TROY, Mich., March 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Altair presents at this year's HANNOVER MESSE, April 24 - 28, its solutions and methods for simulation driven design and a technology demonstrator of a virtual cobot (a collaborative robot), as well as customer examples to demonstrate how Altair's solutions can be applied to develop innovative products. In addition, Altair will host: a
"Design the DifferenceTM" day, offering a conference program that addresses the challenges and needs of engineers working on the development of increasingly complex products, featuring customer examples of successful product developments. The "Design the Difference" day conference program is included in the overall program of the CAE Forum and will take place on April 25th at 1:30 pm in hall 6/L46.

Today product creators have to consider the entire mechatronic system, including its structure, sensors, actuators, controllers and much more. How these complex processes can be handled will be presented with a virtual cobot demonstrator, showing the challenges in the development of smart devices and offering solutions for innovative IoT products. From 1D to 3D - from sensors to optimized structures, as well as data analytics, all required development steps can be conducted and solved with Altair's software platform and its simulation driven innovation approach.
How to handle manufacturing methods and smart materials are showcased with exhibits of products by Altair customers. Among these the Robot Bike, a bike that combines carbon fiber and 3D printing technologies, resulting in a fully customizable, lightweight, and high strength mountain bike. PROTIQ's additively manufactured injection molding tool, that offers unparalleled profitability through structural and thermal optimization. And an example of a before welded component of a rocker arm for an agricultural soil tillage unit, which is now casted and was optimized regarding weight, material usage and durability, from AMAZONE. The demonstrator was developed together with Altair, voxeljet, and Procast.
Highlighted topics at the Altair booth are:
- Design processes for modern manufacturing methods
- Electric efficiency
- Smart Material Design
- Connected Model Based Engineering
- System Simulation
- Industry 4.0 / Cobots / Smart Devices / IoT
- and HyperWorks 2017 the most comprehensive CAE platform available today.
