ESI Group, a supplier of digital simulation software for prototyping and manufacturing processes, and the Pole de Plasturgie de l'Est (PPE), an applied research technology center specializing in composite materials, have signed an agreement to develop an offer covering the entire life cycle of composite parts and structures manufactured through injection and infusion processes.

The goal of this partnership is to provide a complete offering in response to new industry challenges for composite parts and structures development. This joint development aims at offering design and simulation tools to several industries, such as wind energy, aeronautics, aerospace, transportation and shipbuilding.

The offering includes several of ESI Group's composite simulation solutions and PPE's RTM PROCESS 2 software suite. RTM PROCESS 2, consisting of a permeability database and tools for pre-sizing and for technical and financial studies, will reinforce ESI Group's composite simulation platform.

"When dealing with composite materials, the characteristics and performance of the part are closely related to the material properties," says Patrick de Luca, composite solution manager at ESI Group. "The ESI Composite platform is based on this core characteristic: The material properties are tracked and transported through each step of the life cycle: design, manufacturing and, ultimately - usage, possibly involving an accident scenario."

Engineering services offered by ESI Group and PPE include software training and research to assist customers in the development of RTM injection and infusion processes. Thanks to this partnership, customers can now benefit from a more comprehensive services offering that includes crash simulation, composite parts impact, sizing simulation, as well as mold design and process development.
