Advanced Design Technology Signs CADFEM GmbH as TURBOdesign Suite Distributor

Advanced Design Technology (ADT), a global leader in the design of unique turbomachinery design software TURBOdesign Suite, is delighted to announce that CADFEM GmbH and ADT LTD have reached agreement for CADFEM to distribute TURBOdesign Suite in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

“We are very pleased to be working with CADFEM,” said Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, Managing Director of ADT. “CADFEM is a major player as an ANSYS reseller in many countries, particularly in DACH countries, and the close integration of TURBOdesign Suite and ANSYS Workbench provides an excellent opportunity to use those close links with the turbomachinery industry. This partnership will help support customers in the DACH region and their need for advanced turbomachinery design tools based on 3D Inverse Design. It will also help many companies in the DACH region to benefit from higher performance, faster development time and quicker multi-point, multi-objective, multi-disciplinary optimization offered by TURBOdesign Suite coupled with ANSYS Workbench.”

“Many of CADFEM’s turbomachinery customers need to design high performance turbomachines that meet multi-point, multi-objective and multi-disciplinary requirements and ADT’s TURBOdesign Suite offers the best solution on the market. It provides a rapid method for development of high-performance turbomachinery, can be closely integrated with ANSYS workbench and is particularly suited to new manufacturing methods such as additive manufacturing.” said Jurgen Vogt, Managing Director of CADFEM GmbH.

TURBOdesign Suite is a unique turbomachinery design software package based on 3D Inverse Design technology. TURBOdesign Suite helps engineers significantly cut design time and cost to create breakthrough designs for all types of turbomachinery components, from pumps and hydraulic turbines to fans and blowers, compressors and high-speed turbines.

Using the software, designers evaluate turbomachinery package size and performance predictions; perform detailed 3D blade design with 3D inverse design capabilities; analyze flow information per component; stage performances with turbomachinery specific 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD); and automate exploration of the design space with automatic optimization capabilities.

Effective June 1st, 2020, CADFEM GmbH will be responsible for the commercialisation of TURBOdesign Suite in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
