Machine Tools

Industrial machinery, or machine tool manufacturing only, is a very wide area of application. The following examples should give you an overview of the possible services for a machine tool, such as a milling machine. For injection molding machines, of course, hydraulics and other topics play a major role.

1D System Simulation

Overall system design (co-simulation or import of state space matrix from ANSYS® into Matlab/ Simulink®), dynamic stiffness incl. control, positioning process.

3D MBD/ FEA

Stat. und dyn. stiffness of mechanics, frequency response, influence of temperature.

3D CFD

Cooling.

Tool Making

Tool Making

1D System Simulation

Cooling circuit.

3D MBD/ FEA

Kinematics, stiffness and deflection.

3D CFD

Thermal behavior of product and tool, optimization of cooling. We do not carry out injection molding simulation, but can import a temperature field from the commonly used software packages.

Hydraulics

Hydraulics

Fluid technology is one of our core competencies. Typical applications in the different simulation disciplines are:

1D System Simulation

Pumps (gear pump, vane pump, axial piston pump, …), hydrostatic gears, hydraulic cylinders/ actuators, valves, throttles, pressure accumulators, cooling and much more. Bearing loads for detailed pumps calculation. Precise calculation of volume flows and energy consumption. Control and stability of the oil circuit. Coupling with multibody dynamics to simulate control-hydraulic-mechanics causality loop.

3D FEA

Strength, deformation of components (e.g. clearance between impeller and housing of a pump). Vibrations, bearings.

3D CFD

Detailed optimization of components.
