Innovative Catia V5 applications to enhance manufacturing processes

PANOGEN-CATIA V5 solution for the manufacture of sheet metal and composites parts

PANOGEN provides a comprehensive range of tools, including basic parts programming, automatic part nesting, post-processing, and integration with off-the-shelf ERP applications. It enhances Catia V5 manufacturing functionalities for sheet metal and composite cutting technologies, including milling, laser, water jet, and cutter operations.

The integration of PANOGEN in the CATIA V5 platform for sheet metal manufacturing applications will enable users to operate within the same environment throughout the product lifecycle. This integration facilitates complete recovery of the manufacturing process if a part needs to be changed. Featuring user-friendly menus, CATIA V5-based PANOGEN will cut programming and product machining times and reduce development costs.

Developed initially to meet the needs of aerospace manufacturers, PANOGEN V5 now addresses all industrial applications.

TAPELAY application for Forest-Liné machines

The Tapelay application, developped by CIMPA and integrated in Catia V5 workbench, automates tape cutting and laying for Forest-Liné machines.

Tapelay comprises 2 sets of tools: Tape Generation enables to configure tape creation from composite manufacturing plies and to analyse and correct gaps and overlaps. Tape Manufacturing automates the tape laying and cutting process with ultra-sonic and laser technologies.
