Digital twins

Digital Twins

Digital twins help organizations optimize performance, gain visibility of in-service life, know when and where to perform maintenance, and how to extend a product’s remaining useful life. We take a complete, open, and flexible approach that enables your digital transformation vision on your terms.

Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

Altair provides software that goes beyond the creation of unique prototypes with a robust simulation toolchain to support production designs created for additive manufacturing (AM). AM isn’t just for rapid prototyping, research projects, and advanced engineering teams.

The Connected Factory Floor - Smart Factory

The Connected Factory Floor

Altair can help you deploy edge compute clusters, train and execute machine learning models, implement complex application business logic, perform data transforms, visualize real-time data, and much more.

The 5G standard is the foundation for many IIoT applications. Simulating the devices, 5G antennas, and the 5G networks they are operating within, helps to create the desired communication performance.

We give you the building blocks for your digital transformation to get moving fast, scale quickly, and continue to improve over time.

Process Optimization

Manufacturing simulation has traditionally been applied during the latter stages of product development, but Altair has pioneered simulation-driven design for manufacturing (SDfM), bringing manufacturing simulation into the earliest stages of concept design with fast, accurate solvers and intuitive interfaces. This innovation allows concept designs to consider more manufacturing options and constraints, enabling engineers to better understand designs instead of depending purely on institutional know-how.

Smarter Equipment - Industry 4.0 Technology

Smarter Equipment

The increasing complexity of industrial machinery requires active management of technical risks in product line development and customer implementation projects. Altair’s integrated product and process simulation tools allow a holistic view of the system from different roles to ensure perfectly running production earlier.

Machine learning enables equipment to become self-aware, optimize itself, allow machine makers to automate path error corrections, and vary manufacturing tolerances or mechanical aging of the system.

Implement Effective Manufacturing Process Analytics

By extracting real value from their data, manufacturers can make accurate predictions about component life, replacement requirements, energy efficiency, utilization, and other factors that have direct impacts on production capacity, throughput, quality, sales, customer acceptance, and overall efficiency.


Optimizing Investment Casted Parts with Simulation and 3D-Printing

Investment casting is a valued manufacturing process known for its ability to produce detailed components with accuracy, repeatability, and in a variety of different metals, waxes, and high-performance alloys. Producing high-quality casted components is less prone to common design errors when a simulation-driven approach is used, leading to easier, more accurate analysis and optimization during the design phase.

Guide to Process Manufacturing

Any industry that produces bulk quantities of goods such as pharmaceuticals, food, chemicals, or cosmetics, is seeking to produce these products consistently while reducing cost factors like waste and down time. Due to the nature of process manufacturing, multiple ingredients are combined to be mixed, coated, or sorted, so understanding the behavior of these processes is of paramount importance for manufacturers. Through the use of simulation modeling and Smart Manufacturing principals, manufacturers are now able to optimize these processes, leading to greater productivity and profitability.
