Solvay and e-Xstream Open Source MMI Technyl Design for Automotive OEMs
Solvay Engineering Plastics, a global leader in polyamide solutions, and e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software Company, have formed a partnership to open source MMI Technyl Design for automotive OEMs.
MMI Technyl Design is a technological solution powered by Digimat, the advanced material modelling platform developed and supported by e-Xstream. It allies an extremely comprehensive encrypted database exceeding 7,600 files and allows for a wide range of calculations when integrated with injection molding process modeling. A powerful and high-performance product creating value throughout the design process, it accurately predicts the performance of injection-molded parts which, when replacing metals, ultimately contributes to weight reduction and part production costs.
“We knew we had to aggressively develop and demonstrate the benefits of advanced predictive technology to increase its acceptance and value for customers and to do so have been working closely with Solvay,” comments Roger Assaker, CEO of e-Xstream. “Together we have developed and validated the technology to create a radically new business model aimed at boosting our customers’ confidence in plastic material selection for metal replacement solutions offering lower production and part costs and, importantly, to speed up time to market.”
Founded in 2003, e-Xstream engineering is a software and engineering services company 100% focused on the multi-scale modeling of composite materials and structures. Since September 2012, e-Xstream engineering is a wholly owned subsidiary of MSC Software.
