CATIA Composites Manufacturing (CMK)

Designers benefit from powerful process-oriented tools dedicated to manufacturing detailed design of composites parts

In order to design complex production-ready composites and mass-produce composite parts, manufacturing and engineering teams require highly efficient collaboration throughout the product development process.

CATIA Composites Manufacturing Preparation provides a completely integrated CATIA environment dedicated to manufacturing detailed design of composite parts. It enables engineers to embed all manufacturing constraints early in the composites design process, such as manufacturing skin swapping, material excess definition and 3D multi-splice functionalities.

Design engineers can foster concurrent engineering with physical manufacturing thanks to the fiber deposit simulation, flattening tools with export to nesting, and cutting or laser projection shop floors.
