software with its new HyperSizer Express for composite engineering applications. HyperSizer Express delivers key capabilities of Collier’s high-end HyperSizer tool in a user-friendly package aimed at the composite engineer. The easy-to-use HyperSizer Express allows 95% of users to, without a manual or instruction, import


HyperSizer Express software used in optimization and analysis of a bike frame’s FEA stresses and other factors.


fi nite element models (FEM) into Express and produce opti- mum composite laminates that satisfy all analyses to all load cases within 30 minutes. The automatically updated model will arrive at the minimum weight with global plies identifi ed, layer by layer, producing fully manufacturable laminate designs. Express is tightly coupled to FEA programs, such as NASTRAN and Abaqus. Applications can include automo- tive doors, trunks, hoods, body panels, fl oor panels, body in white; aerospace, for seats, doors, winglets, and fl aps; sporting goods including bike frames, snowboards, tennis racquets; medical orthopedic prostheses; industrial robotic end effectors; marine; wind energy turbine blades. CAM software developer DP Technology Corp. (Camaril- lo, CA) has released its new Esprit 2016 CAM software that adds new Profi tTurning high-speed lathe roughing strategies. The Esprit 2016 software features Profi tTurning strategies that implements DP Technology’s new Physics-Based Cut- ting Engine. While traditional cutting strategies only consider the geometry of the part, Profi tTurning creates the toolpath considering multiple cutting factors and machine characteris- tics that impact machining performance. Simulation speed also plays a pivotal role in CAM software and Esprit continues to be at the forefront of accelerating simu- lation without compromising accuracy or stability. The updated CAM software includes increased simulation speed and higher quality surface fi nishing saving the user valuable time.
