Overview

Case_Study_Design_and_Development_Optimisation_Image01Bühler Motor Group is a global enterprise focused on developing and manufacturing sophisticated mechatronic DC drive solutions. As a leading Tier 2 supplier of the automotive industry, Bühler specializes in innovative motion and fluid control systems for interior, heating, x-by-wire, powertrain, air suspension and many other applications. In addition to supplying the automotive industry strategic markets, the company provides solutions to the aviation sector (for example, aircraft seat adjustments) and the marketplace in general (for example, vending machines, office technology, medical technology and more). In anticipation of the demands of the future, Bühler’s engineering staff is creating applications for motion.

Challenges

  • Bühler aims to develop and market and new innovative products.
  • Prior to the first prototypes, methods and processes are analyzed and optimized.
  • The aim is to decrease time required for design and development.

Solution

  • Bühler uses innovative products from the ANSYS suite.
  • ANSYS Mechanical and ANSYS Emag show the flux density, power and torque characteristics of Bühler motors, and therefore enable the company to employ materials optimally.
  • Similarly, ANSYS Structural pinpoints significant stress areas and maximum deformation of the products under load.

Benefits

  • Designs reach the highest possible optimisation level.
  • All products are safe and conform to standards.
  • In some cases, the prototype becomes the final product meeting all required workloads, specifications and limits.
  • Test and simulation agree in a positive way.
