Simulation is more than Software

Welcome to CADFEM UK and Ireland

CADFEM UK & Ireland Ltd are part of the international CADFEM Group which specialises in engineering simulation. We are an Elite ANSYS Channel Partner – we sell the full suite of ANSYS products and provide support, training, consultancy and IT services to ensure our customers maximise the benefit from simulating their designs and processes.

We have been in business since the 1990’s initially operating as IDAC Ireland Ltd and IDAC Ltd. (UK) respectively. We joined the CADFEM International group of companies, trading as CADFEM Ireland and CADFEM UK CAE Ltd., so as to be able to provide additional breadth and depth of simulation services to our growing list of Irish, UK and international clients.

Cumulatively, our ever increasing group of skilled and motivated staff have more than 150 years of experience in providing and supporting simulation led engineering solutions. Our expertise is spread across a wide range of engineering sectors: medical devices, renewable energy, pharmaceutical, aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, power engineering amongst others. Working with the ANSYS suite of simulation products we are expert in its customisation for particular engineering applications. In addition we have recently developed cloud based hardware solutions for our client base which enables flexible, economic and on demand access to high end computing resources over the web. We have expertise in linear and nonlinear, static and dynamic, implicit and explicit, stress analyses, steady state and transient heat transfer analysis, computational fluid dynamics analysis, fluid-structure analysis.

Have a look at our list of webinars coming up in the next few months

CADFEM offers a series of courses that give you the power to produce better simulations. Take advantage of instructors who have been working with the software for many years, in challenging projects, using techniques that are not always available in standard training materials. Learn what is useful and learn what to ignore!

Come on one of our scheduled courses or order customised training at your offices, using your own products, to maximise the potential for your future success.
