Managing composite complexity with specification-driven design and manufacturing

Composite Engineering and Manufacturing

The benefits of composite materials derive from the ability to truly engineer the performance of the part by varying thicknesses, fiber angles, material types, and part shapes.These myriad design variables produce inherent complexity that is unique to composite parts, and inextricably link the part geometry, material behavior and manufacturing process.Only by mastering the intersection of these three characteristics can the full potential of composites be unlocked.
Fibersim provides the key with flexible design methodologies that capture the specifications from analysis and efficiently flow them through the manufacturing process to produce an optimized composite part that can be produced on budget.

Composite Engineering and Manufacturing is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
