Altair, Troy, Michigan, USA, has unveiled the full agenda for its 9th European Altair Technology Conference (ATC), to be held at the Congressforum, Frankenthal, Germany, June 26 – 28, 2017. The conference’s opening day will offer insights into product development solutions for engineering domains such as mechanical, fluid, Additive Manufacturing, electromagnetics and system simulation with in-depth information on four different simulation related topics.

The conference’s motto, ‘Learn from the Best’, is said to be reflected in four sessions on maximising the efficiency of dynamic machines, design for Additive Manufacturing, efficient development of electrical devices, shortening time-to-market and increasing product efficiency with next generation math & system modeling will offer presentations from Altair’s experts and customers. Customer presentations will come from companies such as: EOS, Schneider Electric, CEG Elettronica, XLDyn, ABB, Fraunhofer Institut für Produktionstechnik und Automatisierung, RWTH-ISEA and many more.

In addition to the four industry sessions, an Academic Day will also held on June 26 and will include presentations from leading R&D institutions and Universities.

A full day of the event will be dedicated to keynote presentations, including vision and strategy presentations from Altair’s executive board and customers such as Airbus, Airbus Helicopters, Artemis, Daimler, Israeli AirSpace Industry, Opel, Porsche, Renault Trucks and Streetscooter. These customer presentations will focus on best practices simulation and product development methods for the aerospace, automotive and other industries, delivering insights into Simulation-driven InnovationTM techniques.

On the third and final day of the conference, in-depth technical presentations will be given by experienced users of Altair solutions, in eight parallel sessions. The topics of day three are:

  • Optimisation in car design
  • NVH & Acoustic
  • Structures & Optimisation
  • CRASH & Drop Test
  • Processes
  • CFD
  • Motion & Durability
  • Electromagnetics

Presenters come from companies such as: Adam Opel AG, GME Engineering, Alstom, Anadolu Isuzu Automotive Company, Avtovaz  BMW Group, Bruel & Kjaer, CIKONI, Ford Otosan A.Ş, GNS Systems GmbH, Kathrein, NEVS, Rheinmetall Automotive, RUAG Schweiz AG, Siemens AG Austria, Tadano Faun GmbH, Volkswagen Osnabrück GmbH and many more.
