The members of the CADFEM Group form strategically the most important Channel Partner of ANSYS, the world’s largest developer of simulation technology. As ANSYS Channel Partner we sell all ANSYS simulation packages from structural mechanics to fluid dynamics, electromagnetics and system simulation as well as embedded software.


Since the inception in 1985, the brand name CADFEM stands for a tight collaboration with ANSYS: The distribution and support of the entire ANSYS portfolio from structural mechanics to fluid dynamics, electromagnetics and system simulation as well as embedded software. As a vital link between ANSYS and its users, CADFEM is also an important impulse generator to bring the customer needs into the product roadmap. With CADFEMs leadership and trendsetting in simulation based engineering, CADFEM is also an important partner for ANSYS’ development and for the development of third-party-solutions. The members of the CADFEM group have been growing today to 19 companies with more than 500 employees working in 30 different locations in 17 countries worldwide. Within this group we offer our product portfolio and our services worldwide in the same CADFEM-quality.

Structural Mechanics

A comprehensive approach covering the whole spectrum of structural applications both statics and dynamics.

Fluid Mechanics

ANSYS CFD is the technically leading solutions for the requirements of flow simulation (Computational Fluid Dynamics).


ANSYS products cover very broad areas of electromagnetism in high and low frequency ranges.

Embedded Software

ANSYS SCADE enables the model-based development of embedded software including automatic code generation according to safety-relevant standards.

3D Design

ANSYS 3D Design enables virtual prototyping for all design engineers. Direct modeling and live simulation gives instantaneous insight into products.


Analysis of complex multi-physical systems by means of strong and weak coupling between fields and connectors.


The ANSYS simulation platform delivers the broadest suite of best-in-class simulation technology and unifies it with your custom applications.

Simulation is more than Software

Because software alone cannot guarantee the success of simulation, CADFEM is a system vendor, an engineering provider and an education provider rolled into one. According to our slogan “Simulation is more than Software” we combine products, services and know-how into customized solutions.

Our clients receive everything that is essential for the success of a simulation from a single source: leading software and IT solutions, consulting services, programming, support, engineering and the transfer of knowledge.


Why Simulation?

The members of CADFEM have a vast and deep expertise in simulation know-how in almost each industry and almost each application. Common industries we serve are e.g. automotive, mechanical engineering, aerospace, shipbuilding, electronics, domestic appliances, healthcare and medical devices, etc. but as well cross industries like electrical drives, wind, solar, batteries and so on. Our core competences are finite-element-simulation (FEM, FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), electromagnetics, high frequencies, acoustics, code checking or system simulation.
