Hexagon AB, a specialist in sensor, software program and autonomous options, has acquired CADLM SAS, a pioneer in powering computer-aided engineering (CAE) with synthetic intelligence (AI) and machine studying to revolutionise the impression of simulation in product improvement processes and lifecycles
CADLM’s ODYSSEE software program platform applies AI and machine studying to real-world sensor information and physics-based simulation information to provide correct, predictive fashions of a product at environment friendly computing energy ranges.
The mixture permits sooner, extra environment friendly simulations of dynamic, multi-physics phenomena, similar to automotive crash and security, that totally characterise and perceive real-world product behaviour. This perception permits engineers to discover the design house extra extensively and interactively and enhance next-generation merchandise with out prohibitive computing price or time.
Furthermore, the pervasive use of the digital twin past the early design section permits producers to leverage picture recognition, predictive simulation and fault prediction to deal with challenges similar to downtime, throughput, high quality and adaptability all through the manufacturing course of.
“The convergence of CAE with advances in data management, AI, machine learning and an increasingly connected manufacturing lifecycle is transforming the industry’s ability to address increasingly complex design challenges with rapid innovation and increased productivity,” stated Hexagon president and CEO Ola Rollen.
“CADLM’s AI knowledge and technology further strengthen our Smart Manufacturing solutions portfolio, putting data to work beyond the early design phase to improve product design innovation, manufacturing productivity, product quality and environmental sustainability through reductions in material waste,” Rollen added.
CADLM will function as a part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. The acquisition has no important impression on Hexagon’s earnings. Completion of the transaction (closing) is topic to regular closing situations.
