Simulayt, the composites modelling software house has appointed Ryoyu Systems of Tokyo as the Japanese distributor of its Advanced Fiber Modeller product.
Dr John Klintworth, CEO of Simulayt commented “We are very pleased to have found an experienced partner in Japan with which we can work so synergistically and which understands our product so well. Ryoyu has an established pedigree as a reseller of CATIA and can take full advantage of the rapidly growing composites market in Japan.”
Ryoyu PLM technical manager Kiichi Koga said “ We are delighted that Simulayt has chosen us as its AFM reseller in Japan because this further enhances our position as the number one CATIA composites reseller in the territory and enables us to provide a unique bundle of products and services to companies working with composite materials”.
AFM allows instantaneous generation of flat patterns as a check on fibre simulation, and allows the user to simulate material application with accuracy using a seed curve or order of drape regions. The seed curve capability allows the user to guide warp, weft or bias directions along a curve to constrain the fiber directions along a chosen path. The order of drape capability models the sequential application of fabric to a surface to allow highly accurate modelling and the generation of complete manufacturing data. These capabilities are integrated within the CATIA V5 Composites Workbench, to provide the most powerful, end-to-end composites design and manufacturing capabilities within the CATIA V5 environment.
Toray Industries of Japan has also recently purchased Advanced Fiber Modeler.
