A multi-body simulation (MBS) is always the right simulation when several mechanical components interact with each other, i.e. a multi-body system has to be calculated using simulation. If an assembly is loaded with several components, interactions between the individual components occur. With the help of multi-body simulation, the resulting loads in the multi-body system can be determined and thus individual components can be dimensioned or entire drives can be designed, as in the case of a gearbox calculation. Furthermore, the question of the transmission of force from point A to point B can also be examined with this simulation.
The M.TEC engineers are specialized in multi-body simulation for the simulation and design of larger assemblies and drives.
Standard tasks in which multi-body simulation is used include the design of drives in medical technology products, control locks for cars and transmissions.
