INNOVATION THROUGH MANUFACTURING SIMULATION
Computer modeling and simulations can drastically lower the cost of creating a new manufacturing product by generating and evaluating a simulation in a fraction of the time it takes to build and test a prototype. Computer models and simulations are important tools for manufacturers, but the startup costs for high-end computing can be prohibitive for small- and medium-sized manufacturers. That’s where the Connecticut Manufacturing Simulation Center (CMSC) comes in. We offer access to high-end simulation and modeling technology to Connecticut manufacturers to promote innovation, economic growth and next-generation workforce development. The CMSC was established through a partnership between UConn, Connecticut Innovations, and the United States Economic Development Administration. We have capabilities in modeling a variety of manufacturing processes such as sheet metal forming, hot press forming, welding, stamping, casting, injection modeling, and machining. We also offer training to students and professionals.
The Enterprise Solution Center at UConn IPB including both CMSC and Proof of Concept Center (POCC) was featured on Simsbury Bank's Economic Development podcast: Manufacturing Matters Episode 10 on May 23, 2019. Watch the interview at YouTube.
