Plasan Carbon Composites USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Plasan Sasa of Israel, supplies carbon composites parts to leading automotive OEMs worldwide. The company has made body components, including hoods, roofs and fenders, for the Chevy Corvette and Dodge Viper and is leading the charge to bring composites to automotive frame and sub-structural components, increasing strength, passenger safety, and fuel efficiency.

The Challenge

Plasan Carbon Composites needed to give its automotive customers fast, accurate quotes and deliver high-quality composites parts quickly, with less physical waste and improved material estimates.

Dassault Systèmes Response

To create accurate-first-time ply lay-up plans, Plasan chose a Dassault Systèmes solutions suite that includes CATIA Composites Design integrated with Simulayt’s fiber modeling and linking solutions and SIMULIA Abaqus Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for realistic stress simulations.

Benefits

Plasan can now deliver quotes faster with more accurate estimates of material use, cost and reliability while improving accuracy and reducing waste.
