A growing number of users trusts in Simufact simulation technology.
- Cracks located at the interface between the par/base plate and the part/support
- Undesired distortion
- Failure analysis by simulation
- Distortion compensation by adding inserts and new supports structure
Re-construction of a conventional hinge hood aiming at substantial weight reduction, fewer component arts, less assembly steps, and integrated pedestrian protection functionality - to be manufactured using metal additive manufacturing methods.
In order to reduce the number of try-out steps, Simufact simulated the distortions in the AM parts. By distortion compensation countermeasures the parts were produced in shorter time meeting quality goals.
The Mechanical and Materials group of CERN chose Simufact Additive to simulate the Selective Laser Melting process for predicting the deformation of parts for High Energy Physics application, ie. superconducting magnets and Radio-Frequency (RF) components. Predicting deformation is key to achieve first-time accurate parts, especially for parts made with expensive materials such as niobium developed for Superconducting RF application.

In our daily work, dimensional accuracy, precision and a mature design play an extremely important role. In order to meet these requirements, we employ the simulation software Simufact Additive in our design. From the use of the simulation solution, we improve the accuracy in the production processes. With its ease of use, Simufact Additive is perfectly integrated into our engineering.

Additive manufacturing, if done wrong, can become a very cost intensive process.
One the one hand a defective print wastes expensive materials in powder form on the other hand we have a welding process accompanied by distortions. We are increasingly confronted with designs on the edge of feasibility. Often large framework dimensions are required where classic parameters lead to strong distortions.
With Simufact Additive, we now have a software solution, which makes the development of a zero-fault production to an attainable goal. We can run the simulation in advance in order to detect the deformation of the component. To us, Simufact Additive provides a great value.
Running eleven printing facilities at our company we assume that our invest should be amortized soon.
