webinar focus on how Ditch Witch® have performed multiple analyses, by integrating EXA's PowerFLOW simulation technology into modeFRONTIER workflow, on their equipment to gain a deep understanding of how key design parameters impact performance and manufacturing costs – critical inputs for next-generation machine designs.
