Chengdu Aircraft selects VISTAGY ' s FiberSIM(r) as foundation for world-class composites design and manufacturing process

VISTAGY, Inc., a leading global provider of specialized engineering software, today announced a partnership with Chengdu Aircraft Industrial (Group) Co. Ltd., the leading Chinese supplier to the global aviation industry, to create a world-class 3D model-based composite aircraft design and manufacturing process based on VISTAGY's FiberSIM® software. This revolutionary process establishes Chengdu Aircraft as a leader in delivering the world's most complex and innovative aerospace structures made of advanced composite materials. FiberSIM will be Chengdu Aircraft's software solution for all future composite part development programs.

"During extensive evaluation and testing, VISTAGY's FiberSIM delivered impressive results such as design cycle reductions of 60 percent and a significant reduction in total development time," said Youyi Wen, director of composites department, Chengdu Aircraft Industrial Group. "FiberSIM is used for conceptual and detailed design, not just manufacturing design, and has excelled at every composites development challenge. Its flexible and open 3D engineering environment makes it the perfect foundation for our innovative composites development process, and gives Chengdu Aircraft a formidable edge in the aerospace industry."

Chengdu Aircraft utilizes FiberSIM's comprehensive set of tools to develop composite aircraft products and parts, such as wing skins and rudders for commercial airliners, from early conceptual design through product delivery. A composites engineering process includes many unique methodologies, such as ply-based design, fiber placement and tape laying, that are unlike any other product development process. FiberSIM supports all composite methodologies and processes, and provides the industry's most complete platform for sharing design data across existing applications and downstream processes. From structural-based design to ply generation, part performance simulation, document generation and manufacturing, FiberSIM supports all the processes necessary for composites design and manufacture.

Also, FiberSIM's open and flexible architecture was a critical factor in Chengdu Aircraft's decision to utilize the software. The company needed a solution that would enable efficient and easy interfacing with industry leading external applications for analysis, resin transfer molding, and other XML driven solutions. Without a high level of data sharing and communication between these applications, engineers would not succeed in accurately developing their composite products. FiberSIM is helping Chengdu engineers reduce costs and delivery times, allowing them to focus their effort on ensuring product accuracy, meeting deadlines and driving innovation in their designs.

"Chengdu Aircraft's partnership with VISTAGY showcases our expertise in providing the most advanced and results-driven software solutions for the development of airframes and aerospace structures," said Mamoru Iguchi, general manager, Asia-Pacific at VISTAGY, Inc. "We take pride in being selected as a cornerstone of Chengdu's future in composite airframe development."
