Additive Works, Bremen, Germany, a provider of solutions for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (LB-PBF) Additive Manufacturing technology, will present a new module for its Amphyon software at formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, November 13-16.

Amphyon is a simulation-driven process software for AM and the new module, Amphyon2018, is said to ensure the automatic generation of optimised support structures. It will also allow for adaptive meshing that enables the user to perform calculations for larger and more complex components, and offers the ability to export layers for an improved workflow which integrates the support module and an improves connectivity with machines.

At the Additive Works booth during formnext, visitors will have the opportunity to view live demos and get a first-hand impression of the new software version. The company’s experts will also offer insights into its new features and capabilities, demonstrate how to prepare models and provide answers to all AM-related questions.

Dr rer Nat Nils Keller, Co-Founder & CEO at Additive Works, stated, “We are excited to present the new version of our first-time-right Additive Manufacturing solution at formnext in Frankfurt. The new version will be a significant improvement for Amphyon users, who can now perform calculations of even larger and more complex models and benefit from an overall improved, simulation-driven workflow.”

“The new features, such as automatic generation of support structures, adaptive meshing, and the possibility to export layers will lead to significant time saving,” he continued. “With the new version, we are taking Amphyon to the next level, helping our customers to become even more efficient. Formnext will be the perfect platform to present our new module and I’m looking forward to demonstrating the latest features of our solution and its potential benefits to our visitors.”
