Find out more about Industrial Equipment Industry
Global trends and the market encourage engineers to improve industrial equipment, rotary machines and turbomachinery design, focusing on delivering performance with improved energy efficiency, safety, durability and range with lower cost and time to market. Energy-efficient rotary machines reduce carbon emissions, but thermal turbine engine design engineers should also address NOx, SOx, unburned hydrocarbon and soot emissions.

Gas compression and handling
Lower costs, higher productivity
Reducing energy consumption is an urgent issue for turbomachinery suppliers in automotive, chemical, oil and gas applications. Efficient compressors, turbines, pumps and fans reduce energy consumption and therefore increase operating costs. Low maintenance translates into low operating costs, hence a focus on reliability.
High efficiency and operational range with simulation
Efficiency, operational flexibility and reliability are critical parameters for hydraulic machines of all types. Hydraulic turbines should offer a very high efficiency while operating at an increase in operating range in order to switch more frequently. The requirements are similar for pumps, vehicle torque converters and marine liquid propulsion systems, including propellers.
Reduce costs and burn fuel
Reducing fuel burn for economic, operational and sustainable reasons is a fundamental requirement for most engines, auxiliary power units and gas and steam turbines. Low emissions, both carbon and non-carbon, respond to growing public environmental concerns and increased government legislation.
Wind, Propellers and Rotors
Energy and aerodynamic efficiency in your projects
A key aerodynamic feature of wind turbines, aircraft propellers and rotors is the lack of flow orientation due to the blade’s low strength, so reliability and safety are also paramount due to inaccessibility and human safety considerations. The challenge for engineers is to develop equipments that combine high aerodynamic efficiency with excellent durability, so the use of simulation is indispensable to develop products with high aerodynamic efficiency and robustness.
