e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software company, and a specialist in multi-scale modelling of composite materials and structures, announced a collaboration with Brightlands Materials Center, a leading R&D center in the field of polymeric materials.

With this collaboration, e-Xstream engineering will further develop its Digimat platform to improve the predictive modeling of the performance of 3D printed and composite parts. Brightlands Materials Center will develop material models that describe material behavior during long term ageing under dynamic loading.

“We are very honored about this partnership with Brightlands Material Center. We both share the same long term vision in the fields of Lightweight Automotive and Additive Manufacturing. Thanks to their strategic role and high visibility in the industry, which is requiring more innovative material solutions, Brightlands Materials Center will provide e-Xstream engineering with extra bandwith on the R&D-level and a deeper insight into the material modeling needs of our customers, especiallly for theBenelux market.” says Serge Van Den Heuvel, Business Development Manager at e-Xstream engineering.

‘We are excited to start this partnership with e-Xstream engineering. This collaboration provides us with valuable insights into the needs and challenges of application design in the industry, including Tiers, OEMs, and equipment suppliers. e-Xstream’s platform approach fits well with our shared research programs to accelerate product and application development.’, said Marnix van Gurp, Managing Director of Brightlands Materials Center.
