MT Aerospace Chooses Altair HyperWorks to Optimize CAE Product Development Process

    Advanced CAE tools help German manufacturer front load development
    processes by optimizing component structure and shape before the final

    TROY, Mich., June 25 /CNW/ -- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global
provider of technology and services that empower client innovation and
decision-making, today announced that MT Aerospace AG - a supplier of
components and subsystems for the aerospace industry and a systems supplier
for antennas and mechatronics - has chosen the Altair HyperWorks suite of
software solutions to optimize its product development processes. The company
will implement HyperWorks tools within the design and optimization processes
of its advanced aerospace components and, in doing so, will frontload the
development process. In addition, the company will use HyperMesh for pre- and
post-processing tasks, as well as to modify models for finite-element (FE)
    "We have chosen HyperWorks, because optimization is becoming a growing
issue within our industry," said Dr. Ulrich Clormann, director of the
engineering department at MT Aerospace AG. "Besides simulating and testing the
function of our components, HyperWorks will enable us to optimize their
structure and shape before the final design. The HyperWorks suite offers us
more functionality and higher productivity than the tools we have been using
so far."
    Altair HyperWorks is an integrated CAE framework containing best-in-class
solutions for the complete virtual product development process. HyperWorks not
only contains powerful FE and multi-body simulation solutions. It also
delivers an open, programmable platform that is easy to integrate into
existing processes. Altair OptiStruct is a highly advanced FE-based software
for both structural analysis and design optimization. OptiStruct is used to
design, evaluate and improve performance of mechanical structures. Altair
HyperMesh is a high-performance FE pre- and post-processor for popular FE
solvers. The software enables engineers to analyze product design performance
in a highly interactive and visual environment.
    "MT Aerospace's decision to integrate HyperWorks into their product
development process is clear evidence of the ongoing trend toward using
HyperWorks tools within the aerospace industry," said Dr. Detlef Schneider,
managing director of Altair Engineering, Germany. "More and more companies are
re-evaluating the tools they are currently using, and have chosen to implement
HyperWorks to update and improve their development processes. Using this
advanced technology is rapidly becoming a critical element in remaining
competitive in the marketplace."
