Engineering Company Is Co-Developing JSF Engine Component With NX
Atkins Nedtech is an engineering company that specializes in the design and analysis of aircraft components and aircraft engines. Atkins Nedtech wanted to work in collaboration with Rolls-Royce on the development of the JSF turbofan engine. To master these needs Atkins Nedtech chose Siemens PLM Software. Atkins Nedtech deployed NX digital product development system from Siemens. The company is using NX to create a digital model of the housing. The 3D NX data is also used to create mockups. Special software developed by Rolls-Royce is being used to analyze the forces generated by the high rotation speeds of the rotor and how these forces are transmitted to the airframe.
