New Partnership Provides Advanced Virtual Testing Solutions

GSC Partners with Dassault Systèmes to Add SIMULIA to its Simulation Solution Offerings

Graphics Systems Corp. (GSC), a leading provider of 3D engineering software, training and consulting, announces the expansion to its solution portfolio with SIMULIA, a powerful and complete simulation tool from Dassault Systèmes. Provided by Graphics Systems' GSC Enterprise Solutions division, the SIMULIA product line offers advanced solutions for performing virtual testing with realistic simulation. Simulation has become a critical part of the product development process, as it helps organizations lower costs by reducing physical prototypes and identifying potential problems early in the development process.

"We're very excited to bring SIMULIA's advanced analysis tools to our customers," says Madhav Puppala, Director of Simulation Products & Services at GSC. "The SIMULIA product line offers a lot of new capabilities like topology optimization, low-cycle fatigue, and difficult-to-characterize materials like foams, concrete and many other materials."

These new applications are a natural complement to the elements currently found in the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite. "SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a great tool for its ease-of-use and the speed at which analyses can be setup. When you have some highly non-linear problems that require a little more under the hood, that's where SIMULIA comes in," states Puppala.

Designers, engineers, and researchers in a broad range of industries use SIMULIA's scalable simulation solutions. The Abaqus product suite from SIMULIA has long been the best-in-class Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and multiphysics solution for insight into challenging engineering problems. The SIMULIA portfolio also offers state-of-the-art technology in topology, shape, bead and sizing optimization (Tosca), fatigue analysis (fe-safe) as well as simulation automation and parametric optimization (Isight). SIMULIA is available now to purchase through GSC.

GSC will showcase the SIMULIA product line in a complimentary webinar on January 14, 2016 at 10:00 AM (CST). To learn more and register, please visit or call 800-454-2233.

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital - E4T Miniature Optical Kit Encoder

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
