GeonX was founded in 2012 with the goal of bringing to the market a simulation tool that would help manufacturing engineering developing new products. This tool, called Virfac (standing for Virtual Factory), is today used by engineers around the world to simulate welding, additive manufacturing, machining, heat treatment and damage resistance in various industries including aeronautics, automotive, naval and nuclear. Systematic use of process simulation with Virfac drastically reduces the number of prototypes to be built in the development phase while improving the quality and lifetime of the manufactured products. This directly minimizes the time to market and development costs, providing Virfac users with a key competitive advantage. GeonX SA is headquartered in Belgium with offices in France and in the USA and major representatives in Korea, China and Japan.
