ESI Group/PPE: Cooperation
ESI Group, Paris, France, a supplier of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes, and the Pôle de Plasturgie de l’Est (PPE), Saint-Avold Moselle, France, an applied research technology center specialized in composite materials, have signed an agreement to develop an offer covering the entire lifecycle of composite parts and structures manufactured through injection and infusion processes. The goal of this partnership is to provide a complete offering in response to new industry challenges for composite parts and structures development. This joint development aims at offering design and simulation tools to several industries, such as aeronautics, aerospace, transportation, shipbuilding, and wind energy.
The offering includes several of ESI Group’s composite simulation solutions and the PPE’s RTM Process 2 software suite. RTM Process 2, consisting of a permeability database and tools for pre-sizing and for technical and financial studies, will reinforce ESI Group’s composite simulation platform. Engineering services offered by ESI Group and the PPE include software training and research to assist customers in the development of RTM injection and infusion processes. Thanks to this partnership, customers can now benefit from a more comprehensive services offering that includes crash simulation, composite parts impact, sizing simulation, as well as mold design and process development.
