When Kinetic Vision first opened its doors 30 years ago, the company stood out with a unique service: helping clients to virtually test products using modeling and simulation in an era when the technology was rarely seen outside the aeronautical and aerospace industries.
Founded by Rick Schweet as an analysis company, Kinetic Vision has since grown into an integrated technology company, expanding its focus beyond modeling and simulation to other
technologies like computed tomography scanning, visualization, machine learning and non-destructive testing. The company now consists of eight different groups focusing on these various technological services. “We are a services company. We help other people make their things better,” explains Shane Mooney, Group Manager of Kinetic Vision’s Modeling and Simulation Group. “We’re just a group of talented people with diverse backgrounds and diverse skillsets who are really interested in the creative problem-solving method.”
Kinetic Vision Chooses SIMULIA Cloud
Adaptive introduced Kinetic Vision to the benefits of SIMULIA cloud and allowed the company to run some small pilots—with fantastic results, according to Topich. “Adaptive is a continued resource that we lean on regularly to bounce ideas off to figure out new ways to solve problems,” he says. “We have a great relationship with them, truly something we value.”
Adopting cloud services through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform was a “no-brainer” according to Mooney. The cloud allows Kinetic Vision to scale “infinitely and instantly” for any project needs. If a client asks for a project that requires hundreds of simulations, that request can be rapidly fulfilled with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud solution.
