  • Altair and Ferrari Join Hands to Make a Next-Gen Vehicle

Altair and Ferrari have established a collaboration to design a new next generation vehicle.

Altair is going to collaborate on a project with the luxury sports car maker Ferrari in order to make a new vehicle. Both of these companies are aiming to develop a next generation, high technology car for the future. This new “Next Generation” model will consists of many characteristics of flagship vehicles. Altair and Ferrari have been working together on various projects from the past ten years. Thus this kind of announcement shows that both of them are really willing to build and develop much better vehicles for the future.

Altair and Ferrari’s highly socialized engineers and developers have come forward in order to work on this next generation car. The manufacturing team which has been working with the Ferrari is going to make things much better for the project. Szwaj who is the director of Innovation at Ferrari stated that it was important for Altair to supply CAE and CAD experts in order to provide the best development ideas for the vehicle. On the other hand, for Ferrari, this project will represent, style, engineering achievement and success in the development of latest vehicles.

Maximilian Szwaj, Ferrari’s Director of Innovation and BIW Development, stated, “It was important for Altair to supply both CAD and CAE expertise to facilitate tight integration particularly when packaging ideas and manufacturing process are so fluid. The speed of the optimization processes deployed were able to control the weight whilst achieving the demanding structural targets as new packaging changes were introduced. For Ferrari, the Next Generation platform is a significant engineering achievement and a symbol of our successful collaboration with Altair.”

Both of the companies are going with the aura of Innovation to cater this project. Both of these believe that innovation along with correct planning and strategy making will lead them to build a “Next Generation” super vehicles that will be unique on its own. The characteristics like that of weight, crash chances and chassis will be considered by both while designing this vehicle.

Dr. Jones from Altair who is the head of designing said that Ferrari choosing Altair for this project shows the trust between these two companies. He also added that it was a great complement given to Altair by Ferrari on collaborating on this specific project.

Dr. Royston Jones, Exec VP European Operations & Global CTO, Altair ProductDesign, “For Ferrari to trust Altair to support the delivery of the Next Generation platform as a strategic partner was a great compliment. Ferrari provided an Innovation Environment where, together with Ferrari’s engineering team, our engineers and designers had the freedom to apply new technologies. As an innovation strategy, Ferrari encourages ideas from everywhere and our new design processes were able to rapidly assess the majority of ideas.”

“I love the Next Generation architecture, it has an organic nature, with the structure flowing smoothly from sections to joints. It’s an outcome of a massive deployment of structural optimization defining optimum material layout resulting in outstanding weight / performance characteristics. I believe it truly warrants the title of Next Generation and importantly, repays Ferrari’s trust.”
