FEMSnap - Finite Element Analysis for Snap Fits

In conjunction with Ansys, LANXESS Deutschland GmbH – our parent company – offers access to a Web-based tool to analyze your part's snap-fit designs.

The program is based on the Finite-Element-Method (FEM) and allows quick and easy evaluation of above mentioned applications when analytical methods are insufficient or impractical.
When you enter the parameters of your design into the FEMSnap online tool, it replies by email with calculations and suggestions regarding your design.

The FEMSnap tool is available by _clicking here.
This will open a new browser window and connect you to the LANXESS Deutschland GmbH Web Site for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

You will be required to register for access to this tool.

After login you will find comprehensive information concerning snap-fits at our technical publication:
