Simulayt has appointed Simulia, the Dassault Systemes brand for realistic simulation, as the worldwide reseller of its Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE.
“We are delighted to have Simulia as our reseller for Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE. This is a natural extension of the strong technical partnership that we’ve developed with Simulia as we’ve worked closely with them to bring additional advanced composites modelling and analysis capabilities to Abaqus/CAE users”, stated Dr John Klintworth, CEO of Simulayt.”Simulia’s technical sales and support teams have significant composites experience, so we’re confident that Composites Modeler users will be in good hands. Additionally, Simulia provides an extensive, well respected global sales channel that will enable us to extend our reach into the European, American, and Asia Pacific markets to deliver advanced composites capabilities to Abaqus/CAE users in the automotive, aerospace, and other industries.”
“Expanding our partnership with Simulayt to become their worldwide reseller of Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE will enable Simulia to provide an even stronger product offering to the advanced composites market and bring greater value to our customers,” noted Ken Short, VP Strategy and Marketing at Simulia. “Many of our customers are already benefiting from the tight integration of Abaqus FEA and Composites Modeler to model and analyze advanced composites materials. Now our customers will be able to get complete service, from sales to technical support, for both products directly from SIMULIA, leading to greater efficiency in their design analysis and business operations.”
