Finite Element Analysis

Understanding stresses and strains with computer aided engineering

FEA or Finite Element Analysis is a Computer Aided Engineering tool that allows Nefab Engineers to virtually examine the stresses and strains within designs. 

How can our FEA Services help you?

  • Cost Take Out - FEA provides insight on areas of a design that may be replaced with a cheaper material or different shape
  • Risk Analysis - Determine if the solution can pass the hazards experienced during transportation
  • Prototyping - Perform and test design iterations on the computer before creating prototypes
  • Test a design that is too large or heavy - some industrial packaging is too large to test, FEA provides a method to do so

Vertical Simulation Test

The simulation of a vertical compression test performed on open style crate the size of 3600 x 3600 mm. FEA allows us to test the effects on what if traditionally tested, would be impractical.


Testing Capabilities

To validate that a packaging solution meets the criteria defined, Nefab offers testing according to the most common testing standards (ISTA, ASTM, ISO, ENSI and EN). We have our own ISTA certified testing laboratories in China, India, Netherlands and Sweden.
