Metso and Ansys collaborate to drive product development

Its access to Ansys’ simulation platform will accelerate early design exploration and drive product development. It also enables Metso to move beyond creating complete digital prototypes and expand the boundaries of simulation upfront in the development process into digital exploration.

The agreement gives Metso access to Ansys’ multiphysics simulation platform to design and develop a range of products serving the oil and gas, pulp and paper and process industries. Metso will also have flexible licence access and expert services to enable unrestricted collaboration to digitally model, simulate and test its innovative products.

Early design decisions lock in close to 80% of a product’s development costs. With ANSYS’ digital exploration capabilities, Metso can test hundreds of possible concepts early in the design phase and quickly assess a number of product performance requirements.
