TROY (WWJ) — The Altair Partner Alliance announced that the electromechanical analysis tool JMAG, created by Japan’s JSOL Corp., will be available to enabled HyperWorks users this fall.

The addition of this influential tool to the program demonstrates the strategic value of the APA and the momentum that it continues to gain in forging prominent and diverse technology partnerships. Altair expects its partnership with JSOL to be a mutually beneficial endeavor, which will help increase JMAG’s visibility and market penetration and allow HyperWorks customers cost-effective access to this market leading technology.

“We are excited to bring JMAG, the leading player in the APAC market for low frequency electromagnetic simulation, to our global customers through the Altair Partner Alliance and our powerful units-based business model,” said James Scapa, Chairman and CEO at Altair. “JMAG’s addition to the APA demonstrates the strategic value of the APA to customers and partners, and it continues the trend towards having more market-leading as well as less-established independent software vendor products available to Altair HyperWorks customers.”

JMAG is an electromechanical design and development software. This user-friendly software is applicable to a variety of industries, such as automotive, consumer goods and electronics. It quickly simulates and evaluates complex physical phenomena occurring inside machines. The tool provides users with four main advantages, including precise analysis, high speed processing, and high productivity, all within an open interface.

Said Takashi Yamada, manager of the Electromagnetic Engineering Department at JSOL: “We hope that together we can introduce JMAG’s technology to Altair’s customers and enable them to benefit from electromagnetic simulation.”

The launch date for JSOL is set for late September 2013. Please visit for more information about the Altair Partner Alliance, and for info about JSOL and its software.
