Aernnova uses Altair’s powerful tools for structural optimization and finite element method pre- and post-processing
Troy, Mich., June 17, 2014 –
today announced that
, Spain, a leading aerostructures company, has heavily extended its use of Altair’s computer-aided-engineering (CAE) software suite
®. The company assumes integral management of large aircraft sections and provides engineering services, composites and metallic parts as well as maintenance and support services.
As one of the most important Tier 1 suppliers to the aerospace industry in Spain, Aernnova supports renowned customers such as Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, and others. Aernnova uses HyperWorks and especially
® to set up large geometries for structural analysis, and
® for post-processing tasks. The company also employs OptiStruct® to handle further weight optimizations of existing structures and
® for design of experiment studies.
Aernnova started working with Altair in 2009, strongly expanding its use of HyperWorks over time. Just recently, the company expanded its contract to enable unlimited use of HyperWorks for Aernnova Spain, giving engineers unlimited and flexible access to the entire CAE suite according to their needs.
“Altair products have proven to be very useful, time-saving tools for all of our development projects,” said Felix Rebollo Arribas, Structural Integrity Director of the Engineering Division at Aernnova. “HyperMesh became the default pre-processing tool in our company and its use continues to rise. It offers a user-friendly interface and contains plenty of helpful functions with which we are able to create and modify meshes and edit geometries. Another plus is the open architecture of the software suite. HyperMesh and HyperView are solver-independent, which makes it possible to prepare flexibly-applicable models and geometries for every specific solver a customer might request. Last but not least, I would like to emphasize the quality of the training and support provided by Altair.”
“The use of our tools in the aerospace industry has increased tremendously over the past few years,” said Stefano Deiana, Sales and Country Manager of Altair Spain. “This is due to three things – the open architecture of our software suite, the flexible licensing system we offer and the good fit of our tools for the aerospace industry with its extremely large models. We are very happy about the new unlimited agreement with Aernnova for the Spanish market and are looking forward to a long and fruitful collaboration on both sides."
Altair is focused on the development and broad application of simulation technology to synthesize and optimize designs, processes and decisions for improved business performance. Privately held with more than 2,000 employees, Altair is headquartered in Troy, Michigan, USA and operates more than 45 offices in 21 countries. Today, Altair serves more than 5,000 corporate clients across broad industry segments. To learn more, please visit
