To meet their goal of facilitating access to 3D Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) software to companies throughout Asia, the Taiwan-based engineering-analysis-software provider, CADMEN, have signed a distribution agreement that enables them to commercialize Rocky DEM in their territory. When asked why they selected Rocky DEM for this partnership, CADMEN Vice President, Johnson Liao, says, “The DEM capacity in Rocky is very impressive and provides the enhanced simulation coupled with ANSYS Mechanical and Fluent co-simulation that our CAE customers are asking for. Besides supporting our existing user base, we also expect Rocky DEM to generate new business opportunities for us in our market.”
Liao believes that customers who decide to invest in Rocky DEM will easily and rapidly use the program to resolve particle behavior issues in their existing CAE models. He also says that Rocky DEM technology will be easily introduced into their market, because CADMEN has in its portfolio only the best solution partners. “We are very honored to become Rocky’s business partner” he says. “New business relationships can grow through the simulations level and together go to the CAE market.”
Taiwan Auto-Design Company (TADC) was built in 1980 and our business logo is “CADMEN,” which stands for the “CAD, CAM, CAE and Network” businesses. Our CAE business history is more than 25 years old and in the past 3 years, our revenue has grown by 25%.
Rocky DEM, Inc. is the developer of Rocky, an advanced engineering program that uses Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) to predict the behavior of bulk solids and aids in the efficient design and optimization of material handling equipment and processes. Rocky DEM is capable of simulating realistic and concave particle shapes, particle breakage, boundary surface reduction due to wear, sticky and dry material contact laws, multiphysics, and more. Its explicit DEM solver uses either multi-core CPU or GPU processing that drastically reduces computational run times. Rocky DEM, Inc. is a joint GDI and ESSS enterprise.
