FEA (FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS)
When modifying or designing a new part, Davies uses a computer model of a material or design that is stressed and analyzed for specific results. FEA uses a complex system of points called nodes that create a mesh and are programmed to contain the material and structural properties to define how the part will react under certain loading conditions. This allows Davies’ engineers to verify whether or not a proposed design will perform to the client’s specifications prior to molding the part, saving customers unnecessary expense and lost time.
