Altair aims to inspire manufacturers to develop lightweight technologies


Established in 1985 in Detroit, USA, Altair is a global technology company that provides software and cloud solutions in the areas of product development, high-performance computing (HPC) and data intelligence. Promoting lightweight technologies, Altair is going to showcase its latest innovations at LWT 2019, part of the mega expo at Chennai MMTS 2019 which will be held from 28th to 30th of November 2019.

Rohit Sadalge, Marketing Director at Altair Engineering India Private Limited spoke to Machine Maker, showered light on their vision in light-weighting technologies. Altair makes simulation software for automotive, aerospace, or any highly engineered product to be used for product development. According to Mr. Sadalge, while designing a component, the idea is to make it as lightweight as possible without compromising the quality. He shares, “We help design and simulate lightweight components either with plastics, metals alloys or any other component”.

Altair has been a regular participant at the GDC Tech and LWT events earlier but is positively look forward to MMTS bringing all related and relevant subjects under one roof.

“During the event, we will be showcasing two latest software: – “Altair Inspirewhich is designed to develop lightweight technologies and “Altair Inspire Castfor designing Gravity Die-castings. 

Altair is gearing up for the transition of IC Engine automobiles to electric vehicles. As engines dominate fuel-powered vehicles, battery plays a significant role in EVs. Both types of vehicles are completely different when it comes to design, analysis, weight distribution, power train, etc. With the addition of electric power-train, the entire structure of the automobiles will be changed. The weight distribution of batteries is also a big issue in electric vehicles. Automobile manufacturers need to design completely new vehicles that are lightweight enough to extend the range of batteries.
