Chinese engine designer chooses Unigraphics CAD/CAM/CAE software

MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. -- Leaders of Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine Group Corp., China's first aero turbine jet engine manufacturer and also the research and production base of the large and medium-sized aero jet engines in China, needed computer-aided engineering software to help design jet engines.

They found their answer in a high-end integrated computer-aided design/manufacturing/engineering software suite from Unigraphics Solutions Inc. (UGS) in St. Louis.

Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine officials are purchasing more than $1 million worth of Unigraphics software, Unigraphics leaders announced Dec. 28. Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine is a major contributor to China's aerospace industry and is the largest manufacturer and technology institute for aero-engine and industrial gas turbines.

"As we enter the 21st century, we are at the threshold of a new era," says Guangcheng Song, secretary of the party committee of Shenyang Liming Aero- Engine Group Corp. "Similar to other state-owned enterprises, Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine Group Corp. is facing both information superhighway and globalization challenges and is making progress in migrating the traditional machine-based technology towards the era of information-based technology.

"We look forward to applying Unigraphics in the production process within Shenyang Liming Aero-Engine Group Corp. and making use of UGS' talented staff and its technological competitiveness," Song says. "One of the main reasons we chose UGS was because we were impressed by the world-class MCAD/PDM software and services the company provided. Additionally, the company prevailed over other software providers because UGS is well recognized in China and associated with dominant knowledge and technical capability."
