Noran Engineering's NEiFusion Combines Parametrics With Nastran


Westminster, CA.  December 5, 2006.  Noran Engineering, Inc. a leading developer and global supplier of Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) software announced the release of a new simulation product, NEiFusion. The software is aimed at engineers in product design, development, optimization, testing, and quality.  The product breaks new ground in the engineering software market with the unique and highly advantageous coupling of two highly regarded software technologies from the design and analysis disciplines -- 3D feature based, parametric CAD platform for model creation, and high accuracy, industry proven Nastran solvers for solution generation. NEiFusion virtually tests parts in the design phase for a wide range of static and dynamic structural and thermal conditions in a CAD-environment amenable to exploring design alternatives. The combination of parametric CAD environment and Nastran is a first in the industry and will be a force promoting the integration of design and analysis. In addition, the precedent setting price point will extend the market for professional level Nastran analysis and simulation software from the domain of large corporations to the level of individual engineers.

NEiFusion's geometry technology enables an FEA model development process that is very familiar to CAD users. The solid modeling engine is intuitive, robust, powerful, and proven in industry through extensive use in 3D CAD systems.  Highly respected Nastran Solvers are valued for their accuracy, speed, and long history of providing reliable time tested solutions for structural, thermal, modal, and dynamic engineering problems in industry. The Nastran foundation insures acceptance in the FEA community, wide file sharing capabilities, and a direct migration path to higher end analysis if needed.  In addition, NEiFusion includes a comprehensive suite of features for results evaluation, presentation, and reporting.  

Dave Weinberg, CEO of Noran Engineering, remarked on the significance of NEiFusion's release, "The user friendly and familiar CAD environment of NEiFusion combined with its aggressive product pricing means accurate, reliable Nastran analysis and simulation is now accessible to all members of the product development team  -- from design and analysis to test and quality. Astute engineering managers will use the fusion of these functional areas to boost innovation, cut the high cost of prototyping, insure quality, and beat competitors to market."
