Catching Design Issues Early with Virtual Reality
Why incur time delays and sudden costs fixing unexpected problems on your assembly line when you can evaluate designs and spot potential errors before you begin construction? No physical mock-ups required, no waiting for a physical product to be produced and evaluated, and if you have more than one site, no time-consuming and costly travel arrangements. Find out how Nexteer Automotive improved the quality and performance of their assembly equipment by stepping inside the virtual world - and how you can do the same.

For Nissin Kogyo, ESI ProCAST is an Indispensable Tool for Assuring Production Quality
As lightweight materials become more reliable, automotive OEMs depend on them more to reduce the weight of their automobiles. Naturally, that trickles down to their suppliers who now struggle to incorporate lightweight materials into their castings without sacrificing on quality, performance or durability. So how do suppliers keep up with the demands the industry puts on them while keeping their good name? We’ll tell you how the Japanese automotive parts company, Nissin Kogyo, did it and gained even more confidence from customers like Honda and Toyota.

How to Fight Range Anxiety with Zero Prototypes
Range anxiety is a leading cause of why consumers remain hesitant to make the switch from traditional combustion to electric vehicles. In turn, frustrations mount for manufacturers as they test new solutions to alleviate this issue. The automotive French start-up Gazelle Tech was one such manufacturer until they found a solution that solved their problem, reducing energy consumption of their vehicle by half and making their vehicle one third the weight of its competition.

A Smarter Battery Management System
Data-driven Battery Management Systems (BMS) models become inaccurate over time due to degeneration and environmental changes. Physics-based BMS models are often too slow to provide useful real-time information. Alone, each have their issues; together they create a BMS model with huge potential gains. Hybrid Twin™ combines both models to produce a real-time, accurate system. Find out why this is what you need to reassure your customers that they’re getting the best monitoring and predicting BMS.
