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.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
