ANSYS SpaceClaim - Emhart - Case Study
Pierre Ngankeu is a Senior Mechanical Engineer in the Process Automation & Simulation group at Emhart Glass Research Center. The Center includes a complete production line, enabling Emhart engineers and researchers to test new ideas in an industrial environment. The successful concepts can then be translated to the Equipment Innovations team to address challenges such as furnace variations, glass property changes, and cooling-wind fluctuations. Pierre performs multi-physics analysis on design concepts, with an emphasis on fluid dynamics and heat transfer during the molding process. Every bottle has different geometries, shapes, and challenges. The thermal distribution in the mold must be carefully controlled to optimize production rate, consistency, and quality.
