The adoption of composites in mining, construction and agricultural equipment has increased steadily, driven by greater focus on increasing fuel efficiency and load capacities. Companies are also targeting the use of fiber-reinforced plastic components in high visibility and “user touch” areas to differentiate their equipment. At the same time, your equipment endures load conditions and durability requirements that challenge the application of composites. There is no doubt that applying these materials to equipment design requires a shift in engineering tool and skill sets, but also dramatic changes in manufacturing technology knowledge and application. Successful integration of composite components for heavy equipment requires effective communication and tools among multidisciplinary teams throughout the product lifecycle.

Support highly complex and detailed end-to-end design, analysis and manufacturing processes with our proven solutions for advanced composite part development. Leverage structured, integrated model-based design processes that support specialized capabilities for simulation, test and verification management to ensure that components can meet the toughest environments. Extend the digital model to the manufacturing floor with process simulation, production support and verification tools that support new and innovative manufacturing processes while helping to streamline costs.

Solution Capabilities

Bill of Materials Management

Manage multiple multi-CAD components and assembly structure BOMs, such as engineering BOM, manufacturing engineering structure and BOP, to ensure the right part is used on the correct machine.

Composite Design & Analysis

Increase your creative application of structural composites in the cabin, engine bay or exterior by leveraging leading manufacturing simulation tools to evaluate the entire process, from conception to laminate definition and ply creation.

Composite Design Integration

Manage the complete manufacturing process for composite parts with a single integrated solution that leverages part geometry to develop the data required for nesting, cutting, laser projection, tape layer, and fiber placement.

Composites

Build and evaluate floor pan and bed structures with unique simulation tools specifically developed to consider the unique challenges of laminated components, including cross-laminate fatigue and laminate separation to progressive damage growth.

Fastening & Joint Design

For design engineers, Syncrofit facilitates an intuitive approach to the authoring of fastener management design data throughout the iterative process of assembly definition, design rule verification, fastener/hole visualization, and documentation release. The software stores the design data, linked to the associated 3D CAD geometry, directly inside the commercial 3D CAD model, completing the 3D product definition.

Mechanical Design Management

Insure all your composite part design and manufacturing data is synchronized and managed in a collaborative environment through the entire part lifecycle. Gain instant feedback on change effectivity and impact.

Product Modeling

Take advantage of a powerful modeling engine and collaborative environment to design attractive and functional structural composite parts.
