Virtual Manufacturing of Auto/Aero Components using Composites

24 April 2021 - 4 June 2021
11:00 AM (IST)

Virtual manufacturing of Composite and Plastic components in Aero and Automotive application is the next big thing as there is increased dependency for light weight composite component with structural durability in both Aero and Auto sectors.  Auto and Aero makers strive to reach their goals without sacrificing strength, stiffness, or performance of the manufactured components. The objective is to thrive OE’s and Suppliers towards light weighting technology thereby making use of composites and plastics helping them to maintain the cost effectiveness along with the compatibility for mass production. Virtual manufacturing plays a pivotal role to understand pain points , manufacturability and design changes if required through simulation thereby reducing the scrap rate and labor time.

Join Live workshop on SMC Process

Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) is a proven technology for manufacturing non-structural parts in large production series. It is already widely used to achieve multi-purpose lightweight engineering at lower cost. However, for its usage on structural components, engineers need to estimate local material properties induced by manufacturing in advance, at design stage. Hence making  SMC simulation possible at early stage become a must to understand and control the fiber reactions during Manufacturing and thus make proper design adjustments and validation. 

ESI PAM-COMPOSITE has integrated the SMC module in its industry proven composites simulation solution. In a single simulation, the complete SMC process is predicted accurately, starting from the forming of the charge until its compression. Manufacturing results can then be transferred in a seamless way to dynamic or static structural analysis.
