VISTAGY Confirms Position as the Composites Engineering Software Leader in the Chinese Aerospace Market
Nine firms leverage VISTAGY’s FiberSIM® software and aerospace expertise to implement leading edge composite design and manufacturing processes
WALTHAM, Mass., (USA), January 12, 2010 — VISTAGY, Inc., a leading provider of industry-specific engineering software and services, today announced that its FiberSIM® composites engineering software continues to be adopted as the product of choice by the Chinese aircraft industry. Recent sales expand the use of FiberSIM by established customers, such as the Beijing Aeronautical Manufacturing and Technology Institute, Beijing Institute of Aeronautical Materials, Harbin Aircraft Industry Group Corporation, Shanghai Aircraft Design and Research Institute and Xian Aircraft Corporation, as well as by significant new customers, including Chengdu Aircraft Design and Research Institute, Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine, Shenyang Aircraft Design Institute and the Changhe Aircraft Industry Group.
VISTAGY has been at the forefront of composites engineering in the aerospace industry since the company’s founding in 1991. The Chinese firms recognized and benefited from that expertise since adopting FiberSIM in 2002.
As China embarks on its flight into the global commercial aircraft industry with programs such as their ARJ-21 and the COMAC C919, FiberSIM will enable companies to efficiently design composite parts that exploit the benefits of the latest manufacturing processes and materials, leading to improved product performance and reliability while reducing development time and manufacturing cost. One of the ways FiberSIM accomplishes this is by enabling firms to automate non-value added tasks so they can achieve productivity gains and can spend more time focusing on high-value engineering tasks.
“Our Chinese customers are at the forefront of one the fastest growing aerospace markets in the world,” said Mamoru Iguchi, general manager of Asia Pacific for VISTAGY. “We have been working with them for nearly a decade and are pleased to see the success that they have achieved. FiberSIM plays a key role in propelling Chinese aircraft manufacturers to be competitive players in the global commercial airliner market. It’s truly exciting to see the innovation and be a part of the dynamic Chinese aerospace market.”
