ESI Releases Virtual Seat Solution 2017 to Address the Challenges of Automotive and Aircraft Seat Manufacturing

Latest software capabilities help engineers deliver safer, lighter and more comfortable seats at first try-out

ESI Group , leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries, announces the release of ESI Virtual Seat Solution 2017 , the only software on the market specifically designed for the virtual prototyping of seats in the aeronautics and ground transportation industries. The software solution empowers OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and seat suppliers to design, test, improve and pre-certify their seat prototypes, fully and virtually, without the need for costly physical prototypes. Not only do these industrial clients save cost and time, they are also able to deliver highly innovative lightweight seats, while ensuring all aspects of their performance.

Seat quality requirements are higher than ever before, and engineers must meet those demands by offering seats that are safe, lightweight, and comfortable. In the latest release of Virtual Seat Solution 2017, ESI has extended the software’s capabilities to support important safety standards and help engineers take into consideration a rich diversity of seat occupants.

Certification and comfort of aircraft seat

“When you design and engineer a disruptive seating solution in the aeronautic industry, ensuring the 16G EASA and FAA certification is one of the main challenges. Using ESI Virtual Seat Solution is a powerful way for us to evaluate the performance of our seat and anticipate the issues at a lower cost and much faster than any usual time-consuming test with expensive prototypes. We can virtually test different designs and material alternatives, and iterate as many times as necessary to succeed in the virtual pre-certification of the seat. By avoiding the time loss and the associated cost to correct an unsuccessful real test, we have managed to drastically reduce the time to market of our TiSeat,” commented Benjamin Saada, CEO of Expliseat.
