ESI Group, leading innovator in virtual prototyping software for manufacturing industries, has launched the PAM-COMPOSITES 2016 software solution to provide process and design engineers with its full suite of modules to predict, analyse, and correct manufacturing defects of composite structural components across the complete manufacturing chain.

The cost-effective solution combines the existing modules of ESI Group with new, innovative enhancements that enable process and design engineers to precisely identify the origin of defects and manufacture composite parts with a higher degree of accuracy; reducing material waste the need for costly and time consuming trial and error approaches.

Using the ESI PAM-COMPOSITES solution, process, and design, engineers can tailor simulations to the exact nature of the composite material and their unique shop floor environment to improve process stability and reduce manufacturing defects for a vast range of composites manufacturing processes. These include: draping, thermoforming, Liquid Composites Moulding (LCM), Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM), and curing , as well as two new robot draping processes: Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) and Automated Tape Layering (ATL).

In PAM_COMPOSITES 2016, the newly introduced Design of Experiments (DoE) functionality automatically analyses variations in the composite material and manufacturing process parameters to allow process and design engineers to optimise key influencing parameters and improve process stability.

The new Die Spotting functionality allows process and design engineers to automatically morph existing tools to ensure a perfect contact with the part. This avoids the bridging effects often seen with thermoformed organo-sheet components where resin migration and lack of compaction leads to visible defects. It also allows engineers to avoid the incidence of areas with low fibre content or race tracking during resin injection or infusion.

PAM-COMPOSITES brings together the PAM-FORM, PAM-RTM, and PAM-DISTORTION modules into one, competitively-priced bundle within a process-oriented graphical user interface to free specialist resources and allow all engineers to use this highly intuitive solution. (GK)
