Computer aided engineering (CAE) techniques provide the means to cope with the demand for increased productivity of more sophisticated and reliable product design and manufacture.
Finite element analysis (FEA) is a technique used to validate the design. Using an approximate numerical technique called the Finite element method, FEA is typically used by engineers in the CAE and R&D departments.
FEA has become part of the product development cycle in many industries including automotive, aerospace, earth moving and construction equipment, and bio-medical.
Primary Steps in FEA
Understanding the physical problem
Selection of type of analysis and Generation of elements (sheet metal parts, castings, different kinds of joints - revolute, bolted and weld)
Defining material (isotropic, anisotropic, hyper-elastic) and sectional properties, applying loading conditions and constraints
Solve the equations and Post processing of results
Present the results to the designer with conclusions and appropriate design suggestions
Benefits of CAE/FEA
Reduction of product development time by more than 50%
Reduction of prototype testing cost by more than 40%
Reduction of product development cost
Improved Quality and Durability
Development of team, establish review checklists at each milestone of the project
Reduction in total number physical prototypes
Optimization of designs for weight reduction and cost
Reverse engineering refers to the process of obtaining a CAD model from an existing physical part. The need for spare parts is increasing as technology continues to evolve. Reverse engineering is used as the primary tool to recreate a spare part.
The digitization of the physical model can be made by several methods. One of the methods is mechanical scanning. With the help of mechanical scanning, it is possible to acquire the geometry of a part having freeform surfaces.
ARi has all the required expertise to support customers for reverse engineering. ARi also has the capabilities and skills in dissecting a product, understanding how it functions, learning basic principles and designing/building a new product with the knowledge.
