Machinery manufacturing companies worldwide are finding ways to differentiate from others in terms of value, functional performance and durability. Competitive differentiation brings more revenue to the company’s bottom line and companies are finding new ways to acquire the leading edge.

Best in class manufacturing companies are evolving from the traditional engineering “build and break” process to virtual prototypes, and simulation solutions are becoming an integral part of the design process.

MSC Software, as the originator of modern CAE simulation software provides a variety of proven simulation solutions across a broad spectrum of machinery applications. MSC also enables customers to maintain uniformity and reliable information sharing across departments and the supply chain.

Benefits to Engineers
  • High-fidelity simulation of common mechanical parts, such as gears, belts, chains, and bearings.
  • Enhanced productivity with incredibly quick model-solve-evaluate process times
  • An automated, wizard-driven model creation process for ease-of-use
  • Straightforward evaluation of results in Adams/Postprocessor
The ability to quickly and thoroughly evaluate mainly design alternatives with MSC Software’s solutions made it possible to increase the processing speed of our machines by 50%, while reducing vibration levels below the previous generation of machines”
