Simulation & Generative Design

Accelerate innovation with generative design and empower designers with easy-to-use simulation tools

Empower designers and engineers with Simulation

In today’s competitive market, engineers and designers constantly face new challenges within the industry, including reducing costs, decreasing weight and developing innovative product designs faster. As a consequence, companies are now looking to incorporate some form of digital prototyping to help reduce design-to-market lead times.

For your company to remain competitive today and in the future, you need to empower designers and engineers with easy-to-use simulation tools that will help you make better and informed decisions early on.

Symetri has a dedicated team of highly skilled engineers who can provide problem-solving services for most types of mechanical problems: from design and stress analysis of aeronautical equipment to heavy mining machines in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and from the optimisation of cleanrooms for the pharmaceutical industry to cooling of defence-critical equipment and huge transformers in CFD.

Accelerate innovation with generative design

Generative design can drastically reduce design and development times by allowing the designer and engineers to explore a multitude of design scenarios in a short space of time that would otherwise be impossible mainly due to cost and time.

Benefits of generative design include:

Light weighting – Minimise mass and material use while maintaining high-performance standards and engineering constraints.

Performance improvements – Use generative design to help improve and optimise product durability and eliminate areas of weakness.

Part consolidation – Consolidate multiple components into solid parts to maximise the potential of additive manufacturing.

MECON SimSolid | Altair® SimSolid® enables Mecon—design and engineering for heavy industry— to slash its structural analysis time by 90%.

Meet Mecon

Founded in 1997, Mecon is an engineering design and fabrication company providing turnkey solutions for organisations in, among other sectors, the steel and mining industries in northern Sweden. The company is based across two locations, Luleå and Gällivare, also in northern Sweden.

Together with its partners and subcontractors, Mecon offers end-to-end solutions in mechanics, from feasibility studies to the finished product. Its flexible and responsive approach enables Mecon to design and fabricate new solutions to age-old problems. It works often with clients who may have depended on long-established ways of undertaking certain processes but had never found alternatives. Mecon challenges this acceptance of ‘the way things are done, accompanying its clients on a continuous journey of innovation.

Mecon focuses on delivering improved ways; more customised structures or machines than the standard solutions that clients often adopt. To sharpen this focus, Mecon was looking for technology that could ease the calculation process involved in designing the highest safety standards and ensuring the resistance of its products to the harshest operating environments.
