Composites Engineering and Manufacturing

Slow, tedious, sequential and non collaborative process... heavy manual operations... Are you ready for a new approach to tackle your composite engineering and manufacturing process? Our Composites Engineering and Manufacturing solutions cover the entire process - from design to analysis and manufacturing - on a single platform.

From Black Art to Industrial Discipline

From aircraft fairing to train noses, boat hulls and wind blades, composites offer compelling opportunities to meet today's increasingly cost-driven market requirements and environmental concerns. Ultra light, strong, highly resistant and durable, composites are ideal for producing lightweight structures with tremendous performance capabilities. Yet, designing and mass-producing complex production-ready composite parts is highly complex and expensive. Traditional solutions in the market today address composites design, analysis and manufacturing processes separately. 

Composites Engineering and Manufacturing solution from Dassault Systèmes covers the entire spectrum of composites product development, from design to analysis and manufacturing, on a single virtual platform. The solution is powered by CATIA for virtual product design, SIMULIA for virtual testing and DELMIA for virtual manufacturing. Developed in partnership with industry leaders, the solution is already in use at leading aircraft and helicopter manufacturers and suppliers, Formula 1 teams, yacht designers and builders, as well as wind energy, construction and consumer goods companies. The Composites Engineering and Manufacturing solution can also be complemented by an array of specialized applications and services from an extensive network of our highly qualified technology partners. Please Join the Community for more information.
