F.tech R&D North America

F.tech R&D North America utilizes HyperView to investigate test results, using the data to inform decisions on methods to improve designs. This data will often be used to create reports and presentations during the development process, using images and animations generated by HyperView to illustrate particular areas of a component where additional work may be required. However, exporting these assets is a highly manual process of loading in results, positioning the model and taking screenshots. To allow its engineers to concentrate efforts on exploring and interpreting the results, F.tech R&D North America wanted a way of automating this process.

Automated Reporting Director

F.tech R&D North America Inc. started in 2003 at the Troy Ohio location. Today F.tech R&D North America features offices in Troy Michigan and Düsseldorf Germany. F.tech has full R&D capabilities from design and CAE, to prototyping and test. Products include subframes, suspension components, and pedals.

Mahle Discuss Its Use Of The Automated Reporting Director

A close collaboration was forged between MAHLE and Altair ProductDesign to create the automated reporting solution. While Altair ProductDesign developed the code, MAHLE described the current process and reporting requirements to ensure business alignment and an effective result. Previously, users had to create a HyperView session, adjust all the pictures, snap a picture of each desired view, bring the visual assets into PowerPoint, crop and place, go back and create call-outs, and re-examine results to create notes for the report; this is now a push button operation. Using ARD, MAHLE has successfully reduced time spent on non-engineering tasks, enabling CAE analysts to better utilize their time as engineers - yielding more analysis and better design.

Programmable, Open-Architecture HyperWorks Helps Toshiba Design Smaller Hard Disk Drives to Meet Market Demand

Toshiba Digital Network Company, faced with increasing global competition in the hard disk drive (HDD) marketplace, set out to create an advantage through the redesign of their existing HDD product(s). To support this effort, Toshiba partnered with Altair Engineering to automate its design process. This was accomplished by leveraging HyperWorks powerful modeling, visualization and optimization software applications with Toshiba’s proprietary solver for fluid dynamics. The specific goal was to optimize the air bearing surface (ABS) of the HDD’s magnetic head slider. This unique product development process resulted in minimizing the flying height as much as possible while considering its stability. This, in turn, reduced the overall size of the HDD and increased its recording density. In addition, the new design was brought to market in significantly less time than with Toshiba’s traditional design process.
