ESI Group (Paris, France) has released ESI PAM-COMPOSITES 2017, the latest version of the company’s process simulation software for the manufacture of composites. PAM-COMPOSITES 2017 targets thermoformed acoustic and cosmetic multi-material components typically used in automobile and aircraft interiors. This new version gives users the ability to determine the noise and vibration response of the manufactured product by predicting the stiffness and thickness in each location of the formed part. Typical defects, such as tearing and skin texture modifications induced during manufacturing, can also be anticipated and corrected through simulation. Also new is a grid tracing tool that allows users to analyze the length variation on each segment of the grid as they would do on physical prototypes. Moreover, the new element-elimination tool allows the visualization of physical holes or fiber separations generated during the thermoforming of composite products.
