Technology can be a powerful tool…

Using the latest 3D solid modeling software, Fitz-Thors is able to design and test your solution before it is manufactured. 3D solid modeling allows us to check the design for errors or oversights, before the final product is manufactured, eliminating unnecessary material and labor cost. The design validation consists of the following:

  • Full assembly simulation
  • Tolerance stack-up
    • Assures proper fit and function
  • Product failure prediction
  • Predict buckling and collapse
  • Heating and cooling simulation
  • Drop test and impact
  • Nonlinear dynamics
  • Simulate loading effects
    • Varying speeds, frequency, etc.
  • Plastic part simulation
  • Based off of COSMOS Design Star FEA
