SmartCAE Takes AxSTREAM™ Flow Path Design and Optimization Software to Italian Turbomachinery Design, Retrofit and Turbocharger Markets

Burlington, MA, July 12, 2007. SoftInWay, a global leader in the development of flow path design software for axial and radial turbo-machinery, today announced that it has signed an agreement with SmartCAE srl in Prato, Italy to distribute the AxSTREAM™ Suite of Multi-disciplinary Design and Optimization software to the turbo-machinery industry in Italy.

“The strategy of SmartCAE is to promote and support high quality tools that provide a true technical advantage to our customers,” says Francesco Palloni, Director of Business Development of SmartCAE. “AxSTREAM is a powerful tool that perfectly complements our present portfolio of CAE solutions for engineering. Today the Italian users of AxSTREAM can access local technical support directly from SmartCAE personnel.”

“Whether the focus is improving efficiency of an old steam turbine during a power plant retrofit/upgrade or designing more powerful turbochargers for the new series of Formula 1 race engines, AxSTREAM is a vital design tool to optimize turbomachinery performance” stated Dr. Leonid Moroz, President of SoftInWay. “Italian manufacturers in the sectors of aviation, automotive and power generation are renowned for advancing new design and engineering concepts, and AxSTREAM will help them achieve their design goals.”

SmartCAE will also be distributing the axial and radial educational versions of AxSTREAM™ to the engineering colleges and universities in Italy. These educational versions allow students to learn design theory while actually creating designs using “real world” industry platforms.
