Bottero Chooses Altair HyperWorks Simulation Platform for Development of Glass Production Lines

Bottero to use HyperWorks simulation and optimization technology to develop

        innovative new products and solutions for the glass industry



    TROY, Mich., July 25 /EMWNews/ -- Altair Engineering, a leading

global provider of technology and services that empower client innovation

and decision-making, announced today that Bottero, a world leader in the

design and construction of hollow and flat glass production lines, has

selected Altair HyperWorks as their preferred computer-aided engineering

(CAE) suite for the optimization and verification of structural components

used in their production lines. Bottero's short-term goals include the

introduction of an innovative product line and the development of advanced

forming-machine solutions. The company chose HyperWorks because it offers a

complete solution for the simulation and optimization of mechanical

components.



    "Because of this software choice we expect to shorten our development

cycle and reduce the number of physical prototypes we build," said Claudio

Borsarelli, technical manager of the Bottero S.p.A. Hollow Glass division.

"We will now be able to fill our customers' needs in the shortest time

possible. Our machines are always customized to end-user requirements, so

it's not always possible for us to rely on existing models in serving our

customers."



    "The glass market is expanding strongly. We envision the introduction

of new technologies in our entire product line in the short term, so we

need to simulate the entire production system under different usage

conditions to make sure that all aspects of the design are thoroughly

worked out. We are confident that the solutions offered within HyperWorks

will help us to make this happen," he continues.



    "We are very pleased with Bottero's choice of HyperWorks," said Cosimo

Panetta, managing Director of Altair Engineering, Italy. "Our software

suite will help Bottero engineers to develop products faster and satisfy

their customers' timeline requirements. Companies in the packaging industry

value the capabilities of HyperWorks, because they cover almost every

aspect of the development cycle and help make engineering decisions

possible earlier in the design cycle. They will therefore help to reduce

Bottero's product development time and reduce prototyping costs while

ensuring even higher product quality."
