DEM Solutions develops, markets and sells EDEM® - the leading Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material flow simulation.
EDEM is used for ‘virtual testing’ of equipment that handles or processes bulk materials in the manufacturing of mining, construction, off-highway and agricultural machinery, as well as in the mining and process industries.
First released in 2006, EDEM is powered by the Company’s state-of-the-art DEM simulation technology, and it is also the underlying technology platform for EDEM BulkSim® and EDEM Academic™ software.
Companies worldwide that handle or process bulk materials such as coal, ores, soil, pellets, and powders deploy EDEM technology to:
*optimize equipment design and performance
*enhance product innovation
*increase productivity and operational efficiencies for greater profitability
*improve understanding of complex bulk particle systems
Founded in 2003, DEM Solutions is a global company headquartered in Edinburgh (UK) with offices in Boston (USA), Yokohama (Japan) and Shenzhen (China) supporting direct sales in Europe, Americas, Japan, China, and Australia, and channel sales in the rest of the world. DEM Solutions also works with a network of industry-expert engineering service partners worldwide supporting customers in deployment of EDEM simulation technology to address engineering challenges involving bulk particles.
