Unlock the potential of lightweight design at JEC World

At JEC World, the largest international show of the composite industry, on 14th-16th March in Paris, Altair will present its technology to design, analyse, and optimise composite material structural parts and assemblies for laminated, chopped fibre and particulate composites as well as several customer successes.

In addition to its presence on the exhibition floor Altair will also introduce: 'Unlock the potential of Lightweight Design with Composite,' a new conference programme completely dedicated to composite simulation. The conference agenda includes presentations from renowned companies such as: PSA Group, CORIIOLIS, HENKEL, CIKONI Composite, speaking about best practice examples on how the Altair solutions help to create products and to improve development processes, when working with composite material. The conference will take place on 15th March at 2pm in the JEC conference rooms in Hall 6.

Altair’s collaboration with technology partners allow clients to establish a simulation-driven design process that fully leverages the light weight potential offered by advanced materials and manufacturing methods. At this year’s JEC World, Altair will present its broad range of simulation solutions, with a special focus on design and simulation tools for composite material, such as OptiStruct and Altair’s Multiscale Designer software. Multiscale Designer allows accurate exploration of composite material models from macro-level performance down to micro-structural characteristics and effects. Further highlights at the Altair booth include the Robot Bike, a customisable mountain bike made of composites and 3D printed knots, and an optimised composite hydro-foiling board from Team Rafale’s Class-C catamaran.

“We consider the JEC World in Paris a 'must be' to present our solutions for the design, optimisation, and analysis of composites structures,” said Robert Yancey, Vice President of Composites and Additive Manufacturing at Altair. "Light weighting is important for literarily every industry and definitely more than just using lighter materials. Those materials have to be designed and optimised for maximum lightweight results and our solutions help our customers to do exactly that. Visit us at our booth and attend our conference program on March 15th to see best practice examples of how to ’Design the Difference‘ with composites."

In addition to its own solutions Altair is also going to host its Altair Partner Alliance (APA) partners Componeering and HBM nCode as co-exhibitors. Componeering specialises in structural analysis and composite structure design and is known for ESAComp, a software tool for the analysis and design of composites. HBM nCode, developer of the leading brand of durability, test and analysis software, offers its customers nCode DesignLife, a CAE solution for fatigue life prediction from finite element models, via the APA.
