Fischer Advanced Composite Components AG Purchases FiberSIM for Boeing 787 Program

VISTAGY : 01 July, 2006  (Company News)
VISTAGY, Inc., the leading developer of computer-aided-design (CAD) integrated software for the design and manufacture of composite parts, today announced that Fischer Advanced Composite Components (FACC) AG, based in Ried/Innkreis, Austria, has purchased FiberSIM 5.0 software.
FACC is using the new Advanced Composite Engineering Environment (ACEE) in FiberSIM to design and manufacture the winglets for the Boeing 737-NG and Boeing 757-200 aircrafts, as well as the flap track fairings for the Airbus A380. FiberSIM software will also be used in the future to design and manufacture various components for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

'In the past, FACC has successfully used FiberSIM tools solely for manufacturing,' says Roland Zeilinger, Head of Design at FACC Vienna. 'As part of our overall strategy of streamlining the product development process, we will make FiberSIM an essential part of design, as well.'

'With input from VISTAGY customers, each year we have added important capabilities to FiberSIM,' says Steve Luby, president and CEO of VISTAGY. 'FiberSIM's revolutionary ACEE supports multiple new design methodologies for a wide range of composite parts and manufacturing processes. FACC has recognized FiberSIM's expanded design potential, and we look forward to helping them take the fullest advantage of the software.'

FACC has longstanding expertise in manufacturing composite parts for aircraft. The company previously used FiberSIM to generate ply lay-up data for automated cutting machines and laser pattern projection equipment to manufacture components for the wings of the Airbus A380. The product development path for those components was complex and involved several data translations between multiple engineering software tools. The upgrade to FiberSIM 5.0 is part of a broader effort to make digital design as integrated and efficient as possible.

FACC intends to implement the full range of FiberSIM's functionality, from preliminary design to manufacturing, including the following new tools in the ACEE:

Zone-based design for defining laminate specifications and requirements

Dynamic generation of zone transitions and ply boundaries

Generation of variable offset surfaces

Smart darting and splicing
