Manitowoc Cranes adopts Ansys Solutions to Tweak Manufacturing Experience

Manitowoc Cranes

Manitowoc Cranes strengthens its safety and coequally mitigates design and production costs by using ANSYS engineering simulation solutions. The solution validated complete virtual prototypes of its lattice-boom towers and mobile-telescopic cranes.

Manitowoc Cranes’ engineers use ANSYS® solutions during the feasibility phase to optimize concepts proposed by designers. Engineers also use ANSYS simulation to analyze stress and force of welded connections, as well as to measure the integrity of larger crane structures and components such as booms, chassis, turntables and hydraulic cylinders.

Citing on the deployment, Craig Kollar, senior manager of engineering, Manitowoc Cranes said Standardizing simulation software across the company provides us with a number of significant benefits. Those advantages include faster integration of multiple design options, the ability to simulate a sequential manufacturing process using load steps, as well as faster and more accurate modeling. We no longer need to depend on hand calculations and internally developed software alone.

Brad Hutchinson, global industry director, industrial equipment and rotating machinery at ANSYS said, in the world of heavy lifting, safety and quality are of paramount importance. As an industry leader, Manitowoc Cranes understands the importance of delivering the highest quality products at the lowest price for these customer requirements – on time and at a competitive price. By using engineering simulation from ANSYS, the company can ensure their safety and quality promises are met.

Manitowoc Cranes has standardized on the ANSYS® simulation platform at its facilities in France, Germany and the United States.
