RoHS and REACH Compliant Cables

            Recent updates to European substance regulations are requiring electronic device and cable manufacturers and their supply chain to use “greener” raw materials. Many device manufacturers, primarily medical, are losing their exemptions to these regulations over the next few years. In addition to qualifying changes to existing products companies are challenged with finding high-performance alternatives.

Motor Trends: Additive Manufacturing Drives Production of Race-Ready Cars

Additive manufacturing (AM) is crucial in motorsports. In the race for speed and performance, it has long been a key design and testing tool. Now, race teams are revealing that AM parts are tough enough for use on the track. This trend toward end-use parts has been building for a long time, but teams can be secretive about what gives them a competitive edge.

Design Integration of Advanced Lightweight Composite Materials and the Challenges of Multifunctionality

The aerospace and defense and automotive industries are leaders in the adoption of advanced materials. Driven by the need to improve energy efficiency and increase performance without compromising safety, aircraft and advanced automobiles are leveraging the properties of composite materials to provide strength while reducing weight. However, the complexity of the materials, their design and manufacture are challenging traditional design workflows. An efficient method for simulating the performance of composite materials is therefore required. As more demands are placed on these materials, for example thermal and electrical performance, durability and stealth, not only is an efficient simulation environment required, the tools used must be able to capture these multiphysics effects to understand the multifunctional performance of the material. In this webinar, ANSYS will discuss the role of simulation based engineering for the efficient simulation of composites and the emerging challenges of multifunctionality. Dr. Perterer will describe how the ANSYS simulation tool set for composite materials enabled the design team to reduce the weight of the KTM X-Bow sports car monocoque by 20%.
