Predict and optimize product performance for appliance, sport equipment and food production companies.

Large mass manufacturing driven by increasing demand for low cost and reliable products is one of the key challenges of the consumer goods industry. To cope with short life cycles of the products, companies make extensive use of simulation to reduce the time-to-market and production costs. Our technology enables engineers to automate the simulation process, identify optimum solutions and reduce the need for physical testing.

Food production

Reducing the weight of coffee capsules was one of the key challenges for engineers at illycaffè to decrease plastic consumption and carbon footprint. Consequently, they had to redesign capsule geometry while adhering to strict physical constraints. modeFRONTIER helped them identify the optimal geometric configuration leading to the use of 0.35g less plastic and lower CO2 emissions by 0.07kg per capsule.
