JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Europe 2012 - TruPLAN is a comprehensive software solution that makes it possible for composite design engineers to run multiple “what-if” scenarios to test the manufacturability of composite parts during both the Conceptual Design and Detailed Design Phases.
TruPLAN allows manufacturers to quickly test which manufacturing process will have the biggest effects on costs and production rates.
TruPLAN is based on multiple advanced optimization algorithms and assesses the cost-impact of unique design features and surface definitions across multiple manufacturing processes, such as: Automated Fiber Placement (AFP), Automated Tape Laying (ATL), Hand Layup (HLU) or any combination of these strategies. First, TruPLAN allows manufacturers to see if a part can even be produced; and second, TruPLAN provides objective data that highlights the manufacturing strategy or combination of strategies that tests show to be the most cost-effective based on material size, throughput, facility requirements, etc.
