Additive manufacturing (AM) technology or 3D printing has already gained popularity for designing complex geometric structures and easy manufacturability. These technologies are now becoming more cost-effective day by day in a variety of industries. AM can help with completely new innovative design changes for an existing model and improve production efficiency with optimized design and efficient customization.
One of the major challenges faced by the 3D printing industry include modeling accurate thermal and residual stress or even distorted segments in the structure during manufacturing.
With an in-depth theoretical knowledge and multiple years of experience in AM simulation, we can provide simulation support for:
- Structural analysis:Thermal, static, dynamic and coupled analysis, residual stress, crack propagation and fracture modeling, in-build crack propagation, recoated interference
- Material modeling: Calibration, nonlinearity, user-specific material, evolution, performance, multi-scale lattice downscaling/ upscaling (material properties via fe homogenization, grain morphology)
- Manufacturing Industries: Concept driven designs (thermal and residual stress), heat treatment, machining
- Bio-medical implant/ devices: Patient specific design, customer-specific materials, sophisticated and complex geometry (spinal cage, bone)
