Renishaw and Simufact have partnered to develop enhanced simulation capabilities for users of Direct Metal Laser Sintering.
The companies are working to enable the successful prediction of stress and distortion during the print process by enhancing the simulation of frequently used materials. A QuantAM API for build preparation and export has also been added to the recently-launched Simufact Additive 2020 platform to enable error-free data transmission to Renishaw’s printing systems.
This collaboration is seeking to provide users of Renishaw’s metal additive manufacturing technology with parts of greater quality by sufficiently assessing design files before moving to the build. With metal additive manufacturing vendors like Renishaw aiming to make their 3D printing platforms quicker and more efficient, multiple and stronger lasers have been incorporated into their machines. Renishaw’s RenAM 500Q, for example, has four 500W lasers. With faster energy input can come residual stress, distortion and problems with […]
