WALTHAM, MA, (USA), September 23, 2008 — VISTAGY, Inc., a leading global provider of specialized engineering software, today announced a strategic partnership with CGTech, a recognized leader in Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software for numerical control (CNC/NC) simulation, verification, optimization and analysis software technology for manufacturing. VISTAGY’s FiberSIM® and CGTech’s VERICUT Composite Programming and Simulation Suite (VCP) together provide a best-in-class solution for rapid design and manufacturing iterations to optimize the development of composite structures produced by automated fiber placement (AFP) machines.

This integration enables designers to take into account AFP manufacturing requirements early on and to seamlessly transfer composite design information from FiberSIM to VCP software for creating and validating CNC programs for automated fiber placement (AFP) machines. By enabling more iterations faster and better feedback later in the development process, firms will be better able to evaluate the tradeoffs between manufacturing complexity and cost. It will allow engineers to design specifically for the manufacturing process and allow them to take advantage of innovative uses of composite materials.

“There’s a natural synergy between our products that creates a fast, powerful and flexible software environment for companies designing and manufacturing composite parts,” said Bill Hasenjaeger, CGTech product marketing manager. “FiberSIM’s ability to work with multiple commercial 3D CAD systems combined with VCP’s ability to create CNC programs for multiple AFP systems gives customers the flexibility to choose the best solutions to meet their business requirements."

“Given the rapid growth in the use of composites in industries that develop highly complex structures, the partnership between VISTAGY and CGTech is a natural fit,” said Olivier Guillermin, VISTAGY product and market strategy director. “By integrating our best-in-class software we are able to support a state-of-the art design-through-manufacturing solution that enables companies to produce optimum composites designs and manufacturing processes. I believe this timely partnership will further enable us to support the aerospace industry in the accelerated adoption of composites as the material of choice in the future.”
