MSC Software Corp. announced that The Hadley Group, one of Europe's largest privately owned cold rolled steel manufacturers, has invested in Marc and Patran to simulate their patented UltraSTEEL process, as well as for press tool design, product development, and other ancillary processes. The UltraSTEEL process was first developed in 1984 and results in stronger roll formed products, thereby allowing the use of lighter sections. To enhance understanding of UltraSTEEL, The Hadley Group undertook a research project in 2009 in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton. To support this project, the team evaluated a
number of commercial CAE software systems for advanced nonlinear simulation technology before deciding on MSC Marc and Patran.
