Altair Engineering
announced that it has collaborated with the
ESI Group to integrate Altair's
PBS Professional and
e-Compute into ESI Group's
Open Virtual Try-Out Space (VTOS) solution. Integrating PBS Professional grid technology will provide benefits from ESI Group's computing resources, while the e-Compute Web Portal enables users to submit and manage jobs from anywhere via an Internet connection. Open VTOS is a suite of virtual engineering applications that realistically simulate a product's behavior during testing. Open VTOS also fine tunes the manufacturing process in accordance with desired product performance, and evaluates the environment's impact on product performance. Using realistic material physics to provide virtual solutions, Open VTOS replaces the lengthy trial-and-error processes on
physical prototypes.


IronCAD
announced
iCAD Solutions Ltd has joined its reseller network in the United Kingdom as an IronCAD exclusive dealer. Simon Keast, iCAD's founder, is the former president of Annex Technology Ltd, a UGS reseller. Having previously focused on high-end CAD solutions, Keast, realized this form of CAD implementation was not suitable for small and medium-sized businesses. "The problem with high-end CAD in a small or medium-sized company is that overhead from training and system maintenance can cripple the business. IronCAD retains all the power and functionality of high level CAD systems but does not require extensive training and maintenance," said Keast. IronCAD's scene
environment supports a drag-and-drop interface. Users can create models piece by piece without worrying about design intent. While history-based parametric modeling systems constrain users during the design phase, IronCAD allows users to manipulate parts and assemblies at any time. Significant changes can be made to a model without re-starting the project.


Vero International Software
announced that its parent company
VI Group plc has acquired
Camtek Ltd, the UK developer of PEPS software for the production CAM market, incorporating mill/turn applications, wire EDM, 5 axis laser cutting, and tube cutting. The tube cutting products apply to the architectural and construction environments where an increasing number of buildings are being built around a steel framework. Camtek calculates the correct intersection and cutting patterns for joining multiple tubes and sizes. Camtek's wire EDM solution is recommended by many of the worlds leading manufacturers of wire erosion machines. Other recent developments include the revamp of its core 2½ axis and 3D CAM products with the inclusion of advanced
mill/turn strategies and high speed milling.
