Accelerate agricultural production, with more safety and lower costs
Our computational technologies and advanced simulation tools revolutionize agriculture, helping move crops from fields to tables. Optimizing everything from the performance of equipment and machinery, without the need for costly and time-consuming manufacturing stages, to those such as mixing, preparing, and storing the final products.
Cost-effective tools to ensure more safety and energy efficiency in your projects
Avoid equipment failure and increase the mechanical strength of components. Replicate conveyor geometries to simulate belt patterns, preventing a load from slipping at steep angles. Predict the interaction of harvesters, silos, and tractors with grains.
Soil cultivation, fertilization and seed propagation
Simulate soil preparation with tests on the efficiency and robustness of seed and fertilizer spreaders. Get accurate modeling of soil and seed behavior under a wide range of environmental conditions.
Harvesting, transportation and crop processing
Study the behavior of specific crops, such as hay, sugarcane, and wheat, with flexible fiber particle modeling and obtain data on stem breakage. Design a more efficient silo flow pattern by analyzing screen segregation during the filling process.
Mixing, preparation and storage of food supplies
Use proprietary computer modeling techniques to analyze interactions between food components, from the design of the processing equipment to the packaging of the final product. Improve homogeneity, eliminating particle degradation and erosion.
Bulk material handling
Eliminate particle degradation and erosion, and accurately predict the dynamic behavior of bulk materials. Use polyhedral models to eliminate artificially irregular surfaces that can significantly affect particle dynamics, optimizing processes.
Drying and Heat exchange
Accurately model heat exchange, drying, and liquid film spray injection processes to evaluate coating homogeneity. Combine fluid dynamic analysis and DEM to investigate convective heat transfer between particles and fluid.
Safe and sustainable processes
Create digital prototypes to optimize process efficiency, minimize wear and tear and equipment downtime. Reduce the time required for physical testing and the amount of scrap, while meeting international quality standards.
Variability in the characteristics of particulate materials
Understand the behavior of different particles to increase efficiency and productivity. Bulk material simulation uses realistic particle shapes, taking into account collisions and fluid forces, reducing mixing time and segregation.
"We have to apply more energy, use more automation, more software, more simulation, as we have been doing, to accelerate time-to-market. This is a very big opportunity for companies like Stara to recalibrate product development quickly and take this opportunity to get ahead. The company that does not see this, without a doubt, is making a very serious mistake. This is our vision and we keep on investing, we have a very high innovation rate here. Virtual simulations help a lot and will need to help more and more."
