Dassault Systèmes introduces SolidWorks Plastics Software

Dassault Systèmes unveiled SolidWorks Plastics software, easy-to-use software tools that enable users to predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of plastics part and injection mould design.  The new products run fully embedded inside of SolidWorks, providing part designers and mould makers with familiar and intuitive workflows so they can quickly optimize their part and mould designs for manufacturability. The ability to make design changes early helps ensure that the mould  works right the first time, reducing or eliminating the need for rework and improving part quality. In addition, SolidWorks Plastics provides users with valuable knowledge so they can determine whether changes to the part geometry, mould  design, material selection or processing conditions will have a positive impact on the ability to easily manufacture their products. The SolidWorks Plastics products are based on technology from SIMPOE SAS (SIMPOE), one of the leading providers of plastics injection mould ing simulation software. As a SolidWorks Gold Partner, SIMPOE currently provides fully integrated, fully interoperable, “single window” functionality for SolidWorks. The new solutions products build on the previous relationship and will be offered under the SolidWorks brand.  “Asia is the world’s largest consumer of plastics with per capita consumption of plastic products in India moving towards 2.5 times the GDP growth. The expanding customer base has increased the demand for innovative designing solutions for the plastic industry to meet the requirements of the sector” said Manoj Mehta, Country Manager, India & SAARC, SolidWorks. “The addition of SolidWorks Plastics in our product portfolio is aimed at expanding our product line into new areas while following the traditional SolidWorks focus on ease-of-use and features that provide real-time benefit to customers”
“In the past decade, plastics industry has emerged as the key driver of innovation and application development finding use in numerous industries including new areas of application comprising automotive, defence & aerospace, telecommunications, furniture and electronics” said Ravi Varadarajan, Sr. Country Technical Manager , India & SAARC, SolidWorks. “SolidWorks has been focused towards developing products for varied verticals especially suited to demands of the industry. Introducing simulation for the plastic industry, SolidWorks Plastic software allows designers to evaluate the manufacturability of the parts and mould during the design stages, thereby reducing instances of errors and enhancing product accuracy.”
“Extending our relationship with Dassault Systèmes via the SolidWorks brand allows us to leverage their highly-skilled reseller channel and offer a high-quality, cost-effective solution to help part and mould  designers reduce errors, cut costs and speed time to market,” said Alain DuBois, president and CEO at SIMPOE. “This seamless integration of solutions means a designer never has to leave the familiar SolidWorks environment to optimize their part and mould designs.”  SolidWorks Plastics will be offered in two packages – SolidWorks Plastics Professional for part designers, and SolidWorks Plastics Premium for mould designers and mould makers.
