TRI Engineering Deploys Dassault Systèmes’ PLM Solutions to Fully Digitize Robot Teaching

Optimizes End-To-End Process and Improves Communications With Clients

TOKYO, June 7, 2010 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that TRI Engineering has fully digitized its Robot Hemming System, a car parts production system, by deploying Dassault Systèmes’ PLM solutions.

The solutions enable TRI Engineering to optimize the whole process in 3D and improve communications with its customers.
 
In the car manufacturing industry, the demand for 3D data has accelerated, following the auto OEMs. Under these market conditions, TRI Engineering decided to deploy a 3D solution and selected CATIA because of its proven reputation as a de facto standard in the auto industry. With the aim of expanding 3D use in the future, the company also decided to deploy DELMIA and ENOVIA. This enables it to increase efficiency and product quality by integrating design, analysis, robot motion simulation, and teaching using 3D, and also improving communications with its clients. 

“We can see the huge merits of using 3D dynamically,” said Takeharu Oka, vice president, Design and Sales, TRI Engineering. “We use 3D for robot motion simulation, presentation for clients and explanation using CAE, which improve communications drastically.  We are planning to expand 3D use further for more efficient data management, structural analysis and manufacturing simulation.”

"We are very pleased that an ambitious company such as TRI Engineering has selected our PLM solutions,” said Tomohiko Suetsugu, president, Japan, Dassault Systèmes. "In the auto industry, our solutions have received a great reputation, but the usage of 3D has expanded beyond design and production as a communication tool. We are committed to continue providing useful solutions for our customers.”
