You strive for a construction with optimum properties and long service life at the lowest possible cost. If the geometry is too complex for reliable hand calculation, an analysis using the finite element method (FEM) may help. Using an FEM analysis, the mechanical properties and occurring stresses may be calculated accurately. This offers ample opportunities to efficiently optimise the design in terms of strength, deformation, weight, lifetime or the dynamic properties such as vibration, without the necessity of conducting tests and examinations.
For carrying out FEM analyses, Vicoma has expert engineers who also come up with solutions and improvements. We combine the specific knowledge you as a client have about the product with our knowledge of mechanics and computational technology. This leads to a maximally suitable design, without you having to worry about costs and delays that unforeseen problems may cause during installation or while using your machine.
