FEA

  • FEA spring clip
    FEA spring clip
    Finite Element Analysis of spring clip. This design for low volume production makes use of additive technology - FEA was used to confirm the elastic behaviour of the clip over the the range production tolerances.
  • FEA elastomeric seal
    FEA elastomeric seal
    FEA used to confirm the behaviour of seals both initially and under applied pressure
  • FEA electrical contact
    FEA electrical contact
    FEA is invaluable for contact design enabling assessment of stress and insertion forces for a range of deflections.
Finite Element Analysis

We started using this analysis technique in the early 1990’s to help in the design of connectors for Hard Disc Drives.

Our FEA skills are now available to aid customers with their designs both during initial design or troubleshooting later on.  We find our engineering understanding is particularly useful to customers when interpreting the analysis results to arrive at a useful solution.

We now regularly use FEA during product design.

Our main FEA software uses the Nastran solver but we also use ANSYS and have used Strand in the past.
