Chennai: Mid-size two-wheeler major Royal Enfield has joined hands with Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE firm for optimising its design and product development lifecycle for all its motorcycle models and accessory range.

A release stated that Royal Enfield has performed a complete piston durability and high fidelity simulation of critical parts like powertrain and chassis using Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA applications on the for realistic simulation, before any prototyping.

Lead CAE and CAD, Royal Enfield, Rod Giles, said, “We have been using Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA applications to perform realistic simulation, before any prototyping in our product innovation, development and manufacturing processes. We have successfully launched India’s first twin engine motorcycle Interceptor and Continental 650 performing the complete piston durability using Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA. We have deployed solutions such as Abaqus, Isight, Tosca, fe-safe and Simpack to perform high fidelity simulation of critical parts like powertrain and chassis, at the design stage reducing significant costs and time in prototyping and in manufacturing.”

“Consumer expectations, regulatory bodies, international laws, environment concerns are constantly pushing OEMs and suppliers to innovate new products, designs, systems at much faster pace. In such circumstances real-time simulation of the vehicle, parts and components are critical reducing the time to market and cost of testing on physical prototypes,” said MD – India, Dassault Systèmes, Samson Khaou.
