altair acqAltair has acquired Componeering Inc., a Helsinki, Finland-based technology company specializing in structural analysis and design of composite structures. Componeering, now Altair Engineering Finland Oy, is the developer of ESAComp composites simulation software. Originating through a European Space Agency (ESA) project, today ESAComp is a staple technology throughout the aerospace industry and has expanded to just about every industry where composite material structures are found, including marine, automotive, rail transportation, alternative energy and machinery to name a few. The initial collaboration between Altair and Componeering was prompted by a mutual client, RUAG Space, who approached Altair to see if it was possible to transfer data between the two software packages. This kick-started the joint-development of a bi-directional interface to meet the customer's
needs. "Altair HyperWorks and ESAComp are an essential part of RUAG's composite analysis process. We're looking forward to experience the tighter integration between the two products to further streamline the process and eliminate unnecessary breaks in the data flow", said Ralf Usinger, Manager Innovation & Industrialization, RUAG Space (CH). Franck Mouriaux, General Manager, Structures RUAG Space, added, “This achievement is another successful outcome of the close collaboration between Altair and RUAG Space. Read More
