Software specialists VISTAGY and BETA CAE Systems have secured a joint technology partnership that will enable manufacturers in the automotive, aerospace and other industries to boost their ability to leverage the value of composites by closely integrating analysis and design, thus reducing product development cycle time and enhancing product quality.
The companies aim to integrate VISTAGY’s FiberSIM®composites engineering software and BETA CAE Systems’ ANSA CAE pre-processing software.
Developers say that FiberSIM supports all of the unique and complex design and manufacturing methodologies necessary to engineer innovative, durable and lightweight composite products and parts. ANSA is an advanced multidisciplinary CAE pre-processing tool that provides all the necessary functionality for full-model build up, from CAD data to ready-to-run solver input files, in a single integrated environment.
“BETA CAE Systems is one of the world’s leading analysis firms and a true force in the automotive industry,” said Ed Bernardon, vice president of business development for VISTAGY. “With the growing interest in composites in the automotive industry, there is clearly a natural fit for a partnership between VISTAGY and BETA CAE Systems to provide state-of-the-art solutions to our joint customers.”
The product will be available in the first quarter of 2010.
