The Digital Twin

Digital Prototyping

Physical prototypes are complex, time consuming, and expensive ways to evaluate the performance of a design. When a prototype does not perform as expected, the process of re-design and production must repeat, leading to costly delays in the engineering development cycle.

Our Simulation team can accelerate you past this painful early stage of prototyping. Tangent makes use of advanced computer simulation methods to rapidly predict, visualize, and evaluate designs under countless scenarios before building prototypes or test models. We can predict the future performance of every design option, under any condition. We iterate and refine designs quickly and easily to obtain the best design as efficiently as possible. .

Working with our simulation department can substantially reduce the cost and risk associated with research and development. This helps you stay on budget and meet deadlines while providing necessary confidence in your design before the first prototype is ever built.
