Enhances 3DEXPERIENCE with injection molding simulation for plastics design-to-manufacturing process.

Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D digital mock up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announces the acquisition of SIMPOE, a leader in plastic injection molding simulation. The acquisition of SIMPOE, based in Torcy, France, expands Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its SIMULIA, CATIA, and SolidWorks applications to create the most powerful portfolio of materials-intensive manufacturing simulation solutions on the market. With more than 3,000 active users working for major part designers, producers, and mold makers, companies such as Canon and Panasonic rely on SIMPOE for its leading plastic injection simulation solutions. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.

Plastic injection molding, one of the most common processes of plastic forming, is used in the mass production of complex and sophisticated parts. SIMPOE will continue to offer its comprehensive solution, covering the whole plastics injection molding process.  These scalable packages cover a wide range of functionalities, from simple to advanced, and will complement existing SIMULIA, CATIA and SolidWorks solutions in the plastic part domain.  The underlying technology will enhance future 3DEXPERIENCE industry solution experiences, leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ existing design-to-manufacturing expertise in composites and sheet metal, to offer an integrated experience covering the entire plastic-part process.
