Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH

The ever-present emphasis on reducing development times has necessitated the increasing reliance on computer-aided development and simulation. When introducing new processes or materials and when developing products, numerical computation methods are an effective way of optimising processes and improving product quality while also reducing costs.

The main focus of the department "Modelling and process simulation" at Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH is the design of tools and moulds and process simulation for casting and continuously extruding metals. We are working with state-of-the-art modelling software and have a broad range of programs and database systems at our disposal.
