EDEM Simulation for Industry

EDEM has been at the forefront of Discrete Element Method software for bulk material simulation since 2003. Delivering tried and trusted results for leading blue-chip companies worldwide in the following industries.

  • Heavy Equipment

    Leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the construction, off-highway, mining and agriculture industries use EDEM for virtual testing of equipment that handles bulk materials such as dump truck bodies, dragline and backhoe excavator buckets, spreaders, tillers and harvesters.


    • Optimize equipment design and performance
    • Increase productivity
    • Reduce costs of operations
    • Shorten product development cycles
    • Reduce costs and dependence on physical prototyping and testing
    • Investigate new designs without manufacturing costs
