FE ANALYSIS

Steelhead Composites has unique in-house capabilities for advanced finite element (FE) modeling and analysis of composite pressure vessels and pressurized structures. We use SolidWorks for preliminary design and development and ABAQUS finite element software for more advanced simulation.

If you need to design a new product or want your existing product to be analyzed for conformity, we are here to help.

METROLOGY

Steelhead Composites uses FaroArm, a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) that allows precise verification of product quality by performing 3D inspections, laser scanning of surface profile, comparison to CAD model, dimensional analysis of the manufactured products and tool certifications. Tools like this allows us to be fast and nimble in responding to customer’s needs for unique products as well as be responsive in delivering products within a specified lead time.
