Simulation, a must in the medical sector

In the medical industry, numerical simulation has now become an essential and strategic tool for developing medical devices : it guarantees the precision, quality and safety of parts.
Transvalor solutions are particularly suitable for simulating high-precision processes for designing orthopedic implants surgical implants or medical devices.

 

Your main challenges

045-watch

Design "first-time-right" parts

Simulate to reduce the number of prototypes or experimental tests that are both costly and tedious. You can therefore reduce your material and energy costs.

014-control

Design "first-time-right" parts

Simulation allows you to avoid having producing several prototypes or having to conduct many experimental tests that are both costly and tedious. You can therefore reduce your material and energy costs.

042-health-insurance

Guarantee compliance with order and design brief specifications

Manufacture high-quality components in order to guarantee your customers the reliability and safety of your medical devices.

Main challenges

 

For forged components

Simulation is particularly suitable for simulating high-precision forging (near-net) for designing orthopedic implants (hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, dental implants, etc.) and  ancillaries that guarantee high-level physical and mechanical properties.

Moreover, you have a high performance predictive tool for simulating the entire forging range according to different processes: closed die forging, stamping, machining, heat treatment…

You can also improve the service life of your MDs (stents) by simulating their behavior under conditions of use.

Simulation can also be used for biomedical applications and makes it possible to anticipate mechanical stresses during bone distractions.

SIMHEAT® is a software devoted to simulate heat treatment processes of metal alloys including carbon steel and aluminum.

For casted components

Simulation is a tool to improve the performance of your medical devices (prostheses and orthopedic implants) made with investment casting process.

More specifically, simulating a lost wax casting process optimizes casting attacks and weighting. And taking into account the self-radiation, you will get more precise results.

For plastic components

By carrying out rheological studies, numerical simulation makes it possible to control your material flows and to validate the balance of the mold.
You therefore save cycle time and reduce your costs.

Testimonial

« The simulation fits perfectly into the development cycle of our products. In fine, it allow us to predict any modification in the forging sequence that would occur once the part is put into production.»
