HBM nCode Appoints Reseller for Australian Market
nCode, the leading brand of fatigue and durability-based analysis software offered by HBM, announces today that LEAP Australia will sell and support nCode products in Australia and New Zealand.
LEAP represents the largest CAD, CAID, CAM, DEM, FEA, CFD, PDM and PLM reseller in Australia and New Zealand, supporting users of PTC®, ANSYS® and now nCode® software in the ANZ region. A support focused organization; LEAP combines their staff’s real-world experience with market leading products to deliver quality solutions and support that help customers solve engineering problems. Under the agreement, LEAP will sell and support nCode GlyphWorks, a data processing system for durability; nCode DesignLife, a solution for fatigue life prediction from finite element results; and nCode CDS, a complete durability system with flexible access licensing.
“We are delighted about this agreement with HBM-nCode at a time when our customers are increasingly concerned with extending the life of their products,” said Greg Horner, Managing Director at LEAP Australia. “To team up with the world’s leading fatigue technology partner, HBM-nCode is a win for both LEAP Australia and our valued customers.”
Fatigue analysis is used by OEMs and suppliers of all types of industry to determine if a part will survive the large number of load cycles experienced in its lifetime. A fatigue analysis will determine the durability or the fatigue life of a part and is vital in terms of reducing warranty and maintenance costs. For the Australian market, predicting the life of a product or component with this analysis method is especially interesting for the rail and mining industries.
“We are very pleased to be working with LEAP Australia and its customers” said Steve Tudberry, Vice President, HBM-nCode. “With LEAP’s expertise in engineering software and in particular, their knowledge of nCode products, Australian OEMS and suppliers now have access to local support that will help them to cut warranty expenses, shorten design cycles, and design products for increased durability.”
HBM-nCode will have a representative in attendance at Fatigue 2014 Congress in Melbourne, Australia from March 2-7, 2014.
