Composites Engineering

Aerospace & Defense, Ground Transportation, Heavy Industry & Machinery


Composite materials, because of their lightweight properties, strength, and durability, represent key facilitators in the race to reduce carbon emissions. However, when making the shift to industrial mass production, new challenges arise with these materials, like how to scale up production to respond to market needs how to swiftly adapt to new materials to keep up with the speed of innovation in composites and how to price final products to meet market requirements. Often, this calls for quick iteration and sometimes a new approach to material configuration and process parameters and this is where virtual prototyping comes into the equation.

With the unique capabilities of ESI PAM-COMPOSITES, you can study each step of the composites manufacturing chain through a process-oriented workflow. Material information and history (local shearing, local fiber content, and orientation, degree of cure, etc.), as well as geometrical properties (shape, thickness, etc.), are seamlessly transferred from one stage of the manufacturing chain to the next, ensuring maximum feedback accuracy when adjusting the process parameters to correct defects and reduce production cycle time.
