Torcy, France, SIMPOE, leaders in plastic injection simulation software, announces the integration of its fully embedded plastic injection simulation solution SimpoePro with the PTC Creo.
The application will be available when Creo begins shipment, currently expected in June 2011.
SIMPOE, a member of the PTC PartnerAdvantage Program at the Gold Tier, was selected as an early adopter of Creo technology and demonstrated SimpoePro at the Worldwide Creo launch on October 28th in Boston. With SimpoePro, PTC customers involved in the design, development, tooling and manufacturing of plastic parts will be able to optimize the design of their plastic parts, minimize tooling as well as manufacturing costs, without ever leaving their familiar everyday Creo graphic user environment.
SimpoePro offers the ease of use, speed and affordability of all SIMPOE solutions, and addresses the complete injection process, from part filling to part warp age.
SimpoePro currently supports Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 (formerly known as PTC Pro/ENGINEER 5.0). When Creo begins shipment customers will have access to the first fully embedded and complete plastic injection simulation solution to optimize the design and manufacturing costs of their plastic parts!
Michael M. Campbell, PTC’s Divisional Vice President ,Design and Visualization Products, commented: “SIMPOE’s early and successful commitment to the Creo demonstrates the power of our vision. Partners such as SIMPOE play a critical role in extending the value of Creo for customers.”
Thierry LEROY, SIMPOE Chief Operating Officer, said “Porting our software on the Creo was an easier than expected task, which reflects the quality and the openness of the API provided by PTC. The ease of use and scalability of SIMPOE solutions really matches the PTC Creo positioning. With SimpoePro, each person involved in the design, development, tooling or manufacturing of plastic parts can have access to the right simulation tools to perform their task in the product development process, to optimize product design and minimize manufacturing costs.”
