Industrial Technical Center for Plastics and Composites


Digital technologies

IPC has the technical, human and computational resources to support you in your projects and optimise your total cost of ownership.

A digital platform to boost your competitiveness

Our economy is increasingly driving us to innovate to improve efficiency. Thanks to its digital platform, IPC can help you develop digital tools to design and produce plastic or composite products.

IPC’s simulation possibilities

Simulation of the process

Simulation of the process

This type of simulation is used on injection, thermoforming and composite processes (RTM, C-RTM, SMC, stamping-overmoulding). It can be used to design tools.
It can help you increase productivity and reduce development lead times.

Mechanical simulation

Mechanical simulation

Mechanical simulation is devoted to production processes for thermoplastic and composite products. It helps in product design through the optimisation of forms and topology.

Process simulation and product simulation

Process simulation and product simulation

IPC makes the connection between the manufacturing process for composites and filled TP parts and the product’s use.
The product’s mechanical properties are estimated following a process simulation phase. This gives us simulations that enable us to predict the behaviour of filled materials.
