Naba Tailored Composite Solutions have added FiberSIM software from Vistagy to compliment their existing material design and project management capabilities.
Naba TCS will use the FiberSIM Advanced Composite Engineering Environment to design products made of advanced composite materials. Richard McAinsh, Technical Head of Naba TCS, stated “The choice of FiberSIM for Naba TCS was an easy one. The pace of F1 development and the ‘right first time’ philosophy provide a critical test which, through out my F1 experience, FiberSIM comfortably passed.”
“For Naba TCS the integration of FiberSIM into our CATIA V5 CAD system marks a major step to fulfilling our goal to offer the best tools available and to bring them to bare on the design and engineering of composite components. The uptake of composite materials beyond the racing and aerospace industries is such that a high-end composite design capability will offer real commercial advantages in structural performance, material and manufacturing costs and time to market.”
Located in the heart of Italian super-car country Naba T.C.S. is a design company, specialising in engineered composite components for the advanced transportation, general industrial and leisure markets.
