ETA-APME'S Product Launch Event
Be future ready with our cutting edge simulation technologies

Today, hardly any automotive goes into production without being thoroughly tested in simulations. This is necessary as product cycles become ever shorter, exposing manufacturers to much greater time pressure. The much-discussed digitalization of processes has found its way into the automotive industry.
Cutting edge simulation technologies are saving billions of lives, resources, money and time. The door to a better future begins here...

Artificial Intelligence in CAE

The patented Accelerated Concept to Product Process, ACP Process developed in collaboration with BETA CAE, has revolutionized and streamlined the product development process through optimization led design.

Based on the advanced SPDRM process management software of BETA CAE system ACP orchestrates the phases of
Product design and development and evaluates multiple design concepts under multidisciplinary loads, through topology and geometry, grade and gauge optimization.
The key benefits of the ACP Process Includes demonstrated capability to reduce product development costs significantly reduce product mass by approximately 20-40 % and reduce product development time, while Improving product performance in terms of suliness, NVH, Crash/Safety and durability.


DYNAFORM is a complete die system simulation solution which allows engineers to accurately simulate metal stamping to predict formability issues, validate die design and improve manufacturing efficiency reducing product development time and profitability. The system guides the engineer through blank size estimation blank nesting cost estimation, quoting die evaluation and formability analysis.

Dynaform 6.0 offers an all-new graphic user interface with combined pre-and post-processing capabilities. Users quickly can conduct sheet metal stamping simulations to estimate the blank cost and formability of stamping parts using gilded process wizards. In addition, new features are included, such as a simulation data manager and Microsoft PowerPoint-based automatic report generation. The new software also consists of simplified as well as advanced cUstomized features to reduce set-up time.

Dynaform 6.0 will improve the efficiency and productivity of stamping engineers with no prior experience in stamping simulation.

Developed by CADLM, ODYSSEE is a powerful platform which enables the use of Artificial Intelligence in Computer Aided Engineering with machine learning, data processing, signals processing, Image processing and recognition, data compression and data fusion, as well as data analytics.

With the help of reduced model order reduction techniques user can carry out Automotive Crash and safely analysis in real time with the animation. For a typical problem where FE analysis takes hours CADLM LUNAR can generate the results within a few seconds.
