HBS Engineering is always searching for new projects and potential partners. We have a policy of using as much open source software as possible, thereby making knowledge transfer to the company as smooth as possible.

Commercial FEM software are used under license, and HBS Engineering holds commercial licenses for Comsol Multiphysics, Matlab, Alibre Expert.

Open Source CAD and FEM tools are used on a regular basis during our research and development projects. Of special interest can be mentioned FreeFem3D, Elmer and Salomme-Meca including Code Aster, OpenFlower, Calculix, OpenFOAM, GMSH, ParaView packages. This enable us to collaborate with costumers who do not currently hold licenses for any commercial FEM/CAE/CAD softwares.

We are focusing on simulation and optimization of loaded components and effects of thermomechanical processing, since these are important in the real world applications. Our special focus within thermomechanical processing
is on welding simulation (computational welding mechanics) - especially Friction Stir Welding.

The new workshop is placed at Erdalsvej in Glostrup, Denmark. The workshop is 57 square meters and the building is under renovation. The workshop will in the near future include a 3-axis CNC milling machine. This machine is used for Friction Stir Welding as well as 3D CAM prototyping in either foam or metals.
