Siemens expands Simcenter capabilities with acquisition of Saab Medav technology

Siemens has acquired the Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH) division of Saab Medav Technologies. With the new department, the company adds integrated solutions with NVH quality requirements in production to its Simcenter portfolio.

Saab Medav is a global provider of the latest signal processing, communication intelligence and analysis for air, land and sea applications. The organisation also supplies NVH solutions for industrial quality tests. According to the company, the solutions have identified innovative best practices in terms of quality testing of motors, transmissions, electric motors, motor-driven components and systems.

The NVH technology and the team are now part of Siemens PLM Software business, which in turn is part of Siemens Digital Factory Division. “With the integration of Saab Medav NHV solutions, Siemens customers will have the opportunity to enrich the digital twins of their product design with consistent quality control information from production,” said Jan Leuridan, senior vice president of Simulation & Test Solutions at Siemens PLM Software.

“This provides a unique insight into how production technology and variables in production affect the final quality of the product. In addition, the technology provides direct feedback on the cause analysis of possible design problems that occur in production, and generates the insight for possible new designs.”

Extended range

Olaf Strama, head of the NHV department at Saab Medav, thinks that the department as part of Siemens can offer more to customers. “Our customers can benefit from an industry-leading developer team of NHV technology and solutions, including an extensive portfolio of systems and software for data acquisition and smart data analytics.

In addition, according to Strama, Siemens’ global reach should ensure that customers in all major production areas worldwide are reached.

The acquisition is expected to be completed in the second quarter of this year. Details of the transaction, such as the acquisition amount, are not known.
