SpaceClaim and SIMPOE Announce Integration of SpaceClaim Engineer and Simpoe-Mold

Tuesday, 30 October 2012

CONCORD, MA, and TORCY, FRANCE, October 30, 2012SpaceClaim, the leading provider of flexible and affordable 3D for engineering design and manufacturing, and SIMPOE, providers of plastic injection simulation solutions, announced today a direct integration between SpaceClaim Engineer and Simpoe-Mold.

Simpoe-Mold and SpaceClaim Engineer work together to let anyone involved in the development and manufacturing of plastic parts optimize the design and the tooling of their parts while minimizing manufacturing costs. “The direct coupling between SpaceClaim Engineer and Simpoe-Mold plastic injection simulation software provides an unprecedented solution for plastic parts designers, mold-makers, and part manufacturers to drastically streamline their product development process,” said Thierry Leroy, SIMPOE’s Chief Operating Officer. “SpaceClaim and SIMPOE both emphasize ease of use, speed, and affordability, and our partnership with SpaceClaim is a natural fit to offer state-of-the-art technology to the plastics industry.”

SpaceClaim Engineer’s 3D direct modeling technology combined with Simpoe-Mold’s unmatched plastics molding simulation lets any design or manufacturing engineer optimize plastic designs for injection molding.  Mold engineers can evaluate designs from any CAD system and adjust them as necessary, regardless of how the model was originally created. “Combining the model preparation capabilities of SpaceClaim Engineer with the plastics molding strengths of Simpoe-Mold provides the design engineer a cost-effective, comprehensive plastics molding solution,” said Rich Moore, VP of Business Development, SpaceClaim. “This integration will ensure we offer a leading-edge solution to the plastics industry and expand our market presence, while removing waste associated with traditional feature-based CAD,” he added.

A webinar will be conducted Thursday, November 15, at 11:30AM eastern time to showcase this integration as well as SpaceClaim and Simpoe-Mold functionality. Sign up for this webinar.

SIMPOE is a software developer specializing in plastic injection molding simulation solutions. SIMPOE software allows significant costs savings of physical mold prototypes, material cost optimization, as well as a drastic reduction of the time to market of new products. Easy to use, easy to learn and affordable, SIMPOE solutions are for the mold specialist as well as the mechanical engineer who, in a collaborative product development approach, wants to take into account plastic parts manufacturing constraints early in the product design stage. Simpoe is the missing link to implement a true Collaborative Product Development policy in the plastics industry. SIMPOE products let users optimize molds, optimize material costs, and launch new products faster while saving money as well. For more information on SIMPOE, please visit www.simpoe.com.
