FASTJOINT Management of joining elements in CATIA

With FASTJOINT, CENIT offers an exceptional option for the associative management of elaborate joints on complex products. All relevant data of the various joining elements (riveting, spot welding, clinching, ...) are reflected in a 3D model.

The product model-integrated management of CATIA V5 creates a highly efficient and simple working environment for design and change management.

FASTJOINT – associative administration of fasteners

FASTJOINT is seamlessly integrated in the powerful CATIA V5 infrastructure, and the associative data management in the assembly group model enables comprehensive and automated reuse in the downstream areas: assembly planning and manufacturing.

Direct integration enables a streamlined process and thanks to the offline programming system FASTTIP that is also integrated in CATIA/DELMIA, this results in an extremely comfortable connection for programming and simulation of automated assembly systems.
