VISTAGY, Inc., announced today the release of EnCapta software, which extends the power of sophisticated computer-aided-design (CAD) systems that engineers use to create 3D product geometry. EnCapta augments CAD software by providing engineers with tools for capturing and communicating specialized non-geometric design data that are vital for complete product definition. Engineering organizations that use CAD models as a primary source of information about products will benefit from EnCapta’s complementary software tools for enriching the design environment.
VISTAGY has longtime expertise in providing specialized CAD-integrated design environments for customers such as Sikorsky Aircraft, The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, Bombardier Aerospace, and many other companies. EnCapta advances the technology underlying the company's well-regarded FiberSIM software, which provides engineers with a specialized environment integrated into the CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, and Unigraphics CAD systems to meet the demands of composite part design and manufacture. With EnCapta, engineers can now capture complex non-geometric design data for any specialized area of engineering and store it associatively with the CAD geometry.
VISTAGY, Inc., founded in 1991 as Composite Design Technologies, Inc., develops software that integrates sophisticated tools for engineers into popular CAD systems. and manufacturing tools. For more information, visit http://www.vistagy.com.
Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) announces its film infusion capabilities for 3-D woven joints. In the film infusion process, a frozen sheet or film of resin is infused onto the custom 3-D woven joint, saving customers the trouble of infusing the resin themselves upon delivery of the BRM-made joint.
Boeing has delivered the 787th 787 Dreamliner to come off the production line, marking a special milestone for the super-efficient airplane family and the fastest-selling twin-aisle jet in history.
TRB Lightweight Structures has recently gained the highest DIN 6701 (Parts 1-4) A1 type certification.
