Tittle:
Multi-physic and multi-scale modelling of metal additive manufacturing (3D printing) processes
Summary:
A German company offers modular highly flexible software and services for multi-physic and multi-scale modelling of metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes, also referred to as 3D printing. It meets design challenges and optimizes processes and helps realise the potential of AM in many applications. Partners from industry and research are sought for technical cooperation and commercial cooperation with technical assistance.
Description:
Adopters of additive manufacturing (AM) - commonly referred to as 3D printing - are struggling to achieve the production volumes and quality required to compete effectively with conventional manufacturing processes. Many challenges must be addressed before the great potential of additive manufacturing can be fully exploited by manufacturers. The range of benefits is huge as companies benefit from the flexibility that additive manufacturing brings to their manufacturing line. A factory can switch or relocate its production overnight as 3D printers allow for the manufacture of infinite types of parts and require minimal tooling. The benefit is not only for the initial production but also for repair of parts.

A German company, specialised in modelling software and services has recognized the huge potential of additive manufacturing. Within the framework of several large collaborative projects, the company has developed a suite of tools addressing design challenges and process optimization. Thus they can now offer modular highly flexible software and services for multi-physic and multi-scale modelling of metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes.

The software they offer improves the design processes and process control technologies behind AM. To ensure a robust process and parts that meet the manufacturer´s specifications, virtual manufacturing simulation is needed. While AM is in many aspects more complex, numerical simulation can deliver the right answers, just as it does for many other manufacturing processes.

The integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) tools and methodologies for metal additive manufacturing, include
- Feedstock modelling for powder spreading or wire feed
- Micro model for melting and solidification
- Macro model to predict residual stresses

The objective is to enable designers and manufacturers to benefit fully from the potential that AM offers in many applications.

Fields of application include: metal additive manufacturing / 3D printing, automotive, aerospace, energy, medical and others.

Partners from industry and research are sought for commercial agreement with technical assistance, e.g., engineering support and technical consultancy as well as for technical co-operation in the area of joint further development, testing of new applications or adaptation to specific needs.
Advantages and Innovations:
The company´s ICME tools and methodologies offer unique and innovative opportunities to model the complete AM process chain within one software environment.

Advantages of computational modelling are:
