Dassault Systèmes has acquired SIMPACK, a technology leader in multi-body simulation technologies and solutions, in an all-cash transaction. With the acquisition of SIMPACK, Dassault Systèmes is expanding its SIMULIA realistic multiphysics simulation technology portfolio to include multi-body mechatronic systems, from virtual concept validation to the real-time experience.
SIMPACK has more than 130 customers in the energy, automotive, and rail industries, including Alstom, Bombardier, BMW, Daimler, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, MAN, and Vestas. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.
SIMPACK has demonstrated strong technology leadership, in particular through complex models, non-linear effects such as friction and flexible structures, efficient numerical algorithms, and real-time capabilities, Dassault said.
With SIMPACK technologies enhancing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Dassault Systèmes will provide a leading integrated solution for end-to-end development of advanced systems, combining realistic multi-physics simulation, accurate real-time simulation of mechatronic assemblies, and control of smart systems.
