Mechanics simulation

Mechanics simulations are an effective way to test whether electronic devices meet their requirements. Requirements may relate to environmental conditions, various cases of usage, or statutory reliability tests.

What's the use of mechanical simulations?

Virtual testing of product requirements already at the design stage speeds up the product development phase and improves product quality.

  1. You can quickly test new ideas in a virtual environment. You can easily evaluate and various design solutions.
  2. You can use simulations to optimize the product's structure and materials.
  3. The quality of the product is great from the very beginning of the project onwards.
  4. Virtual prototypes save time and money because physical prototypes do not need to be built at all stages of testing. This shortens the product development period and the products are brought to market more quickly.

The mechanics simulation services we offer

The device may be exposed to dust, vibration, heat, humidity or even underwater conditions, might fall, or may suffer collision. All of these place huge demands on its durability.

Mechanical simulations are a powerful tool for optimizing mechanical design and analyzing mechanical performance. Simulations are particularly useful when one wants to model the performance of a device under extreme conditions or in situations of misuse.

For example, we implement the following types of dynamic mechanics simulations:

  • Drop and impact resistance tests
  • Pressure test and tightness requirements (IP) — sealing functionality
  • Mechanisms, installation simulations, key function simulations

Mechanical simulations can be performed on a device of any size, regardless of the material. For example, we have modeled and tested the following devices and operating situations:

  • Portable devices
  • Medical technology equipment
  • Measuring instruments and sensors
  • IoT devices
  • Safety technology equipment
  • Wearable technology for sport and well-being
  • Imaging equipment for professional use and sports
  • Batteries
  • Vibration tests for motor vehicles and durability of the fuel tank
  • Behavior of various materials under extreme conditions, such as in cold climates, for example

Case study: Drop test simulation

The customer's device broke during the prototype drop test. The device shut down and refused to re-activate. Locating the fault and finding a solution was only possible by simulation. 

The drop test simulation revealed problems with the product's circuit board and in an important component. The simulation was used to quickly find a solution that made the device suitable for product requirements.

 Drop test simulation and damage analysis should be part of product development, as changing the design at the beginning of the project is easier and cheaper than when the project is already progressing to the prototype stage.

Our expertise guarantees the best results in mechanical simulation

We carry out high-quality mechanical simulations with the professionalism backed by long experience.  We have the know-how to model the behavior of complex materials, multi-part assemblies, complicated mechanical interactions and varying load states.

In addition to building the actual simulations, our service includes a detailed analysis of the test results. On the basis of the analysis, we will also submit proposals to improve the structure of the product. 

We use the most advanced computing programs in the field to run simulations. Our powerful computing server ensures fast, high-quality results.
