DEP develops stent meshing tool to speed 5 times stent CAE modelling process

MeshWorks with its fully customisable stent rolling and stent mesh parameterisation tools offer a platform for creating high-quality numerical models as input towards stent performance evaluation and optimisation.

Detroit Engineered Products (DEP), a US-based company with specialised capabilities in the biomedical industry has developed a unique stent rolling tool within its proprietary CAE platform, DEP MeshWorks. This can save company’s significant time in their design process of stents. MeshWorks with its fully customisable stent rolling and stent mesh parameterisation tools offer a platform for creating high-quality numerical models as input towards stent performance evaluation and optimisation.

According to a Deloitte report, the growth rate of India’s medical-device industry is around 15 per cent which is more than double of the global industry growth rate of 4-6 per cent and is expected to become a $ 25-30 billion industry in India by 2025. DEP with its unique capabilities for the industry is all set to contribute to the growth of India on a global map.

The tool removes a step from the traditional process of stent design and introduces a faster time-saving method for designing. In the conventional design process for a stent, the design is built as a 1D CAD data, then converted to a 3D CAD data and then into a 3D mesh data, on which virtual validation is conducted. This testing involves considerable back and forth with the CAD data, which can be time-consuming. In the new process developed by DEP, as soon as the 2D line data is available, it can be directly taken into MeshWorks and converted directly into a 3D Mesh data. This 3D mesh is now parametric, and as virtual testing is conducted, changes can be done directly in the mesh data, and the time taken for back and forth design changes with CAD can be significantly reduced.
