Sensile Medical AG, a medical devices company based in Haegendorf, Switzerland, develops and produces innovative rotary micropumps for highly precise dosing and application of liquids. From the beginning the company has used Solid Edge, and more recently has supplemented that with Femap for simulation, NX CAM for numerical control programming, and Teamcenter for data management. Sensile Medical feels that these applications empower strong growth and compliance to various international requirements and standards of the industry.
The company reports that simulations using Femap, with its Solid Edge integration, are quick and easy, save time in the development process and accelerate change cycles. The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich tested the first prototype of the SenseCore pump. Sensile Medical found that the pressure results from those tests closely matched the Femap simulation results, quickly building confidence in the use of the software. Today Femap is primarily used to perform stress analysis, providing proof to clients and authorities that the complex devices are able to withstand the anticipated loads. Simulation is also an important resource to help with the relentless requirement for miniaturization in the industry.
