Aerospace Industrial Development Corp. (AIDC) has purchased the latest version of the Siemens PLM Software Fibersim portfolio of software for composites engineering. AIDC will be able to transfer customers’ CAD files into Fibersim to drive manufacturing processes, as well as to develop flat patterns and laser data files.
AIDC supports Taiwan’s national defense industry and is that country’s leading aerospace supplier. For more than a decade AIDC has used Fibersim to engineer composite parts and now, motivated by the need to keep pace with an anticipated increase in workload for current and future aircraft programs, plans to use Fibersim 2012 to develop skin panels, frames, doors and stringers.
“Fibersim has a long track record of success in the aerospace industry, and that was a big consideration in this purchase,” said Mike Lee, special assistant to the chairman of AIDC. “The new version of Fibersim makes it easier to manage the development of large parts. It can help us save time and avoid errors. Overall, we expect that it will enable us to achieve better efficiency and quality when designing and manufacturing composite parts.”
