MacGregor Cranes signs 3-year OEM contract of AGX Dynamics

Kristiansand, Norway, 11/06/2013
Algoryx Simulation announced today that it has completed a new sale to MacGregor Norway for offshore handling simulations. MacGregor will be using AGX Dynamics for design of control software and HMI, to develop and design simulators for internal testing of control systems. MacGregor has integrated AGX Dynamics into their internal crane engineering software platform – to allow challenging decisions to be based on realistic data when developing new offshore equipments, or training new crane operators.

AGX Dynamics was chosen after some serious evaluation projects, where accurate physics and behaviour were crucial. The contract includes internal development including OEM rights, and internal use within offshore crane project, as well as for external use by MacGregor’s global offshore equipment customers.

About Algoryx Simulation

Algoryx was established in 2007 and has quickly positioned itself as a leading provider of industrial-grade real-time physics simulation to the global training simulator market. Algoryx’ history goes back much further however, to the mid 90’s when the founders of Algoryx created the very first human-in-the-loop-simulators for heavy ground vehicles utilizing real-time physics simulation fully integrated with 3D graphics. This was also when the term “physics engine” was coined for the software framework that encapsulates these technologies. AGX Dynamics is today the leading real-time physics engine for the global simulator and simulation market, in particular for the off-shore, maritime, automotive, robotics, and mining markets. More recently, Algoryx has also entered the CAD/CAE market and now also provides interactive physics to engineers and designers.
