ESI Group (Paris: ESI), international participant in digital prototyping software program and providers for industries, launched its first international digital sequence of occasions with leaders of varied industries – ESI Stay. The target: share experiences in digital transformation, throughout trade sectors. Globalized competitors, shorter lead time, prices stress, stringent environmental rules, and the COVID-19 pandemic drive producers to innovate. Automotive, Aerospace, Heavy Equipment, Vitality… how does every trade break new floor to raised meet client expectations?
ESI Stay began on November fifth and continued with an Americas bonus session held on November 17th. These first occasions gathered over 600 attendees from throughout the globe and from all of the Group trade sectors, and much more because of the replays, which can be found now on-demand.
Amongst audio system taking a part of the occasion, within the Automotive sector:
– Atsushi Mizutani, Skilled chief, Manufacturing Engineering R&D Heart at Nissan Motors Company, demonstrated how digital prototyping is dashing up the event of automobile components made out of carbon fiber strengthened plastics (CFRP). Mild but extraordinarily robust, this materials might be used to make safer and extra fuel-efficient vehicles.
– Dr. Weiran Jiang, Simulation & Superior Modeling Director at Farasis Vitality. The Chinese language American battery supplier gained in record-breaking time a name for tenders made by a premium German automotive OEM. Because of ESI’s experience, the reliability of the digital prototype of the brand new Farasis battery model was decisive in a “zero real prototype” strategy stipulating the elimination of any bodily prototype.
– Dr. Jiri Svoboda, from the auditing and certification group TÜV SÜD, confirmed how, because of a technique combining bodily and digital testing, to make sure the efficiency and security of autonomous autos.
Within the Aerospace trade:
– Kaname Kawatsu, Affiliate Senior Researcher at Japanese Aerospace Exploration Company (JAXA), has relied on simulation to develop threat evaluation models analysis for inexpensive upkeep and area system robustness.
– Thierry Eftymiades, Senior Vice President Engineering at Latécoère, aeronautical gear producer, centered on the collaborative advantages of the digital actuality answer IC.IDO.
Immersion within the model permits their stakeholders across the globe to shortly applicable the long run product and perceive its interplay with its surroundings, from the primary steps of the challenge.

– Jean-Marie Hamy, Superior Reactors & Design Faculty Division Supervisor at Framatome, carried the ASTRID challenge for the implementation of digital actuality to design new nuclear reactors. IC.IDO made it potential to create on the identical time the design of future buildings in addition to their interconnection. The answer stood up because of its straightforward implementation and interoperability with CAD models coming from numerous sources. The outcomes met the targets: to facilitate “zero default” conception in a collaborative method, limit the variety of bodily interventions on the finish of processes, allow to simulate the mixing of complicated methods and operational feasibility in constrained environments, and at last to permit coaching of the completely different groups concerned within the challenge.
