MSC Software Acquires Simufact Engineering

The company provides simulation platforms for metal forming and joining processes.

MSC Software has acquired Simufact Engineering. The company is a provider of simulation platforms for metal forming and joining processes, which are used in the automotive, aerospace and machinery industries.

According to a company press release, users of Simufact’s software state a 50% reduction of physical testing after implementation. Additionally, users have also reported a decrease in part development time from three weeks to one week.

The company’s main programs include Simufact.forming and Simufact.welding, which simulate a broad range of physics as well as being suited for process chain simulation. The platforms are FEA (finite element analysis) based.

“Too often, our customers tell me that poorly-understood manufacturing processes result in products that don’t function as designed and simulated,” said Dominic Gallello, president and CEO of MSC Software. “By connecting Simufact’s manufacturing process oriented tools to design simulation, we can better assist our customers with their drive for ‘first time right’.”
