Applications made with TYPE3-CAA

“Our activity is about blowing line machines for Pet plastic bottles. The implementation of TYPE3-CAA helped us to integrate the engraving at the design stage, making this of this software a complete part of the product cycle management within our organization. Optimization of CATIA® functionalities thanks to the Graphic & Wrap package integration has allowed us wrapping text and logos on surfaces, place text on curves and have pure controls of special characters generations… directly into CATIA® ! Besides this we minimize risk errors by using the Gateway Package for a perfect communication between CATIA® and the other products offered by Gravotech.”
