U.S. Patent Office confirms company’s powerful simulation technology remains unrivalled in its ability to predict long term durability and costs.
Brentwood, TN, January 6, 2010 – The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office recently awarded VEXTEC its third patent protecting the intellectual property upon which the company’s Virtual Life Management® (VLM®) technology is built. Patent No. 7,480,601, the third in a series of patents the company has applied for, furthers VEXTEC’s ownership stake of probabilistic, microstructure material forecasting technology. VLM predicts the in-service reliability of manufactured fleets of parts and will soon be launched through the company’s new Virtual Twin licensed simulator product offering.
