VISTAGY, Inc., announced that Lear Corporation, a supplier of automotive seating systems and electrical power management systems, has purchased VISTAGY’s Seat Design Environment (SDE) for use in its engineering operations. As one the world’s largest fully integrated seating suppliers, Lear works with leading automakers globally to supply finished seats for the highest volume cars and trucks as well as specialty applications for premium cars and performance vehicles.
Seat trim design and manufacturing engineering processes have historically been primarily based on 2D data, but the SDE enables you to author and share an accurate 3D CAD master model of the trim cover from the earliest stages of design through to manufacturing. As a result, seat manufacturers will be able to author a seat trim master model definition with the SDE that will be used to automatically create and update engineering and manufacturing data to achieve a faster, more precise process for delivering seat covers to market. This is a critical concern in the competitive global automotive industry.
