Texelis, a French developer of axles and powertrains for heavy-duty vehicles used in public transportation and defense, has employed the 3DExperience virtual platform from Dassault Systèmes. The company is leveraging the solution to improve its testing processes and win more business in different markets.
Said Charles Antoine de Barbuat, president of Texelis, “We needed the agility to quickly respond to bids for different categories of products with more relevant offerings that demonstrate the added value of our services. This is what the 3DExperience platform enables. We will support our digital engineering and manufacturing with improved collaboration and standardization. In just seven and a half months, even during the Covid-19 pandemic, we were able to migrate all our legacy data to the platform and have it fully operational for 140 employees.”
According to Dassault Systèmes, Texelis can now be more agile during development to prevent risk, quickly validate and hone new products, and deploy production. It will also be able to extend its product lifecycle management processes to maintenance, repairs and refurbishment services.
Dassault Systèmes VP of transportation and mobility, Laurence Montanari, commented, “This project demonstrates that agility, innovation and fast deployment are key competitive advantages. By using the 3DExperience platform, Texelis will share, improve and extend knowledge to design, engineer, validate, manufacture and deliver to its customers’ satisfaction.”
