11 February 2008

Airbus has made a multi-site purchase of Simulayt’s Advanced Fiber Modeler for CATIA V5 product for use throughout Europe and beyond in the A350 XWB and other programs.

Dr John Klintworth, CEO of Simulayt commented “Airbus is committed to extensive use of composite materials on future aircraft, including structures with extremely complex geometry. We are delighted that Airbus has selected our fibre simulation solution following extensive trials that fully exercised our unique simulation capabilities. These powerful capabilities are fully integrated within the CATIA Composites Workbench, allowing seamless access by engineers at Airbus and their suppliers and total integration within the CATIA-based workflow. This will ensure consistent use and collaboration across the enterprise.”

Simulayt’s products include Advanced Fiber Modeler for CATIA V5, Composites Link for CATIA V5 and Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE. In addition, the technology is licensed for use in MSC Software’s Patran Laminate Modeler and Anaglyph Limited’s Laminate Tools.
