DEM Solutions Limited is a leading provider of particle simulation or discrete element modelling (DEM) software for simulating and analysing industrial processes.
Founded in 2003 by Dr John Favier, DEM Solutions has quickly become a leader in the particle simulation field with the modelling software EDEM. EDEM provides companies with a tool to substantially reduce the number of physical prototypes and tests required to get a product to market or a process on-stream. It is used to help trouble-shoot difficult particulate processes and, because it is physics based, it can greatly improve understanding of system fundamentals leading to better product and process design and innovation.
First released in 2005, EDEM is now used in the design and analysis of particulate handling, processing, and manufacturing operations in almost every industry sector and engineering discipline. Since launch, the company has sold to many of the world’s leading companies across many industrial sectors including NASA, Pfizer, Shell, John Deere, Volvo, Xerox, De Beers and Mitsubishi. In addition, they have sold to world leading industrial research groups at universities such as Queensland and Cape Town.
DEM Solutions’ corporate headquarters are located in Edinburgh, Scotland with offices in Lebanon, New Hampshire, Frankfurt, Germany and Singapore with distributor representation worldwide.
