Hamburg, Germany, February 21, 2013 – The Hamburg based software company Simufact Engineering has founded the Indian subsidiary Simufact India Private Limited. Dr. Gabriel Mc Bain (38) has been appointed as Director of Simufact India. The registered office of the new company is the city of Bangalore, in which leading component suppliers and aerospace companies are based.
With its software solutions, Simufact primarily aims at metalworking and -processing companies, among these the automotive and aerospace industry, but also at plant and mechanical engineering companies and sector-related suppliers. This software simulates forming, welding and mechanical joining processes and supports companies to design and optimize their production processes quicker. By virtual testing, companies save valuable production resources and simultaneously reduce the time needed to release innovative production processes for serial production. In this area Simufact ranks among the leading companies.
For several years, Simufact has been successfully operating on the Indian market. In close cooperation with its reseller partner Partner Kadkraft Systems Pvt. Ltd., based in the north-western city of Chandigarh, Simufact has already been able to acquire a number of renowned Indian customers for its software applications. The customer base includes, among others, L&T Special steels and heavy forgings, Shivam Autotech and Ramsays Corporation.
To his new task, Gabriel Mc Bain (38) contributes years of scientific and industrial experience in forming technology. After graduating in metallurgy and materials engineering from RWTH in Aachen, he worked there as a research employee in several research projects on incremental forming technology and bulk metal forming at the institute of Metal Forming for more than five years. In 2009 he obtained the doctorate with a thesis on numerical modeling of innovative bulk metal forming processes. Gabriel Mc Bain has gained his industrial experience as a project manager of acut Aachener Umformtechnik GmbH and at Simufact since 2010.
“The metalworking industry in India expands very dynamically”, says Michael Wohlmuth, Managing Director and CEO of simufact engineering gmbh. “This is why the Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association anticipates double-digit growth rates in the next years, mostly by the benefits of the booming automotive industry in India. In these premises, we will continue to expand our activities in India beyond the foundation of an own subsidiary.”
Gabriel Mc Bain, Director of Simufact India, adds: “The primary task of Simufact India is currently to offer our customers a comprehensive technical service; we do not only help to introduce our software on-site, we also provide engineering support and train the users far beyond the application of our software products in questions of production technology. Our reseller partner Kadkraft will further cooperate with us in Indian sales activities.”
