The PLM MarketPlace is growing and our latest partner to be referenced in our catalog
is Actas. In order to make sure that everybody perceives the benefits of their experience and solutions, we asked them for a short introduction.
Actas GmbH was founded in 2004 as a Management Buy Out of the Engineering Technical Services department of Atos Origin, Stuttgart. Actas provides training and services such as installation and customization around CATIA-V4 and CATIA-V5. Actas GmbH is a small (6 people) but highly professional company. Actas has over 20 years experience working with CATIA and developing CATIA.
Actas is an Adopter Partner of Dassault Systèmes since 2006. Actas has developed 2 products (MPA and TDA) fully integrated in CATIA-V5 for the optimization of the Deep Drawing process. The product development was done in close cooperation with car manufacturers.
TDA is the successor of CATAD2 and offers similar functionality for tool engineering for sheet metal parts using the deep drawing technology. TDA enables to deploy product contours on other surface geometry, like tool addendum geometry, with respect to material bending behaviour. The functionality includes mapping of complex contours, trim line development and blank profile determination.
MPA is the successor of CATAD4 and offers similar functionality for tool engineering for sheet metal parts using the deep drawing technology. MPA includes the 2 functions Draw Angle Analysis and Cut Angle Analysis. The both products determine and analyse tool directions and angles for draw operations and cut operations of complex sheet metal products. The functionality includes computing aperture and undercut, analysing punch directions and analysing the acute and obtuse cutting angles.
This blogpost aims at giving you a first overview of the capabilities of Actas' softwares. Do you see a value in them for your industry/job? Are you facing technological challenges you think you can win thanks to MPA or TDA? Feel free to comment!
