Dassault Systèmes and National Composites Centre Strategically Collaborates

Dassault Systèmes has announced the signature of a partnership to create a collaborative environment where the NCC and its partners will work on tomorrow’s advanced composites products, thanks to Dassault Systèmes’ Version 6 3D Experience platform. As the first official Associate Member, Dassault Systèmes joins other companies and enterprising academics, to develop new methods and technologies to become the UK’s hub for design and rapid manufacture of high quality composite products. 

Inaugurated in November 2011 and located in the Bristol & Bath Science Park (UK), the NCC provides its members with a collaborative modeling and simulation environment based on Dassault Systèmes’ V6 solutions to develop innovative composites products in a neutral space, with unique design-to-manufacturing user experiences. Companies working together with academics will be able to explore, test, and validate design, as well as engineering and manufacturing options. Processes, methods, and solutions will be harmonized, spanning design, simulation and manufacturing within a single environment, while providing a compelling user experience.

With a £25m investment supported by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (£12m), South West Regional Development Agency (£4m) and the European Regional Development Fund (£9m), the NCC connects the dots between universities and industry by co-coordinating a strengthened network of regional composite manufacturing excellence centres. The NCC’s steering board comprises representatives from various industries, including Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Vestas, AgustaWestland, GKN, Umeco and the University of Bristol. 

Dassault Systèmes has a longstanding leadership in providing composites solutions for sustainable innovation, addressing key challenges in industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine and energy. At the NCC, elite manufacturers will benefit from this composites knowledge for better achievements.
