CAD/CAE Development

Sustainable CAD/CAE Body-In-White engineering

In our CAD/CAE departments, we grow our long-term specialization in BIW and Exterior & Interior modules development. The combination of rigorous body-in-white module development expertise (20yrs in CAD/CAE and Prototyping) and cost-advantageous company location in the Czech Republic, offers a strong potential in saving time, costs and worries. Our experienced external CAD/CAE capacities help to better control the development costs and projects deadlines in the typically fluctuating capacity needs environment.

CAD Development

In the field of CAD, we like to apply new ideas and methods, to think about the final product user, and to project these considerations in our design.

To support the development costs reduction, we have developed our own methodology of parametric modeling in the Catia environment, called REP (Rapidly Editable Parts). This methodology enables time-saving model changes during the parts development and/or their subsequent conversion to a new generation. We continue to develop this methodology also for the complete assemblies (REA, Rapidly Editable Assemblies).

Specialization

Traditionally, we specialize in the development of these car modules:

  • Front area – bonnet, wing, front end, bumper, grill, water channel cover
  • Back area – boot, boot lid, bumper
  • BIW – structural parts, special modifications
  • Interior – seats, door pannel, trims
  • Door – structural parts, trims
  • Others – module carrier, roof rack, glazing, exterior trims

Range of services

In CAD, we cover the full range of services, reaching from pre-development to the detailed and technical drawings:

  • Design proposals
  • Scans processing – A-class surfacing
  • Concepts, pre-development
  • Kinematic mechanisms
  • Sheet metal and plastic components development
  • Technical documentation, PDM lists

SW

We are trained in- and use -the following software:

  • CATIA V5 – Generative Shape Design (GSD), Feestyle Shaper (FSS), DMU Kinematics Symulator (KIN), DMU Space Analysis (SPA), Functional Tolerancing and Annotations (FTA), Quick Surface Reconstruction (QSR)
  • ICEM Surf – Master, Magic, Scan
  • ISO Draw
  • Inventor

CAE - Numerical Simulations

Specialization
