VISTAGY’s Transformative Role in Rapidly Evolving Composites Market to be Highlighted at JEC Show
Attendees will learn how VISTAGY’s leading edge FiberSIM® software and composites expertise are ideally suited to deliver industry-specific solutions
WALTHAM, MA, (USA), March 23, 2010 — VISTAGY, Inc., a leading provider of industry-specific engineering software and services, will be exhibiting at the JEC Composites Show 2010 at Stand #T45. The event runs from April 13-15 at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, Hall 1 in Paris, France.
As more industries have adopted composites and the range of materials and processes have greatly expanded, the design and manufacturing challenges have become far more complicated and industry-specific. Manufacturers that use a substantial amount of composites wrestle every day with how they can optimize part performance, reduce product development cycles and stay within budget.
JEC show attendees will learn how upcoming innovations to VISTAGY’s FiberSIM® composites engineering software will provide effective solutions to these challenges and transform how aerospace, automotive, space, wind energy, marine and jet engine manufacturers engineer their products.
New advancements include support of:
• New materials, such as non-crimped fibers and multi-layer laminates, as well as new process solutions for forming and other automated manufacturing processes, such as fiber placement.
• Rapid design changes, which enable engineers to efficiently conduct trade studies and evaluate design alternatives based on metrics, such as weight.
• An improved link between analysis and design, which enables engineers to make more design iterations more quickly, resulting in optimized parts.
• Communication of best practices and design standards throughout an organization and its supply chain so engineers can produce more consistent, easily repeatable parts and products.
Other highlights at the VISTAGY stand include daily presentations delivered by Renault F1 Team senior CAE engineer, Ian Goddard, entitled: Improving Composites Engineering Processes at Renault F1 Team. Mr. Goddard will discuss how his organization has transformed its composites engineering processes by using VISTAGY software and professional services. His presentation will take place on the following days and times:
Tuesday, April 13th: 14:00
Wednesday, April 14th: 11:00 & 14:00
Thursday, April 15th: 11:00
Also at the show, Dr. Olivier Guillermin, VISTAGY director of product and market strategy, will deliver a presentation entitled: Managing the Complexities of Composite Aircraft Assemblies on Wednesday, April 14th from 14:30 – 17:00 as part of the JEC Composites Simulation Conference. Dr. Guillermin will be discussing the key elements necessary to successfully handle the huge volumes of highly interdependent design data within composite aircraft assemblies.
Show attendees are invited to visit the VISTAGY Stand (#T45) and take part in the VISTAGY Roadmap to Composites Engineering Success Program to learn how the company is working with a variety of industry-leading technology and equipment suppliers to offer comprehensive, open and flexible solutions for composites analysis, design, manufacturing, assembly and quality planning.
