Pointwise Entering the Glass Industry via CelSian

FORT WORTH, TX (4 October 2019) – Pointwise has signed an agreement with CelSian Glass and Solar whereby they license Pointwise internally for their own use and can sell Pointwise worldwide to existing clients of GTM-X.

CelSian Glass and Solar, located in the Netherlands, develops, sells, and supports GTM-X, a solver for simulating the glass melting process for the glass manufacturing industry with accuracy and robustness unmatched by the competition. CelSian, along with their clients, required a mesh generation tool to generate high-quality structured meshes for their furnace geometries and other geometries encountered in the glass industry.

“We have been looking for an intuitive CFD preprocessing tool that improves our and our customer’s productivity and are very pleased to have found Pointwise,” said Harmen J. Kielstra. “With Pointwise we expect to lower the threshold for new customers to start using our software. Our team has been trained and now we are starting to implement the software in our own procedures, as well as train our new and existing customers. First results seem very promising.”

“We look forward to our relationship with CelSian and expanding Pointwise usage into a new industry with its own unique CFD preprocessing challenges. The CelSian team has many years of experience in the glass manufacturing industry and has developed excellent analysis tools,” said Rick Matus, Pointwise’s executive vice president.
