Altair to host partner Componeering and customer CEDREM at booth

Troy, Mich., February 12, 2015 – Altair today announced it will present its solutions for the design and optimization of composites as well as several customer successes at JEC Europe March 10-12 in Paris. From use cases such as Rolo Bike, which will be on display at the show, to the support of an automated development and manufacturing process for composites with the Fiber Patch Preforming (FPP) method (Manz AG), Altair offers vast expertise in the design and optimization of composites. With Altair's solutions, engineers are guided to an optimal material placement for laminate and honeycomb composite structures.

“The JEC show, recognized as the top composites event in the world, is an extremely important show for us, so we have increased the level of our participation this year,” said Mauro Guglielminotti, Managing Director of Altair Southern Europe. "The design and optimization of composites is crucial in reaching lightweight goals, since any component made of composites is only as good as the design behind it."

Altair welcomes Altair Partner Alliance (APA) partner Componeering and long-term customer CEDREM as co-exhibitors at its booth. Componeering specializes in structural analysis and composite structure design and is known for ESAComp, software for the analysis and design of composites. CEDREM is a center of expertise for composite structures and hydrodynamics. The company offers support in concept creation, validation testing management (explosion, hypervelocity impact, etc.), the characterization of materials, and composite material research.

“We are very happy to be joined by Componeering and CEDREM at JEC Europe," adds Robert Yancey, Vice President of Aerospace and Composite Solutions at Altair. "While Componeering extends our already broad offering for composite design by adding depth of expertise in composites modeling and analysis, CEDREM is very successful in applying our solutions for product development. A great example is how HyperWorks® was used for the high pressure impact simulation of 3D sandwich panel energy absorbers, a project for which the company received the 40th Ingenieur Général Chanson Award in 2013."

Other APA partners presenting their solutions at JEC Europe 2015 include Anaglyph and e-Xstream. Further information about Altair, its solutions, and the APA may be found at Altair’s JEC Europe booth: 7.3./S18.
