AutoNester-T optimizes the automatic placement of markers onto fabric panels. By configuring the optimal nesting pattern, the software minimizes the amount of wasted fabric. Leading manufacturers in the garment and upholstery industries already implement this software to optimize their production.
AutoNester-L creates automatically optimized markers for leather hides. The software nests the pieces optimally in a very short time, minimizes wasted material, while adhering to various constraints. AutoNester-L is used in the leather and car manufacturing industries.
CutPlanner is a software package for use in the textile manufacturing industry for automatic cut order planning. CutPlanner takes a customer’s order for a clothing item and creates a cut plan for that item, including different sizes, fabric types, or colors.
AutoCompactor is a software used for the compaction of two-dimensional nests. It compacts markers generated by humans or automatic nesting software. The software is intended to enhance the nesting functionality of AutoNester by an improved compaction algorithm.
PackAssistant is the leading software in the field of optimizing packing configurations of identical parts into containers. With PackAssistant the exact 3D arrangement of parts with complex shapes can be calculated and displayed as early as in their design phase.
MpCCI Coupling Environment
The MpCCI Coupling Environment links simulation programs, thereby solving multidisciplinary problems. The software supports the leading industrial simulation tools. Companies use MpCCI to solve difficult multiphysics problems to the benefit of product design and optimization.
The MpCCI Mapper supports complex simulation workflows and process chains involving multiple FEM packages. The software handles data interpolation and data conversion between the codes. Examples include codes for metal forming, heat treatment, and crash simulations.
The MapLib is a generic numerical library (C++) which can enhance your own CAE solutions with various mesh manipulation facilities. The MapLib offers a variety of methods to handle these incompatibilities – even for models with millions of nodes and elements.
The software package SAMG has been developed for the highly efficient, numerical solution of large, sparsely populated matrix problems. Problems of this type can be found in the fields of fluid and structural mechanics, oil reservoir and ground water simulation, process and device simulation, semiconductor physics, and circuit simulation.
FEMZIP is a software for the compression of simulation results. The size of data files is typically reduced by a factor of 10. Multiple versions can compress data formats in the fields of crash simulation, Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
DIFFCRASH is a software package for the stability analysis of crash simulations. Physical bifurcations in automobile design and numerical instabilities in simulation packages often cause extremely sensitive dependencies of simulation results on even the smallest model changes. DIFFCRASH localizes these critical structural areas and offers suggestions for improvements to obtain greater stability.
MYNTS is a multiphysical network simulator which can be used for electrical circuits, gas and energy transport, and water distribution. It models networks as systems of differential-algebraic equations. Users can program subnetworks as well as single special elements.
SCAIView is a knowledge discovery software for the life sciences. It facilitates the rapid identification of aggregated information from large text sources. For this reason it integrates the results of ProMiner with the associated text and allows semantic search.
chemoCR extracts chemical structural formulas and their chemical structure depictions from scientific literature. The software package converts the structure depictions into a machine-readable format that can be used for computer processing of the information.
The software tool ProMiner identifies and normalizes the names of genes and proteins in scientific literature. This identification is based on automatically generated dictionaries. ProMiner can handle voluminous lexica, complex thesauri and large expert-controlled vocabularies derived from ontologies.
Tremolo-X is a massively parallel software package for numerical simulation in molecular dynamics. It has been successfully used in projects addressing a variety of application fields, such as nanotechnology, material science, biochemistry and biophysics.
