In addition to the off-the-shelf FASTSUITE product line, CENIT also offers a software development kit (SDK), which enables companies to use the entire FASTSUITE architecture and API set to build and integrate proprietary applications and software solutions.
CENIT not only offers cutting edge software technology for machine and robot simulation but also provides expert level consulting and support services, presales and most importantly post-sales. CENIT accomplishes expert level support through numerous long-term service and support engagements at manufacturing facilities world-wide and has been doing so for more than two decades.
cenitSPIN, PLM solution for mid-sized companies
The processes implemented in SMBs are often simple and practical. However, conventional PLM software is tailored to the processes and requirements of large companies and is therefore complicated to use. This means that individual customizations are required but these are complex, costly and involve increased maintenance costs. With cenitSPIN, SMBs in particular can benefit from a standard PLM solution that can be configured at low introductory and operating costs.
cenitSPIN is based on the sustainable and scalable 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes. Our customers benefit from the tried and tested technology and innovation of the global PLM market leader, for example in multi-CAD data management for CATIA V5, V6, SolidWorks and third-party CAD systems.
The core of cenitSPIN is the intuitive and user-friendly PLM desktop that allows users to efficiently manage the development of a product throughout the entire product lifecycle. At a glance users can identify all the tasks and information in the development process that are relevant to them.
cenitSPIN offers a preconfigured best practice solution for the main PLM topics and can therefore be up and running quickly while already covering a large number of business processes. Changes can also be applied quickly and without programming in the course of implementation using the Configuration Engine.
The agile implementation concept actively involves the users in the system definition at an early stage thus allowing a direct feedback loop. At the end of the implementation stage the customer has an individual system that is tailored precisely to the specific business processes of the company. The very early involvement of the users also ensures a high level of acceptance and an effective solution.
cenitFLEX+ : Power up your PLM
The use of products from various providers, and to an even greater degree the large number of different licenses are making systems operation ever more complex.
The software solution cenitFLEX+ is an administration and user interface for standardized management and operation of different CAx-applications and their environments.
Rapid Availability of PLM Software in Heterogeneous CAD Landscapes
We get your PLM software running and ensure that the right application is there when you need it.
cenitFLEX+ is an application launcher for rapid, secure startup of any desired CAD-application in the correct application environment.
It acts as a high-performance launch and systems administration framework for efficient and secure management of CAx-infrastructures, even in highly complex environments.
Prior to launching the application, the system conducts a license confirmation for the selected configuration, which saves time by avoiding reboots due to unavailable licenses.
In cenitFLEX+, pre-configured, standardized environments ensure maximum conformity with the environment requirements of your customers.
Pooling all CAx-applications in just one framework ensures high configuration security. A large number of pre-configured OEM-environments can be integrated into the coherently organized framework.
FASTSUITE for V5
It stands for efficient and progressive process automation in the fields of robot simulation and offline programming, NC manufacturing as well as the automated creation of manufacturing-relevant product information.
The first generation supplements the established standard solution by Dassault Systèmes.
FASTSUITE is fully and seamlessly integrated in CATIA and DELMIA, creating maximum efficient support for your manufacturing processes. Thanks to the long-standing CAA development partnership with Dassault Systèmes, we ensure comprehensive and secure processes with the FASTSUITE software platform.
FASTSUITE products are the result of more than 25 years of experience in the field of manufacturing. We offer comprehensive solutions. Our proven offline programming systems can be well automated and are therefore a tried-and-tested solution for efficient processes.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a BUSINESS EXPERIENCE platform. It provides software solutions for every organization in your company - from marketing to sales to engineering – that help you, in your value creation process, to create differentiating consumer experiences.
With a single, easy-to-use interface, it powers INDUSTRY SOLUTION EXPERIENCES, based on 3D design, analysis, simulation and intelligence software in a collaborative interactive environment. It is available on premise and in public or private cloud.
Best in class product development software applications, delivered on the 3D Experience Platform enabling 3D Design, Engineering, 3D CAD, Modeling, Simulation, Data Management and Process Management (i.e CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, EXALEAD,...).

CENIT introduces design and manufacturing innovations at Airbus - More than 8,000 single parts from 3 master parts
In September of 2015, after a mere 10 months, Airbus successfully completed the concept phase for its freight aircraft Beluga XL. The contribution to the outstanding productivity of the Airbus engineering was a rule-based and process-oriented design methodology which CENIT formulated and introduced for the company. In this approach, assemblies and individual components are standardized and harmonized, making it possible to define parts families and their respective master parts. On this basis, the CAD program can then automatically generate all the variants from the master parts. The process is the result of a long-term innovation partnership between the two companies.
In the case of the Beluga XL, Airbus used the procedure to develop structural components for the upper shell of the cargo compartment, i.e. stringer and frames and the associated connectors (clips).
CENIT developed “master parts” for these component families and defined the associated design and manufacturing rules iwithin the CAD program CATIA V5. In the case of the clips, for example, these would include the dimensions and angles of the components and the dependencies of these on neighboring components and drilling sequences.
For the cargo hold, the software automatically generated approx. 7,500 clips and about 600 frames and stringers. For the clips, of which there are a particularly large number of variants, CENIT implemented an (again software-based) comparison with existing clips to optimize the re-use rate of the parts. In this way, the number of different clips could be reduced to about 1,400.
Within just 24 hours, the engineers had the complete, parametric digital 3D model (the digital mockup) of the cargo hold on their screens. The work effort from project launch to completed 3D design has been reduced by more than half. Automation also ensures 100% correct data quality and uniform display standards for each component. This information is later used e.g. in the largely automated production of the required forming tools, which also enables a more rapid rollout to production.
Research, Implementation and Tangible Competitive Benefits
The design methodology that Airbus is using for the Beluga XL was developed by CENIT as part of the research project “i-chain”. Following the successful conclusion of “i-chain” in early 2014, the two companies extended their innovation partnership.
First off, Airbus commissioned its partner with testing the concept under real-life conditions in various enterprise divisions. CENIT used the insights gained during these tests to develop the training content for Airbus.

Beluga and Beluga XL by Airbus
Airbus currently operates a fleet of five transport aircraft at its plants in Europe. The A300-600ST is capable of transporting extremely large, mounted assemblies such as aircraft fuselages or wings. The plane earned its nickname “Beluga” from its characteristic nose, reminiscent of the white whale of the same name. To boost its capacities still further, Airbus initiated the project “Beluga XL” in November 2014. From 2019 on, five new transport aircraft of this type will be taken into service. The Beluga XL is based on the A330-200.
