Kinematics and Finite Element Analysis

Artech Engineering Inc has conducted Engineering studies that integrates kinematic data with Finite Element Analysis so that complete load histories are considered. The following press drive component is part of a special linkage that applies full tonnage across three points of support. The large bore includes non-linear interface elements (gaps) for a more accurate solution.
