In simulations, we have expertise between topology optimization, construction simulation, powder bed simulation, and process simulation.
Topology simulation results in savings on materials, weight reduction, and efficiency, and meets all the necessary requirements that have been set for the component.
In the construction simulation, we determine the optimal orientation of the component in the printing process, and also the necessary support structures and support structure strengths. In this way, we reduce possible deformations, post-processing expenses, and production costs by optimizing the construction time and material usage.
We use powder bed simulation to determine how to spread the fresh powder onto the powder bed as homogeneously as possible. In addition to powder characteristics, process parameters such as the shape and speed of the blade or roller have an influence on undesired separation of the powder particles according to size.
The process simulation simulates the actual manufacturing process. Laser speed, laser energy, and laser track are coordinated in virtual test runs so that a component is formed with the best quality and density, in accordance with your requirements. This drastically reduces the number of test prints that are necessary before the optimal component is manufactured. Development and material costs are significantly reduced.
