FASTSUITE - Focus on efficiency in Digital Factory

With two product lines, FASTSUITE for V5, which is seamlessly integrated with CATIA/DELMIA V5, and FASTSUITE Edition 2, a standalone platform, the areas of OLP (offline programming), manufacturing simulation and virtual commissioning are the core of our business activities. Our applications and solutions are not only focused on real customer needs, but they are also designed to improve efficiency and quality of our customers' manufacturing processes. No matter if the process is just about offline programming of a single robot at a small job-shop company or about the validation of a complete production line at an Automotive or Aerospace OEM. We strive to ensure a constant quality of our services and to provide the best possible support to our worldwide customers. Therefore we have established three digital manufacturing hubs around the world. All our teams have a proven expertise on manufacturing process integration and profound IT implementation skills.
