Problem: As Rockwell Automation looked to improve product functionality, engineers relied on developing physical prototypes to test heat sink designs for its powerful microprocessor chips. This approach left mechanical engineers scrambling at the end of the design cycle to find an electronics cooling solution that would fit the prototypes and not delay new product releases.


Solution: Rockwell leveraged AltaSim’s extensive simulation expertise to quickly deliver accurate simulations through increasingly complex models for a wide range of product design calculations.


Result: AltaSim’s simulations enabled Rockwell to test electronics cooling solutions prior to the costly development of the first physical prototypes. This approach reduced Rockwell’s reliance on physical prototyping, driving down both the duration and cost of the design cycle.
