Manage your project from the start
The efficiency of a product can be measured right from the design phase. To this end, and thanks to its digital lab approach, Geoconnectics offers a range of digital simulation solutions that can be used whenever your product is in CAD form (2D or 3D geometry).
We are equipped with a number of multiphysics software packages to couple phenomena of various kinds, for a more accurate result. In addition, physical tests corroborate the results obtained via digital simulation, so that you can rely on concrete calculations.
The benefits of digital simulation
Avoid unnecessary costs
Digital simulation saves money on a day-to-day basis, as no prototypes are needed to carry out the simulations.
In modern development processes, these CAD models exist no matter what. These models can be easily and quickly modified, for iterative studies without the additional cost of prototyping, so you can explore several avenues without fear of exploding development costs.
To go even faster
By opting for digital simulation, any errors in the choice of technology are immediately spotted. You can then correct them quickly, even before the prototype is created.
The possibility of quickly modifying models and subjecting them to new simulations reduces latencies and exchanges between a development team and a validation laboratory. Simulations can be carried out on several variants with a view to selecting the best one.
Limitation of resources
Focusing on what is necessary
Digital simulation is ideal for avoiding tooling problems. In many fields, such as connector technology, products include plastic parts whose geometry can be a decisive factor in product validation.
Producing plastic parts requires expensive moulds that are often difficult to modify afterwards.
By allowing you to dispense with prototypes, digital simulation spares you these plastics considerations.
Exploring other possibilities
Thanks to a sensitivity study, various parameters can be optimised: geometry, materials, sizing, etc. The ease with which simulations can be played and replayed means that original scenarios can be envisaged that would otherwise have been ruled out.
It is possible to run several simulations by changing the geometry of the part or the materials. For example, you can easily see the benefits of choosing a gold coating rather than a tin coating.
