Many users of IPS Cable Simulation from all over the world already seized the opportunity to participate in our conferences, to learn more about the making of the software as well as new features and to share their own experiences with users from different domains and different countries.

With the 5th IPS Cable Simulation Conference 2023, we will revive the tradition to meet in person to strengthen the international network of experts applying the cable simulation technology.

IPS Cable Simulation is a powerful innovative tool for design, virtual assembly and DMU of flexible parts. Its main capability is the real time simulation of the deformation of wires, hoses and cable bundles of various material types and a variety of cross-section profiles. Due to unique and outstanding features such as cable length optimization and automatic routing including clips, IPS Cable Simulation has become the leading tool in its specific domain.
