Altair to highlight simulation-driven design for Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2018

October 29, 2018

Altair, headquartered in Troy, Michigan, USA, will highlight simulation-driven design processes for modern manufacturing methods and its Altair Inspire platform at Formnext 2018, Frankfurt, Germany, November 13-16, 2018. Along with its co-exhibitors APWorks, M&H, and RSC, Altair will demonstrate how the use of simulation-driven design and Altair Inspire with modern manufacturing methods can be leveraged to develop new, innovative and efficient products.

“Altair’s Formnext presence, with our technical collaborators, will address how to successfully create economic, innovative, and efficient products,” stated Mirko Bromberger, Director Marketing Strategy at Altair. “With the Altair Inspire platform our customers can identify system requirements, create structural innovation, and assure manufacturability within a simulation-driven design process.”

“We are very pleased to see that today almost all large AM technology providers are working with Altair Inspire or Altair HyperWorks, which have become the industry standards when it comes to topology optimisation and generative design,” he continued. “It is Altair’s goal to make performance and cost-saving potentials accessible in the early stages of the decision-making process, which will be demonstrated with several exhibition pieces at our booth and throughout the entire show.”

The company will exhibit several pieces engineered using Altair solutions, and has also contributed to a demonstration of the comprehensive Additive Manufacturing process chain that is to be presented at the booth of Germany’s Industry Federation of Mechanical Engineers (VDMA).

In addition, APWorks’s Industrialization Alley will feature examples of series produced AM components, as well as product applications and AMXpert, an online ordering platform for metal additively manufactured parts. The Altair booth will also feature a dedicated demo theatre illustrating the creative application of simulation technologies for various manufacturing methods, including product demonstrations of Altair Inspire and the recently acquired SIMSOLID.
