“Our activity is about blowing lines and machines and Pet plastic bottles. The implementation of TYPE3-CAA helps us to integrate the engraving at the design stage, making this application part of the product cycle. Optimization of CATIA® functionalities thanks to Graphic & Wrap package integration allowing wrapping on surfaces, text on curves… directly into CATIA® ! Besides, we minimize risk errors by using the Gateway Package for perfect communication between CATIA® and TYPE3.”
