The modern manufacturing requires companies to reduce product development time and capitalize their know-how so that they can respond quickly to customer needs. In order to make it happen, they must expand their ability to innovate by automating redundant tasks and focusing on innovative projects.
CATIA – Jig and Tooling creation simply and quickly creates all the elements of tooling including structures (linear or curved), plates, using standard or user-defined sections, generic, and user tooling components. Benefiting from a rich variety of standard and user-defined components with embedded drilling and manufacturing information, the engineer is able to design faster than ever and to focus on added value tasks. Fully integrated in the CATIA environment, the designer is able, for instance, to seamlessly perform extensive stress analysis on his structure elements and beams, create drafting, or generate all information needed for NC programming.
