Talgo taps MSC.Software for virtual HSR simulations

Posted on September 23, 2010

MSC.Software announced that Talgo upgraded to the Enterprise Advantage License Unit (EALU) licensing system to allow flexible access to a range of MSC simulation solutions for its growing R&D team.

Talgo specializes in the design, manufacture and maintenance of railway material and equipment. The company uses Adams to validate train suspensions to fulfill certification standards and to perform faster simulations of high-speed trains.

The flagship product made by the Talgo manufacturing company is a high-speed passive tilting train equipped with a variable gauge system. This system enables the Talgo train to operate on different track types and travel between several locations where different track gauges are used.

The Enterprise Advantage License Unit (EALU) is a flexible, parallel licensing system, which enables access to the entire solution portfolio from MSC.Software through a license pool.
