EMWorks: Electro-Mechanical and RF/Microwave Simulation for SOLIDWORKS


[Monthly Partner Product Spotlight]

Written in conjunction with Rick Seidler, Channel Development Manager, EMWorks

What is Electro-mechanical simulation?

Using EMS (Electro-mechanical simulation) for SOLIDWORKS, users can accurately compute the effects and forces acting on components due to electrical currents, permanent magnets or electromagnets. This type of simulation has numerous applications ranging from solenoid designs, electric motor designs, electrical machine design like transformers and inductors, magnetic array design, insulator design for high power application, magnetic shield design, induction heating, inductive charging etc.

The applications for Electro-mechanical simulation span across industries such as transportation, machine design, solenoids, coils, defense, automotive, bio-medical, electronics, consumer products and power.
