White River Junction, VT, USA – April 4, 2024 — Concepts NREC is pleased to announce the latest release of the Agile Engineering Design System®, an integrated suite of software modules for Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) specialized for turbomachinery.

The 2024.1 release of CAE software has improvements across the board for designing and optimizing all types of turbomachines – axial, radial, and mixed flow, pumps, compressors, and turbines. In particular, we focused this release on the design of turbopumps and have continued the job of teaching our software how our engineers predict the performance of a pump at the meanline level, reducing the needed iterations to go from specifications to CFD-ready geometry. The release of MAX-PAC continues our progress towards making MAX-PAC the only CAM software needed in a shop that machines impellers and blisks. We have made it easier to go from CAD to a MAX-PAC configuration and make collision-free toolpaths.



Dr. Peter Weitzman, President of Software Sales & Business Development has the following to say about v2024.1,


“Our customers are the key to our success. Every time I am asked by a potential new user if our software has a needed capability the answer is almost always yes, and usually it’s because another customer pushed us to develop that capability in the past. This new version is available thanks to the feedback from thousands of users over decades of design and manufacturing experience.”


Version 2024.1 is available now for active Agile Product Support (APS) members to download at the customer support center or by emailing
