Desktop Engineering has announced the availability of Dassault Systems CATIA Composite Design and Manufacture products in the UK.
Drawn from Airbus and Boeing work processes, CATIA V5 Composites Design is an advanced process centric solution that allows companies from the aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and consumer goods industries, to reduce design and manufacturing time for complex composite parts.
CATIA V5 Composite Design Solution is already in use at major aircraft and helicopter manufacturers and suppliers, Formula 1 teams and yacht designers.
“Using CATIA V5 Composites Solution significantly improved our engineering processes and almost doubled the productivity of our design staff,” said Antti Aho-Mantila, R&D Engineer at Patria Aerostructures in Spain.
The system delivers software tools covering preliminary and detailed design phases while taking into account, even at the concept stage, product manufacturing requirements. Geoff Haines Managing Director of Desktop Engineering commented “This product marries with our traditional areas of expertise, Design, Analysis and Manufacturing and enables us to offer exciting new capabilities to new and existing customers”.
Short-lived bridge products that require constant care and regular replacement have prompted parks and recreation agencies to look for longer lasting alternatives.
During 2017 Brazilian company Fibermaq consolidated its filament winding portfolio.
New Zealand company Revolution Fibres is tripling nanofibre production to meet increased international demand from a range of industries, from cosmetics manufacturers through to Formula One teams.
