Anaglyph (London, U.K.) is featuring its composites design and analysis software tools: LAP, CoDA and LAMINATE TOOLS, as well as its PlyMatch technology for ply placement. Laminate Tools addresses geometry (CAD surface import), design (draping simulation), FEA (pre- and post- processing) and manufacture (ply-book preparation) sequence of design work. Laminate Tools interfaces with most industry standards, both CAD and FEA. LAP (Laminate Analysis Program) analyzes any type of composite laminate subjected to in-plane loads and moments. Typically, the software is used in preliminary design for tailoring a stacking sequence and optimising the design by inspecting the laminate behavior layer by layer. CoDA (Component Design Analysis) deals with preliminary analysis of sub-components with plate, beam, joint, flange or laminate geometries.

PlyMatch is a visual technology for hand lay-up composites manufacturing and repair. It is designed to be an alternative, or a complement, to existing ply-placement methods. It is said to be well suited for complex, highly curved parts, or those including cavies. The upgraded PlyMatch 2014 offers improved accuracy, deviation measurement features and improved ease of use for the operator. Visitors at the show will be able to try PlyMatch on molds lent by users in automotive and aerospace.
