Altair to present Digital Transformation Solutions for Industrial Machinery at Hannover Messe 2021

Convergence of simulation, HPC, and AI will lead to more efficiency and better industrial machinery

TROY, Mich, March 9, 2021 — 

Altair (Nasdaq: ALTR), a global technology company providing solutions in simulation, high-performance computing (HPC), and artificial intelligence (AI) will present its solutions for digital transformation in industrial machinery at Hannover Messe 2021, held virtually April 12-16, 2021

Altair’s virtual booth will showcase use cases and demonstrations of accurate virtual prototypes propelled by AI-driven decision making, HPC, and cloud enablement. Visitors will be able to hold discussions with Altair experts and attend the company’s digital conference, “ATCx – Digital Transformation for Industrial Machinery,” which will be hosted in parallel with Hannover Messe activities on April 14, 2021.

ATCx will feature workshops and presentations from customers, partners, and Altair experts, exploring state-of-the-art engineering strategies and trends, particularly the convergence of simulation, process data, and HPC enabling AI decision making. Global leaders from industries including textile packaging, tooling, autonomous robotics, and more will present development strategies addressing machine building industry challenges and showcase why they set simulation at the core of their innovation strategy.

“Altair is well positioned to support the digital transformation happening with forward-thinking organizations in the industrial machinery sector,” said Dr. Pietro Cervellera, senior vice president, EMEA operations at Altair. “We are proud to offer the combined power of simulation, HPC, and AI, enabling machine makers to increase efficiency, quality, and innovation while reducing risk and time-to-market.”

The presentations and technology workshops will:

  • Highlight how simulation strategies are applied to ensure end-product quality and help attendees understand the entire process.
  • Show examples of how to represent a machine’s mechatronic system behavior to correctly size motors and mechanisms, and to securely increase cycle rates, while maintaining accuracy, precision, and robustness.
  • Detail how system simulation optimizes the influence of processes and a machine’s controls system to enable virtual commissioning. 
  • Explain how existing data can be managed and leveraged to enable AI-driven decision making.

The conference will provide valuable education for project managers, engineers, data scientists, and decision makers to learn more about digital transformation while connecting experts from electrical and mechanical design, control engineering, and simulation departments.
