DELMIA adds value

Dassault Systemes has appointed Oxford-based design solutions company Desktop Engineering a value-added reseller for its DELMIA software


French 3D design specialist Dassault Systemes has appointed Oxford-based design solutions company Desktop Engineering as a value-added reseller for its DELMIA software.



The DELMIA software provides users with the technology and collaborative environment to digitally define the way products are made. According to Desktop Engineering, it compliments the company’s existing Dassault Systemes 3D model-based design-to-manufacture software, systems and service provision.



Geoff Haines, MD of Desktop Engineering said: ‘By adding DELMIA to our portfolio we can offer an enhanced capability to our current and future customers in all sectors of industry. These include traditional large scale aero, auto and other OEMs as well as their suppliers – many of which will benefit from the power that DELMIA can bring to the SME user.’



Desktop Engineering plans to extend the use of DELMIA, in conjunction with Gehry Technologies Digital Project (DP) into the construction industry.



Geoff Haines said: ‘Initial trials on a major building project in Hong Kong have shown that modelling and optimising the shuttering and concreting work-flow on a 70 storey building reduced the work per floor from six to four days.’



Other construction industry applications for DELMIA are planned, and Desktop Engineering expects similar time reductions.



Haines said: ‘We are bringing DELMIA to multiple sectors of UK industry and showing how this powerful technology can benefit companies of any size by improving the productivity and efficiency of capital equipment, plant and personnel through the use of 3D simulation software.’
