The Ohio Supercomputer Center has a long history of supporting industrial research, reaching back as far as the Center’s founding in 1987. Manufacturers have leveraged the Center’s computational and storage resources to design and test many products, such as electronics, fans, containers, fuel cells and wind deflectors.
A research team recently sought to transform how professionals and students make and learn about advanced manufacturing components through a “simulation-as-a-service” app based on cloud resources and software access. Their application allows users to remotely access software and compute resources using a virtual desktop-as-a-service system for advanced manufacturing processes.
KLW Plastics, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of containers, recently partnered with Kinetic Vision and the Ohio Supercomputer Center to evaluate the effectiveness of advanced modeling and simulation technologies to optimize its container products by lightening their weight, while maintaining the required strength.
