ESI Group has just released the latest version of its PAM-COMPOSITES software. This CAE tool helps process and design engineers to predict, analyze and correct any defects in composite materials that could be introduced through the manufacturing processes.
What's new in ESI PAM-Composites 2018.0:
The new features include the capability to accurately simulate processes like wet compression molding or compression Resin Transfer Molding (C-RTM). Because of the shorten production time, automotive and aeronautic industries are actively analyzing these processes. The new capabilities also include more user-friendliness in the modeling and new post-processing functionalities for thermoforming, curing, warpage… analysis.
About ESI PAM-Composites. ESI PAM-COMPOSITES simulation software helps you target defects early in your composite product’s development cycle, when it’s easier to fine-tune the manufacturing process. With PAM-COMPOSITES, you can:
- Analyze and optimize individual manufacturing operations
- Link these operations by transferring material history from one operation to the next (change in fiber orientations, curing degree, temperature distribution)
- Correct, optimize or validate processes like draping, thermoforming, RTM, infusion or curing, to minimize manufacturing defects, insure reproducibility, and decrease development costs
PAM-COMPOSITES addresses a wide range of composite materials, with a focus on continuous fibers. It can model carbon or glass fibers, thermoset or thermoplastic matrix, dry textiles or pre-pregs.
