The company say the software on show includes Laminate Analysis Program (LAP), Component Design Analysis (CoDA) and Laminate Tools, as well as Anaglyph’s PlyMatch technology for ply placement.
According to Anaglyph, Laminate Tools addresses the entire geometry (CAD surface import), design (draping simulation), FEA (pre- and post-processing) and manufacture (ply-book preparation) sequence of design work.
Anaglyph says Laminate Tools interfaces with most industry standards, both CAD and FEA. LAP analyses any type of composite laminate subjected to in-plane loads and moments. Typically, the software is used in preliminary design for tailoring a stacking sequence and optimising the design by inspecting the laminate behaviour layer by layer. Finally, CoDA deals with preliminary analysis of sub-components with plate, beam, joint, flange or laminate geometries.
The company explains that, as a natural extension to the software products, and based on their customers need for accuracy in composites manufacturing, Anaglyph developed PlyMatch, a visual technology for hand lay-up composites manufacturing and repair. Anaglyph say it is easy to use, compact and mobile, and that PlyMatch is an alternative, or a complement, to existing ply-placement methods. It is ideal for complex, highly curved parts, or those including cavities. It also states the upgraded PlyMatch 2014 offers improved accuracy, deviation measurement features and even better ease of use for the operator.
Visitors will be able to try PlyMatch on moulds lent by users in automotive and aerospace at Anaglyph’s stand S48 in Pavillion 7.3.
