Hexagon to Acquire CAE Software Maker Romax Technology

Adding Romax’s expertise in electromechanical drivetrain design and simulation to its Manufacturing Intelligence division will, says Hexagon, enhance its Smart Factory Solutions.

“Electrification is a growing trend in automotive and aerospace but also presents new opportunities for Hexagon in the development of renewable energy systems,” said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén.

Hexagon AB (Stockholm), has signed an agreement to acquire Romax Technology Limited (Nottingham, UK), a provider of computer aided engineering (CAE) software for electromechanical drivetrain design and simulation.

A greater focus on energy efficiency and an accelerating shift towards electrification brings new engineering challenges that require increased use of simulation tools earlier in the design lifecycle. Romax Technology brings more than 30 years of experience in electromechanical simulation and multi-physics design optimization.

The cloud-enabled model-based systems engineering (MBSE) platform, Romax Nexus, provides a complete workflow for designing, simulating and delivering the next generation of energy efficient drive and power generation systems, enabling engineers to collaborate and optimise electrical and mechanical design simultaneously. By simulating the operation of the entire system – engine, gears, bearings and housings – the efficiency of automobile, aerospace and wind turbine powertrains can be optimized, and the battery range of electric vehicles can be increased.

“One of the greatest challenges of our time is the battle against climate change and the need to reduce GHG emissions. The acquisition of Romax Technology enables us to meet the growing need for electrification, providing our customers with integrated tools that empower engineering teams to develop the next generation of energy-efficient electric vehicles,” said Hexagon President and CEO Ola Rollén. “Electrification is a growing trend in automotive and aerospace but also presents new opportunities for Hexagon in the development of renewable energy systems.”

Romax Technology has approximately 240 employees globally serving more than 250 customers in the automotive, aerospace, wind power, marine, bearing and rail industries. The company will operate as part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. Completion of the transaction is subject to standard regulatory approvals. 2019 sales amounted to 27 million euros (MEUR).
