Aspen Technology has acquired SolidSim Engineering — a provider of solids process modelling software based in Hamburg, Germany.
SolidSim software is used by a number of process manufacturing companies to model the parts of their processes that involve solids.
The addition of SolidSim builds on existing solids process modelling capabilities in aspenONE Engineering software.
The combination of SolidSim and aspenONE Engineering will eventually enable end users to model an entire facility as one single model, consisting of both solids and non-solids process sections.
This will allow both process engineers and particle technology engineers to work within a single modelling environment.
