The composite component promise of superior strength and minimal weight has made the material a very popular choice. From aerospace to running shoes, there are few product groups that do not consider the use of composite materials.
Successful use of composite materials depends heavily on simulation and analysis but also on breaking down the barriers between design, simulation & analysis and manufacturing, calling for designers to understand the properties of the new products they are using and analysts creating structural design changes based on desired performance requirements and manufacturability.
Intrinsys are fortunate to include the National Composite Centre (NCC) as a customer. The NCC is a hot bed of the very latest product development and processes, material and manufacturing sciences. It is where next generation composite product will be defined and it is where Intrinsys support the latest simulation and analysis software, processes and production integration.
The actual benefits of a PLM driven, silo less environment where the traditional demarcation between the design and simulation & analysis functions is removed and a more fluid flow of information can be seen from concept design, through simulation & analysis and product development to manufacturing. Intrinsys understand this environment offering their experience as a range of services to help their customer get the most from the very latest composite materials, design, simulation & analysis and manufacturing processes.
