Traditionally, decision-making in manufacturing is based on the manufacturer’s experience or test data, which makes gaining manufacturing improvements a time-consuming and costly ordeal. Computer modeling and simulation has changed that. With the help of modeling and simulation, manufacturers can perform “what-if” tests to evaluate their approaches and optimize manufacturing decisions. Time and cost spent in trial-and-error or testing is drastically reduced, and manufacturing improvements can be realized much sooner.
EWI WeldPredictor™ is EWI’s award-winning, proprietary tool for weld modeling and simulation. It allows our customers to evaluate countless welding scenarios quickly and easily using just a computer and an Internet connection. With EWI WeldPredictor, you can understand thermal cycles, microstructure, distortion, and stress evolution without performing extensive design of experiments – saving you valuable time and expense.
