  • Interoperability of TRANSWELD® with CAE software using VMAP
    Transvalor carried out a case study with Faurecia Automotive Seating, who assembles lightweight components by laser welding for the manufacture of automotive seats.
    This study illustrates the potential gains associated with the new VMAP exchange format, including the simplification of operations chaining between “process” simulation and “crash” simulation. In the end, the standard VMAP exchange format is intended to be more efficient because it is more compact and very well documented, with the ultimate guarantee of strong interoperability for a wide range of CAE software.
