Phoenix Business Journal: How the International Business Climate in the Medical Device Industry is Changing

pbj-phoenix-business-journal-logoAfter attending the Medica/Compamed 2015 shows in Dusseldorf, Germany, we summarized the experience in this article for the Phoenix Business Journal.  As the title says, it covers “How the International Business Climate in the Medical Device Industry is Changing.” and what companies need to do to keep up with the changes.

Ready to go for Turbo Expo 2013 in San Antonio

booth2The PADT and Flownex teams have our booth set up and ready to go for the next three days at Turbo Expo 2013.

This is always one of our favorite events because most of us came from this industry, and in fact all four of the founders were turbine-engine-engineers before we started PADT.  A special part of this years event is that we are introducing Flownex to the North American Turbo community as well as our CUBE HVPC computer systems.  So lots of new things to talk about along with our established offerings of ANSYS, Inc software consulting, customization, and training.

If you are there, please make sure you stop by our booth. We would love to see you and chat.

 

Here is our press release on the event:

Trusted Partners for Turbomachinery Simulation

p1

The ASME Turbo Expo is the industry show where PADT feels at home the most.  Founded by experienced turbine engine simulation, design, and manufacturing engineers, the company has a true understanding of the real world needs of those who are focused on simulation for Turbomachinery.

Our primary focus for this year’s conference will be the full introduction of the Flownex Simulation Environment to North America.  This thermal-fluid system simulation tool started life as a solver for combustor analysis, and has grown up to be a full featured toolset that can model any fluid-thermal network in your engine or pump.  Flownex is ideal simulation software for the quick thermo-fluid analysis of gas turbine performance.

It provides aircraft engine design and system engineers with the ability to simulate complicated air and gas flow patterns through fans, compressors and turbines; match compressor and turbine power and compile maps; calculate thrust, shaft power, combustion calculations with convection, conduction and radiation heat transfer; and determine fuel consumption.  If you are using an in-house tool or software written for other applications to model your flow networks, please come by to see how Flownex can reduce the amount of time you spend modeling your systems while increasing the fidelity of your models.s grown up to be a full featured toolset that can model any fluid-thermal network in your engine or pump.  Flownex is ideal simulation software for the quick thermo-fluid analysis of gas turbine performance.

PADT’s reputation in the Turbomachinery industry is built on our expertise selling, using, supporting, and customizing the complete suite of ANSYS FEA and CFD.  Turbo companies come to us for training on ANSYS software, customization of analysis tools, FEA and CFD outsourcing, and HPC hardware because they know we know their business and how to maximize the return on their investment in simulation.  We can help anyone doing simulation on Turbomachinery in a variety of ways, stop on by to find out how.

Another new area the PADT provides this type of help to turbo companies is by offering a complete line of High Value Performance Computer systems specifically designed for the simulation user.  From workstations to large clusters, PADT can custom design a system that hits the sweet spot between cost and performance, delivering faster turnaround of CFD and FEA runs for considerably less than systems offered by general purpose computer suppliers.

Stop by our booth to look at the hardware, software, training, and consulting that we offer to companies around the world to help them make their studies more efficient and effective.

PADT-AZBio-2013-Sponsors

Last week was AZBio Expo 20113 here in Tempe Arizona.  PADT was pleased to be a sponsor and we had a great time meeting with all of our customers and vendors at the event, as well as getting to chance to meet some new people. It is always an honor to be listed with so many great sponsors, and this event was no exception.

PADT-AZBio-2013-Booth

For our booth, we brought some examples of projects that we have done recently as well as one of our Stratasys Dimension 3D Printers, so that we could show off how we can make medical grade prototypes directly from CAD.

The highlight of the event was the keynote speech by Dr. Slepian from SynCardia spoke.    SynCardia is a customer that PADT has always been very proud to work with, and hearing about the progress that they are making was inspiring.
