Altair today announced that Cetim (Centre technique des industries mecaniques), the largest technical center for industrial research in France, has chosen Altair s computer-aided engineering (CAE) suite HyperWorks to expand its technical capabilities in development projects. In particular, Cetim will leverage OptiStruct®, RADIOSS®, HyperMesh® and HyperView® to benefit from the advanced optimization and the high-performance meshing capabilities of the suite.
From consulting to testing and from engineering services to technical training, Cetim provides a comprehensive service offering to all types of companies within the mechanical engineering arena. The company covers multiple simulation domains within its industrial and research projects, including NVH, fatigue, and stress-strain analysis. Cetim uses Altair products for linear static validation of a test bench as well as for the optimization of components made of multilayer composites. Cetim s expertise has been leveraged across multiple industries, including transportation, aeronautics, railways, space, and defense.
As the leading French player in the fields of mechanical engineering innovation and research and development, we always need cutting-edge and state-of-the-art tools, said Haidar Jaffal, responsible for the technical team innovation, design, and simulation at Cetim. Altair s HyperWorks suite with its various top-notch development tools gives us these capabilities and the flexibility we need in our everyday work. The powerful tools of HyperWorks with which we are able to correct our CAD models, enable us to accurately handle the meshing of 2D and 3D parts, including the design and optimization of parts made of composite materials. The CAE suite and its tools help us streamline our development processes significantly, saving development and testing time, and providing our customers with innovative solutions at a competitive price for each industry we serve.
We are happy to see Cetim using Altair s HyperWorks suite for a wide variety of industry and research projects, said Mauro Guglielminotti, Managing Director Southern Europe, Altair. As an industrial technical center, Cetim has a history of using sophisticated software tools, especially in the area of finite element analysis. As lightweight design and optimization continue to gain importance in all industries, we offer the right solution at the right time. With HyperWorks, Cetim is able to expand its technical acumen while streamlining overall design and development using CAE and optimization technology.
