The Challenge

T.A.P.E. needed to transition from paper-based and 2D design to effi ciently tackle the complex die designs its clients were unable to outsource overseas.

T.A.P.E. chose CATIA V5 for 3D design for its capabilities to handle highly complex projects and its compatibility with its clients’ CATIA software.


With CATIA V5, T.A.P.E. can successfully tackle large projects, create replacement sections for clients’ existing dies, streamline new design review and approval and win new business.
