Advanced Thermal Design System
Painting of complex structures, like car bodies, requires many steps in manufacturing for pre-treatment, cleaning, phosphating, electrocoating, pneumatic of electrostatic coat application, thermal drying or ultraviolet curing, cavity protection and others.
To ensure high quality of paint and efficient processes, reduce paint errors and consumption of resources, improve corrosion protection, avoid unnecessary design iterations by means of frontloading, computer based simulation can be used to assess and optimize individual steps in manufacturing or in the design of the product to be coated. VirtualPaintShop®, developed by CADFEM since 1997 supplies such analysis capabilities.
The primary goals for the development of VirtualPaintShop® are ease-of-use, speed of analysis, integration in existing development processes and supply of the full set of tools for painting relevant simulation.
VPS EDC - Simulation of electro-deposition coating
VPS DRY - Simulation of thermal heat up and cool down of structures
VPS DIP - Analyzes the dipping and emerging of the body
VPS CATIA Toolkit - Preparation of Simulation Models for VPS/EDC
Methodology and a kit of routines to speed up modeling of finite-element-meshes for cavities using CATIA v4 (i.e for VPS/EDC or VPS/DIP, but also for finite-element-meshes to be used in computational fluid dynamics or acoustics). CATIA-Toolkit has been specifically developed for the requirements of VPS/EDC and VPS/DIP. Using CATIA-Toolkit consequently will significantly speed up time and effort needed for Modeling and Meshing.
graphic environment of VPS/DIP is able to handle very large
and complex meshes very effective and comfortable
