Heavy Machinery & Equipment
Excavator arm integrated into multi-body dynamics model
The traditional challenges of heavy equipment engineering involve designing products to safely and effectively perform in harsh environments and under extreme conditions. Today, these challenges are amplified by a heightened demand from customers and regulatory agencies to meet standards for comfort related to noise and vibration.

Our applications are used by many of the most successful companies in the heavy equipment industry to meet these challenges while shortening design cycles and reducing reliance on physical prototypes and tests. The bottom line for them is better, more competitive products and reduced product development costs.
