Materials testing provider Element has launched Element Digital Engineering, to provide simulation, modelling, data science and artificial intelligence services to clients in the aerospace sector.
The new division supplies capabilities including digital twinning, machine learning, and mathematical optimization in addition to the existing services the company offers in finite element analysis, engineering critical assessment and Element’s extensive range of physical testing services.
The launch follow’s Element’s acquisition of an engineering and modelling simulation company based in Cambridge, UK, called Double Precision Consultancy, earlier this month.
The Digital Engineering team will primarily focus on the global medical device, energy transition, aerospace, consumer goods and mining markets. According to Element, services will be offered from Cambridge through its global network of laboratories.
Jo Wetz, CEO of Element said, “Element Digital Engineering is an exciting and natural extension of our commitment to develop specialist technical and digital services to solve complex problems for our customers who are working at the cutting edge of their industries.
“With this new expertise available to the Group, we look forward to creating new opportunities for digital technical knowledge sharing and improving partnerships with our customers.”
