Ansys Partners with Supermicro, NVIDIA

PITTSBURGH, PA, July 22, 2024 – Ansys is collaborating with Supermicro and NVIDIA to deliver turnkey hardware, enabling unmatched acceleration for Ansys multiphysics simulation solutions. By leveraging the combined power of industry-leading hardware and software, Ansys customers can solve larger, more complex models up to 1,600x faster. When running on Supermicro and NVIDIA technology, Ansys solutions reduce time-to-market and facilitate more robust design exploration for a wide range of applications, including automotive crash testing and external aerodynamics, aerospace gas turbine engines, 5G/6G antennas, and biopharmaceutical development.

Getting the most out of multiphysics simulation involves integrating different types of physics solvers with a range of hardware choices, each offering unique performance benefits. However, sizing and configuring the right hardware for multiphysics simulation is a complex task that can significantly impact performance, cost, and productivity. Turnkey, customized hardware solutions with central processing units (CPUs), graphics processing units (GPUs), interconnects, and cooling modules allow engineers to run predictively accurate simulations more efficiently.

Collaborative testing between Ansys and Supermicro discovered replicating the performance of Ansys Fluent and Ansys Rocky running on one NVIDIA GPU would require 1,500 and 480 CPU cores, respectively. Ansys Perceive EM running on one NVIDIA GPU achieves the same performance as 1,000,000+ CPU cores. In addition, the testing process revealed the following accelerations:

The speed-ups were achieved by introducing or replacing CPU cores and GPUs with NVIDIA technology. NVIDIA hardware used in testing included NVIDIA H100 GPUs, NVIDIA L40S GPUs, and the NVIDIA Grace CPU Superchip.

“The breadth and depth of the Ansys multiphysics portfolio requires a thoughtful approach to compute infrastructure with GPUs,” said Vik Malyala, president & managing director, EMEA; SVP, Technology & AI, Supermicro. “We are closely working with Ansys and NVIDIA with the broadest GPU and CPU systems offering (Hyper/CloudDC, scalable GPU systems: 4U-10U, and others) to accelerate simulations, eliminate guesswork, and improve customer deployment time worldwide.”

With NVIDIA technology designed with Ansys and Supermicro’s energy-efficient server technology, engineers can reduce overhead costs and energy consumption by using fewer servers to do the same work.

“Supermicro provides exceptional architecture for Ansys solutions, reducing constraints on the number, size, and complexity of simulation models,” said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “We remain committed to working with NVIDIA to migrate our solutions currently supported on Hopper chips to Blackwell. By offering advanced, customized configurations with Blackwell and Hopper superchips, our customers’ projects can truly span the full range of physics, from fluids to electronics and structures.”

“The synergy between Ansys and NVIDIA is propelling us into a new era of technological innovation,” said Dion Harris, director of data center product solutions at NVIDIA. “Ansys simulation solutions play a key role in the development of our cutting-edge AI superchips, while NVIDIA’s accelerated data center AI and digital twin platforms empower Ansys to push the boundaries of simulation performance. Together, we’re unlocking deeper insights and paving the way for groundbreaking advancements that will shape the future of engineering and AI.”

Heckler & Koch Selects Flexxbotics for Robot-Driven Mfg

Flexxbotics announced that Heckler & Koch USA (HKUSA), a leading designer and manufacturer of small arms and light weapons for military forces and law enforcement worldwide, has chosen Flexxbotics for robot-driven manufacturing with autonomous process control. Advanced robotic machine tending with Flexxbotics enables Heckler & Koch to increase capacity with precision quality to keep up with strong demand globally while addressing labor challenges through unattended operation.

With Flexxbotics HKUSA achieves a robot-enabled, multi-machine cellularized setup for machining complex geometry parts. The robot will operate both an Okuma 5-Axis vertical machining center and an Okuma horizontal machining center along with an integrated water dunk & blow-off station, a Hexagon Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Renishaw inspection probe and SICK safety scanner all within an individual workcell. Automating the complete process of machining and inspection results in an 87% capacity increase and 24:1 machine-to-man ratio.

HKUSA is a provider of small arms to law enforcement, defense departments and the US civilian with a reputation for quality, innovation and safety. With operations in Germany, USA, UK and France, Heckler & Koch is a recognized leader in the development of technologically advanced products with high reliability.

The Flexxbotics solution seamlessly connects the robot to each piece of equipment and coordinates the work so the robot has full command and control of the workcell. Using closed-loop feedback CMM inspection results, Flexxbotics writes offset macro variable changes to the CNC machines’ programs. The real time corrections ensure all parts are built to spec for continuous operations using autonomous process control.

In addition, Flexxbotics communicates with the in-machine probes to ensure proper part seating before and after each CNC cycle. Based on the probe’s feedback, the robot either automatically remove and replace the part or escalates the problem via text & email if there is a workholding issue.

HKUSA selected Flexxbotics based on the following criteria:

  • Increase production capacity by over 80% per week and achieving a 24:1 machine-to-man ratio
  • Open connectivity and interoperability between the robots, CNC machines and inspection equipment
