ANSYS Solutions to Be Showcased at ACHEMA Exhibition for Process Industries
Conference Attendees to Discover How Simulation Driven Product Development(TM) Leads to Better Equipment and Process Design
SOUTHPOINTE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 27, 2009-- ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software and technologies designed to optimize product development processes, today announced that it will showcase its solutions for the chemical engineering, environmental protection and biotechnology industries at the 2009 ACHEMA Exhibition Congress, the highest-profile event of its kind worldwide. ACHEMA brings together representatives from some of the world’s most rapidly developing and technologically advanced industries, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food, chemical engineering and materials, and plant construction. Engineering simulation software from ANSYS is playing an increasingly significant role in these industries, with its ability to simulate applications for which physical experimentation may be complex or even impossible to perform, such as drug delivery and absorption in pharmaceuticals, emissions control and dispersal for environmental protection, and chemical reactions involved with material production and nuclear applications.
Based in Germany, ACHEMA attracts the largest attendance of any process industry event, with around 180,000 attendees expected from over 100 countries. ANSYS staff will highlight the specific and unique capabilities of its portfolio targeted for the process sectors. The technology plays an important role in helping companies in these fields to gain a critical depth of understanding of the processes involved. It plays a key role in compressing the development cycle, helping to speed lengthy approval processes and meet the stringent regulatory requirements that are often inherent in the process industries. Expert ANSYS technical staff will be on hand at ACHEMA to emphasize and explain the portfolio’s features relevant to key applications within each process industry. ANSYS will stage daily live demonstrations on topics including microfluids, plant optimization, mixing, industrial bio-engineering and bulk solids simulation.
“Software from ANSYS is now a valued tool for companies across all process industries. The technology is being utilized by some of the most innovative and respected organizations around the world to develop new products and processes, and to improve performance and reliability in scenarios where demonstrating safety and assuredness can be essential,” said Georg Scheuerer, regional vice president for continental Europe at ANSYS, Inc. “ACHEMA attendees will have the opportunity to put the power of ANSYS to work for them, whatever the application — fluid dynamics, structural, electromagnetic, hydrodynamic or thermal analysis.”
ANSYS will be in Hall 9.2, booth Q40 at ACHEMA, which takes place May 11 to 15 in Frankfurt, Germany.
