Dassault aquisition injects new power to simulation

Dassault Systèmes, a provider of 3D design software, 3D digital mock-up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, has acquired Simpoe, a leader in plastic injection molding simulation.

The acquisition expands Dassault Systèmes’ 3DExperience platform and its Simulia, Catia, and SolidWorks applications to create what it describes as the most powerful portfolio of materials-intensive manufacturing simulation solutions on the market.

With more than 3,000 active users working for major part designers, producers, and mold makers, companies such as Canon and Panasonic rely on Simpoe for its leading plastic injection simulation solutions. The amount of the transaction was not disclosed.

'Plastics form a crucial part of today’s products. They are increasingly complex, both in shape and production, as well as the speed with which they are brought to market.  Simplifying the design and manufacturing of plastics is therefore a critical part of many industries’ product creation,' said Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes.  

'Simpoe’s simulation technology will contribute to the 3DExperience platform by helping our clients validate designs and injection molding approaches quickly.'
