FEA?? “Finite Element Analysis” What does it mean to you?

In a perfect world, nothing would ever break, fall apart, overheat, buckle, or be destroyed… Unless we wanted it to when we’re ready to recycle it. However, this isn’t a perfect world, and I don’t have the same hairline I did when I was 25, so some things do fail at times when we don’t want them to!

So, what to do? Toupee or not Toupee? Well, unless you over engineer like in the “olden day’s” (as my 7 year old says) then you will have “To Pay” for failed product in the field and apologize to your customers for these failures.

If that’s the case, what’s the current process when over engineering? Do plenty of physical prototyping to make sure “our stuff works!”. However, this is very costly and time consuming to say the least. That is why more and more companies (even small companies today) are incorporating the use of FEA software to reduce the number of physical prototypes required to get closer to a reliable yet cost effective product.

So, what can you do to take the first step towards learning more about FEA?

 Come to a short Seminar at EngATech in two weeks, on April 28th, from 11:30am -1pm, so you can learn more about the FEA tool integrated with SolidWorks (SolidWorks Simulation) and how you can experience of the benefits of FEA at your company. In addition, you’ll get a free Rib Crib lunch while you’re here!  Click Here to Sign up Today.
