EDEM technology complements LMS Virtual.Lab Motion by providing new insights into equipment – material interactions.
Edinburgh, Scotland – June 14, 2016 – EDEM announces it has joined the Siemens PLM Software Solution Partner Program as a Software and Technology Partner
EDEM and Siemens have developed a co-simulation capability between EDEM and LMS Virtual.Lab™ Motion software tools. This solution provides manufacturers of heavy equipment such as dragline buckets, backhoe loaders and excavators with new insights into machine-material interaction.
The solution allows engineers to introduce realistic bulk material behaviors to their multi-body dynamics simulations, and offers unrivalled insight into how material loads are transferred throughout a mechanical system. This coupled solution results in optimized equipment design, reduced physical testing, reduced time to market and improved design quality.
Richard LaRoche, CEO of EDEM commented: “EDEM is excited to join Siemens PLM Software’s partner community. The strength of our two organizations working together will deliver significant value to our customers.”
Willy Bakkers, Vice President – Head of 3D Simulation Division, Siemens PLM Software added: “Siemens PLM Software is committed to creating partnerships to help enhance the end-user experience of our customers. We are pleased to work with EDEM to provide open, integrated solutions that improve the productivity of our mutual customers.”
EDEM is the market-leading Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation. EDEM simulation technology is used for ‘virtual testing’ of equipment that handles or processes bulk materials in the mining, equipment manufacturing and process industries. Companies worldwide use EDEM to optimize equipment design, increase productivity, reduce costs of operations, shorten product development cycles and drive product innovation.
Founded in 2003, EDEM is a global company headquartered in Edinburgh, UK with offices in USA and Japan and supported by a network of channel partners in Asia-Pacific, South America and South Africa. The executive team is Richard LaRoche – Chief Executive, Ian Williamson – Chief Revenue Officer and Gordon Grant – Chief Financial Officer.
