Istanbul Technical University and Simufact Establish 'Virtual Manufacturing Laboratory'
The Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Turkey, and Simufact Engineering GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, have established a 'Virtual Manufacturing Laboratory'. The Laboratory will extend ITU´s education, research and development capabilities in the field of Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) and virtual try-out technologies - as a response to the growing industrial demand in Turkey for engineers with manufacturing simulation software expertise. The official opening ceremony was held by the Faculty of Machinery on November 20, 2013.
Industry in Turkey has a growing demand for Engineers with simulation know-how. Simufact Engineering is one of the leading providers of manufacturing simulation software for metalworking and -processing companies. Virtual testing methods help companies save valuable production resources and simultaneously reduce the time needed to release innovative production processes for (serial) production.
In a first step the 'Virtual Manufacturing Laboratory' will be used for the course IML402- Manufacturing Laboratory II, in which undergraduate students will perform virtual tests for basic metal forming processes, followed by physical experiments. Besides, graduate students may use the software for advanced academic applications.
