Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC), a premier supplier to the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers has purchased the latest version of the Fibersim portfolio of software for composites engineering from Siemens PLM Software
Siemens PLM Software is a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management software and services.
AIDC will use Fibersim software to seamlessly transfer their customers’ CAD files to drive manufacturing processes as well as develop flat patterns and laser data files.
AIDC supports Taiwan’s national defence industry, serving some of the world’s premier aerospace companies such as Boeing, Bombardier, General Electric and Airbus. Employing leading edge technologies, materials and manufacturing processes to develop some of today’s most advanced aircraft programs, AIDC has been using Fibersim to engineer composite parts and has now invested in the latest version, Fibersim 2012 to develop skin panels, frames, doors and stringers.
Mike Lee, special assistant to the chairman of AIDC explains that the new version of Fibersim makes it easier to manage the development of large parts, helping to save time and avoid errors while enabling the company to achieve better efficiency and quality when designing and manufacturing composite parts. AIDC will use Fibersim to work specifically with CATIA software CAD data.
According to John O’Connor, director of aerospace product & market strategy for the Specialized Engineering Software business segment of Siemens PLM Software, being a premier supplier to the aerospace industry, especially in the area of composites, AIDC’s confidence in Fibersim 2012 says a lot about the software.
