VISTAGY and Delta Sigma Corporation Partner to Streamline Airframe Fastener Installation and Verification Processes
Joint solution provides standardized fastener management process that saves documentation time andeliminates manual tasks
WALTHAM, Mass., (USA), September 20, 201 — VISTAGY, Inc., a leading provider of industry-specific engineering software and services, today announced a strategic partnership with Delta Sigma Corporation, a recognized leader in projection guided assembly. VISTAGY’s SyncroFIT® 2011 software for designing and manufacturing complex assemblies and large aerostructures together with Delta Sigma’s ProjectionWorks provide a best-in-class solution for managing fasteners, from defining the placement of holes and fasteners to verifying the finished part.
SyncroFIT is the only production-proven, CAD-integrated, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for managing the complexities of airframe assemblies, with an emphasis on fastened structures. It increases the efficiency and accuracy of developing airframe assemblies by enabling commercial 3D CAD users to fully define and manage fasteners, holes, joints, and interfaces between parts within complex assemblies. ProjectionWorks is an optical projection assembly system that enables manufacturers to install and verify thousands of fasteners quickly and without using stacks of drawings and manuals.
Integrating these solutions delivers detailed fastener data directly from the 3D model to the manufacturing floor, enabling airframe manufacturers to deploy an end-to-end turnkey solution and eliminating the need for custom integrations.
“For years, aircraft manufacturers have been struggling with how to define, install, and validate fasteners,” said Roger Richardson, president of Delta Sigma. “By combining SyncroFIT, which has set the industry standard for managing fasteners, and ProjectionWorks, we are providing aerospace manufacturers with a great way to standardize and streamline what was formerly an extremely onerous process. This solution eliminates thousands of pages of documentation and error-prone manual processes.”
“The ProjectionWorks technology is a great example of how SyncroFIT data can quickly be reused to support downstream processes,” said Steve Peck, director of product and market strategy at VISTAGY. “Delta Sigma’s technology continues to build on the primary goals our customers have for speeding assembly processes and eliminating errors that lead to scrap and rework.”
Please join Roger Richardson of Delta Sigma, Bill Hasenjaeger of CGTech, and Steve Peck of VISTAGY on Thursday, September 22 at 11 EDT for an informative Webcast entitled: Assemble High Quality Airframes with NEW SyncroFIT 2011. This Webcast will highlight how to increase the overall efficiency and accuracy of developing airframe assemblies by enabling commercial 3D CAD users to fully define and manage fasteners, holes, joints, and interfaces between parts within complex assemblies.
