Manufacturing Machine Design

With our guidance for implementing multiphysics simulations, engineers who work with AltaSim Technologies bring their products to market more rapidly, at a lower cost, and with an optimized design. To help see how working with AltaSim impacts our clients, we have put together a brief case study of how our simulation experts provided a unique solution in a recent project.


A client of AltaSim’s is developing machinery for a novel manufacturing method they’re implementing that includes operating at high temperatures. Engineers are considering unique materials and cooling methods to develop a working machine design. The organization needed simulations they could use to make design decisions over the next six to eight weeks, but it has engineers with limited experience in solving complex multiphysics simulations, who were taking a long time to come up the learning curve and develop simulations.


Our client came to AltaSim for our extensive expertise in developing heat transfer and thermomechanical simulations in COMSOL Multiphysics. AltaSim developed initial simulations of the thermomechanical operation of the machinery including the flow of cooling liquid through the machine. AltaSim provided these simulation files to our client, trained their engineers on the techniques used in the simulations, and supported their engineers as they modified and extended the simulations to new design options.


Through working with AltaSim, our client was able to develop simulations that informed their machine design decisions within the required timeframe. In addition, the organization’s engineers developed new simulation skills that they will be able to apply to future projects. For less than $25,000, our client was able to have confidence in their simulations and develop designs with the highest reliability and consistency.

In addition to providing one-on-one training for our clients, AltaSim also trains engineers in a virtual classroom to develop simulations that answer their challenges. For more information on our classes visit our calendar.

We limit our classes to eight (8) students to maximize the attention each student receives. This limit causes our classes to fill up quickly. Our next available class for structural mechanics will be September 20 - 23, 2022.  To learn more about this course, click here.
