FiberSIM® 2010 Enables Engineers to Capitalize on the Latest Advancements in Composite Materials and Processes


Next generation composites engineering solution from VISTAGY optimizes designs and enhances productivity by preserving design intent


WALTHAM, Mass., (USA), November 3, 2010VISTAGY, Inc., a leading provider of industry-specific engineering software and services, today announced the release of FiberSIM® 2010, the latest version of its engineering software for designing and manufacturing innovative, durable and lightweight composite structures. Many features of the new software were inspired by the adoption of composites in a growing number of industries. As a result, FiberSIM 2010 enables companies such as Bombardier Aerospace, Sinomatech Wind Power Blade Co., and Renault F1 Team to deliver optimized products to market by taking full advantage of new innovations in composite materials and manufacturing processes.


FiberSIM 2010 continues to deliver key capabilities to optimize designs and increase productivity throughout the composites design and manufacturing lifecycle—including rapidly adapting to design changes, predicting manufacturability issues, and improving communication between internal departments and the supply chain. FiberSIM can be used individually or as part of VISTAGY's AeroSuite, a comprehensive solution that enables aircraft designers and manufacturers to engineer optimized parts and assemblies in less time at lower cost from preliminary design to quality. AeroSuite also includes SyncroFIT® software for designing and manufacturing complex assemblies and large aerostructures, the Quality Planning Environment™ for developing plans to assess aerostructure quality, and Custom Consulting Services to assist manufacturers in implementing optimized processes for developing composite aerostructures.


Specifically, the new version of FiberSIM provides:







“FiberSIM has been the cornerstone of our composites engineering process for the last eight years,” stated Ian Goddard, senior CAE engineer for Renault F1 Team. “It’s the only comprehensive software product that addresses the entire composites engineering process, meeting challenges from conception to deployment of the vehicles on the track. New functionally in FiberSIM 2010 makes it possible for us to exploit the advantages of the newest materials and processes in an effort to get the most optimized and competitive race cars to the starting line as quickly as possible.”

“FiberSIM 2010 continues to strengthen our solutions for composites engineering by meeting the growing needs of OEMs and suppliers that are designing and building composite parts within the aerospace, automotive, wind energy, and various other industries,” said Steve Peck, director of product and market strategy at VISTAGY. “These manufacturers acknowledge that to take full advantage of the latest advancements in composite materials and processes, they need to focus on optimizing designs to achieve the ideal balance between cost, performance, quality, manufacturability, reliability, and maintainability. FiberSIM 2010 gives them the tools to meet that objective.”
