Our expertise is spread across a wide range of engineering sectors: medical devices, renewable energy, pharmaceutical, aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, power engineering amongst others. Working with the Ansys suite of simulation products we are expert in its customisation for particular engineering applications. In addition we have recently developed cloud based hardware solutions for our client base which enables flexible, economic and on demand access to high end computing resources over the web. We have expertise in linear and nonlinear, static and dynamic, implicit and explicit, stress analyses, steady state and transient heat transfer analysis, computational fluid dynamics analysis, fluid-structure analysis.

How do we run our business? With humanity, simplicity and foresight!
We believe that trust, fairness and respect are essential for our society to work and that they are just as essential for a corporate culture. Common sense and thinking on one’s feet are important to us. We create the conditions for these basic principles to flourish. Rigid rules and bureaucracy are kept to a minimum and a certain amount of “chaos” is accepted.
What distinguishes us and our employees as a family-run company
AT CADFEM, people are at the center of everything we do. That means that trust, fairness and respect are the standards against which we measure our social and business conduct.
We think beyond today – and the current quarter. Maximizing profits is not our top priority. As a family-run business, we have freedom to decide as we see fit. The first priority is to secure the long-term viability and value of our company. We achieve that through stable finances, efficient business processes, good and satisfied employees and a pleasant working environment.
Our company’s “assets” are its loyal customers, our employees, the responsible and dedicated work of our management team and the engagement of our associates.

CADFEM and simulation - connected for over three decades
While making the transition from an engineering office to a leading provider of simulation solutions with over 20 holdings worldwide, CADFEM has written some 35 years’ worth of history. CADFEM’s roots actually go back to 1982. An engineer with Ansys at the time, Günter Müller, one of the two founders of the company, was responsible for sales, training and support. And in 1983 he organized the first User’s Meeting – what is today the CADFEM Ansys Simulation Conference – in Heersching am Ammersee. In 2016 IDAC Ltd became CADFEM UK CAE Ltd.

Ansys Elite Channel Partner
CADFEM & Ansys
A long and strong partnership - Ever since the company was founded in 1985, we have been a close sales partner of Ansys, the world’s largest developer of simulation software. As an Ansys Elite Channel Partner, we sell Ansys software products and support Ansys users in all matters concerning simulation. The German CADFEM team alone has 130 Ansys-specialized engineers in its ranks.
CADFEM has a direct line to Ansys development - Since the beginning of our partnership, we have ensured that Ansys software is used successfully in companies and research institutions. Through our commitment to Ansys, we play an active role in ensuring that customer requests are taken into account in software development at Ansys. And as a technological trendsetter ourselves, we develop our own software solutions that later make their way into Ansys.
CADFEM supports social and humanitarian institutions, initiatives and projects. Our involvement in social endeavors ranges from education funding to aid for needy children all around the world. We regularly donate to Bread for the World, Doctors Without Borders, Kinderhilfe Manila.
The Kinderhilfe Manila was founded by Margrit Messmer to enable children in the Philippines to attend school and receive training. In the two waste dump areas Payatas and Erap in Manila children are supported so that they receive a basic education and a meal in addition to their work on the waste dump.
