ENGYS and CAE Solutions Corporation have entered into a formal distribution agreement with immediate effect to commercialise and support the world-leading open source based CFD products HELYX® and HELYX-OS in Japan. The news come after the highly successful introduction of ENGYS' products at the OpenCAE Seminar in Tokyo last June, where both ENGYS and CAE Solutions delivered presentations highlighting the many advantages of HELYX® and HELYX-OS for engineering analysis and multi-physics simulations.
The growing interest from both industry and academia to utilise more cost-effective, scalable and well supported CFD solutions has prompted ENGYS to develop a comprehensive set of open source based software products to tackle these stringent requirements. CAE Solutions Corporation extensive knowledge of OPENFOAM®, combined with their proven expertise in the use of many commercial CAE tools, provides the perfect channel to deliver ENGYS' software products to the Japanese market with the best possible local technical support, training and after-sales service.
Dr. Eugene de Villiers, Managing Director at Engys, said: "CAE Solutions long term commitment to supporting and developing open source CAE software solutions for the Japanese industry is very much in line with ENGYS own business model and working philosophy. We see in this partnership a great opportunity to offer our products in Japan as the best-in-class open source based CFD solutions in the market. The introduction of HELYX and HELYX-OS to Japan will provide unique, cost-effective, customisable, widely validated and well supported open source based CFD solutions for solving real industrial applications and cost-effective CAE products and services."
