Atec employs the latest tools in desktop engineering to develop and analyze our designs and those of our customers. We have been doing competition FEA since 1988, and have won awards and contracts based on our FEA expertise. Atec’s engineers create solid models using SolidWorks® design software and conduct Finite Element Analysis using CosmosWorks™ on the same model. Using these tools, design changes can be integrated quickly and the effects upon system strength and deflection may be evaluated with ease. Atec’s engineers are also able to use the same SolidWorks® model to test new mechanism designs using CosmosMotion™. Atec continues to employ the COSMOS/M™ Finite Element Analysis package for legacy work.
