fleXstructures – Partner of Innovation

We stay by-your-side throughout the innovation! Our software solutions have been successfully applied in various industries for years throughout all phases of product lifecycle, giving customers a significant competitive advantage. This allows IPS to answer key questions and to explore existing potential from early concept phase, through series development, production and after sales. IPS is particularly appreciated for its simple handling, and its accurate and meaningful results in real-time.

Automotive

Automotive

Car is one of the most fascinating devices that a person can own. Car is even progressively migrating its meaning and customer usage thinking of new paradigms of electrification and autonomous driving. These new concepts present a real revolution in automotive industry. These are also the most challenging trends which automotive engineers are facing today during all development phases, from designing to manufacturing, to keeping constraints on green technology, and to continuously compressing time-to-market.

Truck and Bus

Truck and Bus

A common sense of truck and bus is to transport something. It could be materials, goods, animals, or people. Such an image is usually associated with one or more professional drivers driving thousands of kilometers along all types of roads in various weather conditions. To reduce driving effort, the driver place has been designed more comfortably with an increasing number of advanced driver assistance systems. However, autonomously driving trucks and buses with minimized CO2 emissions represent a real revolution in the industry. It is also the most predominant challenge which engineers are facing today during all development phases from designing to manufacturing.

Off-road

Off-road

Tractors and excavators are heavy-duty vehicles with a high fuel consumption due to heavy loads. Drivers of these vehicles need to feel very comfortable to succeed in working continuously. Autonomously driving off-road vehicles with reducing CO2 emissions change completely the mission of off-road vehicles. The off-road vehicles shall be able to work around the clock 24/7, while the driver will be sitting in a separate control room. This is the assignment engineers are trying to achieve these days to fully satisfy the demands of off-road market.

Motorcycle

Motorcycle

Motorcycle stands for freedom of mobility and real driving pleasure. Motorcycle also means speed performance and engine sounds. Continuously increased performance and achievements of required level of safety are the challenges which motorcycle engineers are currently facing. Moreover, advanced driver assistance systems and electrification are topics which engineers have to consider these days during all development phases, from designing to manufacturing, to keeping the constraints on green technology and to continuously compressing time-to-market.

Railway

Railway

Passengers usually consider railway as mobility with enough time for relaxing or working, especially for long-distance travel. However, the revolution today is the long-distance travel in a short time. Producing trains for long distance travel within the shortest time with the highest safety is always the challenge of railway industry. Especially the next maglev generation, the hyperloop, which travels “under vacuum”. This means, the trains will travel with airplane’s speed due to a combination of magnets placed on the outside of the train and on the walls of the tunnel. The challenge is to continuously increase the transportation speed in full safety with very complex technologies and to extremely shorten return of investment time.

We support our customers in designing trains, which match with the infrastructure (e.g. using all available space, matching with platform height or length, matching with safety equipment and matching with depot equipment). Besides that, the trains reach diverging requirements in different countries for different customers (e.g. national standards or specific service requirements). Early integrating the IPS product portfolio into the product development process allows to make quick and cost-effective modifications and optimizations.

Aerospace

Aerospace

Landing gears and radar systems are highly complex mixed technologies, which must guarantee full functionality, high confidence and reliability in all kinds of environments, weather and temperature conditions. The challenge is to achieve all of those performances in continuously shortened time, and progressively increasing the virtual testing.

Electronics

Electronics

Electronics industry has been transforming the world. The smartphone is becoming personal assistant; medical sensors are testing at home; transport is ready to introduce auto-pilot for automotive, plane and trains; industry 4.0, Internet-of-Things, and smart automation will increase efficiency of humans and machines. To continuously create new excellent products and initiations, innovative software solutions are crucial for electronics companies.

Other Industries

Other Industries

‘Wind lens’ around the turbine blades which create wind power cheaper than nuclear or self-power sensors which are designed to last forever and many other innovations are the immersive environment of today-future human-life. It also represents the real challenges which mechatronic engineers are facing these days. fleXstructures with innovative IPS software provides solutions to support engineers in meeting ever-changing strict regulatory requirements, answering product development challenges, mastering complexity of interdisciplinary development processes and speeding up the innovations.
