By using modern finite element software, WiCHMANN GmbH can now evaluate components and assemblies promptly with mathematical verifications.
This will enhance the company's development competence for the long term. The FEM software product being used is ANSYS Workbench. A special feature of the software is its integrated ability to automatically evaluate the results in accordance with the current FKM guideline.
Thus WiCHMANN GmbH can quickly and easily evaluate the FEM results statically and dynamically thanks to downstream FKM analysis. This increases component safety, especially for largely fatigue loaded components.
On request, a neutral FKM report can be issued, thus making a neutral performance comparison possible. It is also possible to import 3D CAD models directly into the FEM software to achieve uninterrupted virtual product processing.
