Hexagon ICME Solution Doubles The Pace Of Engineering Innovation

Microstructure Metal Modelling

IMDEA Materials and Hexagon have announced a partnership for the development of the integrated additive manufacturing solution E - Xstream 10x ICME. The partnership has developed an E.Xstream 10X ICme solution that will help manufacturers design and design additives - manufacturing processes that improve the performance of 3D-printed metal parts such as aerospace, automotive and industrial parts.

E-Xstream says that 10X ICME goes one step further across all simulation disciplines to help manufacturers make the perfect part, be it time, cost, or data availability. Designed to meet industrial needs, with an emphasis on high-performance additive manufacturing technology (3D), ICme leverages the growing ecosystem of Hexagon's industrial partners and its expertise in additive engineering. It is integrated into the E.Xstream Manufacturing Platform to make the most of the data and enable practical implementation in many production environments.

Research & Development at Hexagon

Our research is highly interdisciplinary and covers a wide range of disciplines such as chemical engineering, materials science, engineering, and physics. Our research activities are based on the expertise and know-how of the world's leading scientists, engineers, and scientists in the field of additive technology. In order to develop high-performance 3D additive manufacturing solutions for industrial applications, it is essential to have an understanding of how molecular changes affect structural properties, "commented Dr. Michael D. Hickey, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Hexagon.

The paper, entitled "A new approach to the development of high-performance 3D additive manufacturing solutions for industrial applications," was published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society in the journal ACS Nano and will be published online before printing.

The presentation describes a method based on the use of high-performance 3D additive manufacturing solutions for industrial applications by developing numerical methods that enable predictive models of cell biology and bioengineering.

For rheologists, microfluidic techniques offer new possibilities for measuring liquid properties and enable the use of powerful, cost-effective, and powerful liquid sensors without the complications of liquid inertia. The development and growth of microfluidics have stimulated and enabled new applications in the fields of bioengineering, biotechnology, biomedicine, bioinformatics, and biomedical research.

The ability to produce complex fluid geometries quickly and accurately also makes it possible to exploit the ability of microfluidics to optimize shapes and reach a wide range of new applications in materials science and engineering. This method is based on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME), which bridges previously closed fields by optimizing parts so that different areas are taken into account.

The aim is to have a simulation tool that combines the properties of the microstructure with the properties of a particular material. The end result is a new way of simulating microstructures in material and recognizing their effects.

Another area of interest is bionic design, which allows computer-generated topology - optimized lean geometry of parts - to reduce mass and improve structural stiffness. Bionic designs enable the creation of computer-generated "topologies" with lean geometries and parts with optimized topologies for lower mass, lower cost, and improved structural stiffness 122.123. Ultimately, additive manufacturing methods offer the potential for the synthesis of graded materials. If costs and production speed need to be improved, they can be used to create functionally graded structures.

Ventura-based XponentialWorks Doubles Size of Innovation Labs

This presentation will highlight the current state of the art in bionic design and the potential for future applications, as well as some of the key challenges and opportunities for further development in this area. Initial job realizations have shown high rigidity, low mass, and high packaging efficiency, but optimization of the design has shown that the rigidity used exceeds the existing technology. Class 1 configurations have high packaging efficiency and Class 2 tensile strength has higher rigidity; the Class 3 configuration has lower rigidity and lowers packaging efficiency.

Venture Advisory, a consulting and product development firm specializing in the development of high-tech, high-performance, and low-cost technology, has announced a partnership with Ventura - based Innovation Labs to build a new manufacturing facility that will expand its research and development capabilities. These advances include additive 3-D manufacturing and the integration of advanced materials into the design and manufacturing process.

XponentialWorks expects the expansion to create and improve innovation and manufacturing infrastructure for its portfolio companies, including NXT Factory, Nexa3D, and Apollo Robotics, as they expand their research and development capabilities. The expansion reflects the company's commitment to commercializing its products and services and is part of its mission to ensure the long-term viability of innovation in the Ventura area and the nation.

For this reason, we have recently seen a significant increase in our commercial activities related to simulation tools for metals and AM. We recently announced a partnership with the IMDEA Materials Institute in Spain, whose tools and improved simulations, including the development of metal microstructures, will support the development of advanced manufacturing technologies including AM. This partnership aims to extend the footprint of the e-Xstream ICME platform to metallic materials and related manufacturing processes.
