CCS and Componeering partner for ESAComp software promotion in the ASEAN region


Singapore/Helsinki, 3rd November 2014: Composite Cluster Singapore Pte Ltd (CCS) and Componeering Inc. have signed an agreement to substantiate their collaboration regarding Componeering’s ESAComp software in the ASEAN region.

As a gateway to Asia, Singapore is the ideal location for Componeering to advance its international activities in the ASEAN region. As a center of excellence in the region, CCS utilizes its network and expertise to provide customers with composite design solutions. On signing this agreement, CCS becomes the regional distributor and technical support center for Componeering’s ESAComp software.
“The ASEAN region already has significant production capacity for high-performance composites, so the natural next step is to develop their composite design competencies too. Combined with training, support and know-how from CCS, ESAComp provides an excellent base for learning structural design of advanced composites,” says Mr. Markku Palanterä, General Manager of Componeering.
“ESAComp has established itself as the best composite design software around and it also integrates easily with common CAE software. We are therefore very happy to establish this partnership with Componeering that allows us to substantially upgrade our customers' advanced composites capabilities. Composite design capabilities are a key element to go from contract manufacturing to original design manufacturing and ESAComp directly addresses that” concludes Dr. Florian Doetzer, Managing Director of CCS.

About Componeering Inc. and ESAComp: Componeering, based in in Helsinki, Finland, is the developer of ESAComp (, a software suite for analysis and design of composite structures. ESAComp focuses on conceptual and preliminary design, but its capabilities range also to FE post-processing and analyses of details. The intuitive graphical user interface combines the extensive composite materials database and the analysis features seamlessly, and interfaces with commercial finite element software guarantee smooth workflow in the design process. From its origins in European aerospace, ESAComp has been developed as a general tool for everyone working with composites, both in industry and in research.

Article in Aerospace Singapore Magazine

Singapore, June 2014: The article "Trends in high-performance composites", written by Prof. Klaus Drechsler and Dr. Florian Doetzer from CCS has been published in Aerospace Singapore Magazine's May-August Issue Volume 7 / No.2 / 2014.

The article points out implications and associated trends of recent years' sharp increase in innovation and research and development (R&D), which has been driven mainly by two major industrial developments: the decision to use composites for primary structures of large airliners and the introduction in mass market automobiles.
