Price is nine milion yen included all functions.
They aim to make 16 contracts for the first year targeted aotumobile industry.
The KATAYA Dot Com Inc. made contract with OmniCAD in Italy as a distributor in Japan. OmniCAD is specialized in modeling surface of draw die during design phase and is introduced to Fiat, VW as well as BMW. Some plastic mold manufacturers and even some medical orthopedics had introduced OmniCAD as one of their wquipment because of high advantage of surface modeling system.
It has been a problem that when the simulation result by CAE is incorporated into surface of the die, it marks the quality worse by making uneven surface. However, OmniCAD has been accuracy throughout this process. The module can hold up wrinkle by aotomatically. The KATAYA Dot Com Inc. deals with customer in overseas in order to receive as order for the press stamping dies.
