Engineering Mechanics Corporation of Columbus (Emc²) and its partners developed a cloud-based tool called Virtual Fabrication Technology (VFT) that simulates welding processes employed in the manufacture of metallic products.
“Small and medium-sized manufacturing firms need improved weld-fabrication processes to ensure improved quality at lower costs to remain globally competitive. We are developing a sophisticated high performance computing based tool and making it accessible to these firms from a supercomputer center to easily permit use of these tools at affordable prices.”
