China’s Largest Refrigeration Components Manufacturer Chooses SolidWorks Software To Support New Design Processes
A leading Chinese air conditioning and refrigeration components manufacturer has purchased SolidWorks software to shorten its product design cycles and improve product quality. Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. holds a share of over 50 percent in the market for air conditioning and refrigeration unit control valves globally. It is the supplier of some world's leading manufacturers, including Sanyo, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, and Emerson. Sanhua is using 115 seats of SolidWorks CAD software, 12 seats of SolidWorks Simulation software, and 35 seats of SolidWorks Enterprise Product Data Management solutions to overhaul its design processes. Sanhua's deployment of SolidWorks solutions marks a
big leap towards its transformation from a supplier into a R&D-oriented organization that provides high-value design schemes. SolidWorks solutions are conducive to accelerating change management throughout the design and production processes and allow Sanhua engineers to predict the performance of the finished products even during scheme designing.
The introduction of a new Discrete Element Modeling capability into the latest release of CD-adapco's multi-disciplinary engineering software STAR-CCM+ adds the ability to simulate bulk material handling and granular flows. In addition, STAR-CCM+ v5.06 includes a broad range of new features and improvements, including more than 200 customer enhancement requests. The Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) can be used to simulate the motion of a large number of interacting discrete particles, such as the granular flow of sand, food particles, metal powders, capsules, and slurries. DEM tracks the interaction between every particle in a numerically efficient manner, modeling contact forces and
energy transfer due to collision and conductive and radiative heat transfer between particles. STAR-CCM+ is the first commercial engineering simulation tool to include a DEM capability that is fully coupled with numerical flow simulation in a single software environment.
ENOVIA V6 Collaborative Innovation Solution Helping LG to Enhance and Integrate Collaboration and Product Data Management
Dassault Systèmes announced that LG Electronics (LG) has successfully adopted Dassault Systèmes' ENOVIA V6 solution. Designed to enhance and integrate collaboration and product data management, LG's Mobile Communications (MC) Company's deployment of ENOVIA V6 has been implemented in its R&D, manufacturing and purchasing processes by LG CNS, an IT consulting and solutions company, and Dassault Systèmes. To enable a faster and more efficient BOM management system, LG recognized the need for more accurate and consistent data management between its design engineering and BOM solutions, as well as powerful server security. ENOVIA V6 has addressed these issues, while
also improving product development through the automation of BOM creation, and providing a more systematic means of managing the countless product modifications that take place. In practice, this has made for a more efficient working environment, with staff now better able to share data and understand a product's development history. LG has already documented higher work efficiency among its global business operations thanks to the successful deployment of ENOVIA V6. Beginning with its installation in LG's MC Company, ENOVIA V6 will be gradually extended to include users throughout local subsidiaries in 58 regions and 17 countries.
