Altair Engineering announced that it has collaborated with the
ESI Group to integrate Altair's
PBS Professional and
e-Compute into ESI Group'sOpen 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
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 acquiredCamtek 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.
