PADT is an engineering services company headquartered in Tempe, Arizona. A proud Channel Partner for ANSYS Inc., PADT is part of the global channel team delivering the world’s premier CAE solutions for Simulation Driven Product Development. Since our founding in 1996, we partner with our customers to bridge the gap between cutting-edge simulation technology and practical application.

Our ANSYS sales, training, support and consulting teams work with the full line of ANSYS products, encompassing all structural and fluids, electromagnetics, systems and Multiphysics tools. Our sales and support of the ANSYS product line extends throughout the entire Southwest US. We pride ourselves in providing world-class technical support that is local and timely to our customers.

PADT offers customers unique value, as our engineering services spans from engineering simulation consulting, High Performance Computing (HPC) system configuration and sales, to Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing, and full product design & development engineering services.

With 80 employees, most of which are advanced degree Mechanical/Electrical engineers, PADT is a Small Business, ITAR Compliant, with Quality Systems such as our ISO 13485 for Medical Device Product Development.

PADT offers customers both standard and custom ANSYS training and mentoring services. Two areas of particular depth include training in advanced physics and methods (ie., Advanced Structural Nonlinearities), as well as coupled physics (ie., Fluid Structure Interaction) and associated advanced workflows.

In 2013, PADT joined the “ANSYS HPC Partnership Program”, leveraging our expertise in marrying the various physics/computational methods to appropriate hardware resources. Meaning, we deliver full turn-key computing hardware solutions to customers that are both expertly configured to the types of simulations/physics they run, and are properly scaled to the size of the customers engineering team. From single power workstations, to large networked multi-node computing clusters, PADT has deep expertise on both the software application (ANSYS) and hardware configuration fronts, enabling us to deliver the highest performance-to-value numerical computing systems.

Metal 3D Printing is among the Additive Manufacturing technologies PADT employs, along with cutting edge FDM, Polyjet, and SLA/SLS. Advanced laser scanning technologies round out a full solution. These capabilities are key enablers for us to realize the full potential of ANSYS simulation solutions for Shape Optimization and Robust Design. Our engineering experts can go from concept, to optimized design, to 3D Printed Part with blazing speed- and we help customers create the workflows and best-practice needed to enable innovation at this level.

At PADT, We Make Innovation Work. Along with our HQ in Tempe, PADT has local offices located in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Littleton, Colorado; Murray, Utah; and Torrance, California. Please contact us to learn more about any of the capabilities above, or to discuss how we can partner to maximize your investment in ANSYS technology.
