The Virtual Weld

Most manufacturing companies rely on empirical data and experience when designing and welding components. Goal-oriented improvements and the adjustment of manufacturing processes often require a considerable amount of time and effort. Typically, for example, welding distortions can only be found and corrected in downstream fabrication steps. However, the process accompanying the use of welding simulations ...

Multi-scale material modeling for additive manufacturing

While additive manufacturing of reinforced polymers is appealing and increasingly considered for production of actual parts, major obstacles must be overcome by engineers. Dimensional accuracy of the part must obey to strict tolerances that may not be met due to thermally induced part distortion or poor surface roughness. On the material side, an anisotropic material behavior is brought in by the specific 3D printed layered architecture and oriented reinforcements. This process-induced material behavior make the part mechanical response challenging to predict.

Therefore, Digimat, the material modeling platform, can offer you a solution to overcome your challenges.
