TROY, Mich. and LONDON, Feb. 19, 2019 — Altair, a global technology company providing solutions in product development, high-performance computing and data intelligence, and the organizers of CWIEME Berlin, the world’s largest electric motor and transformer manufacturing event have signed an agreement establishing Altair as this year’s CWIEME Berlin’s official Simulation-Driven Innovation partner. Altair will host a series of keynote and technical sessions on “Simulation-Driven Innovation” at the event, featuring customer rich presentations, with contributions of expertise in simulation-driven design, electromagnetics, thermal and structural simulation, and innovative product development during the May 21 – 23 event. Altair’s participation will also include a booth in the show’s newly added e-mobility hall. Focusing on e-mobility, electric motor, power generation equipment design, multiphysics and system simulation, Altair will also contribute with educational and joint public relation activities prior to, during, and following the event.
“The development of the next generation of electric machines can only meet the performance, efficiency and levels of sustainability required in response to market demand by leveraging the full potential of state-of-the-art digital tools and methods,” said Chloe Theobald, senior global content manager, CWIEME. “Using a holistic development approach based on simulation-driven design and multi-physics optimization is a key success factor in achieving these goals. This is something that we are excited to be exploring with our Simulation-Driven Innovation partner Altair, across a range of special talks and case studies at CWIEME Berlin this year.”
Electric machines have achieved significant performance gains within the last few years, with a tremendous increase in the overall complexity of electronic and mechatronic systems. The use of simulation methods has become mandatory for the inclusion of all needed functionalities and to meet customer expectations and regulatory requirements. Solutions such as Altair Flux, and multidisciplinary design and system simulation approaches using integrative platforms like Altair HyperWorks help to design innovative products and optimize their performance for efficiency, weight, noise, costs, and other attributes of devices such as electric motors or power transformers.
“We have participated at CWIEME Berlin presenting our Altair Flux products for many years,” said Dr. Pietro Cervellera, senior vice president EMEA operations, Altair. “As of last year, we have extended our participation from being an exhibitor, to becoming the event’s Simulation-Driven Innovation partner, contributing our expertise in simulation-driven design and multiphysics optimization, enhanced via a specialized session in the CWIEME central theater, and with presentations on the EV Momentum stage. The trade show has always been an excellent platform for us to present our solutions for the development of e-motors, electric rotating machines, transformers, and other devices. Now, due to the show’s targeted growth into e-mobility and electrification in general, it is even more important for us to show the huge potential simulation offers.”
The Altair hosted events and keynotes will include contributions from renown companies such as: Porsche, ELAPHE, Moving Magnet Technologies, Vortex, and others.
