Digital continuity for the Additive Manufacturing of aerospace engine parts

July 2, 2015

Dassault Systèmes, a developer of 3D design software, has announced a partnership with aerospace systems manufacturer Safran Group to develop expertise in the virtual validation of the Additive Manufacturing process.

The partnership combines Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform with Safran’s expertise in innovative technologies for the development of a world-class end-to-end digital solution for Additive Manufacturing. This new end-to-end process will address upstream material design and downstream manufacturing processes and testing to provide digital continuity for all engineering parameters necessary for the Additive Manufacturing of an engine part: material science, functional specification, generative design, 3D printing optimisation, multi-robotic production and certification.

“Dassault Systèmes’ long history of collaboration with Safran is now taking on a new dimension to embrace and integrate new materials and methods of engineering, production and maintenance that will significantly impact the aviation industry,” stated Dominique Florack, Senior Executive Vice President, Research & Development, Dassault Systèmes.

“Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s strategy covers all aspects of the Additive Manufacturing process, from material design to conceptual design, generative design to manufacturing, and certification to repair. Together with Safran, we can nurture virtual world processes for a complete approach in this field that will help revolutionize tomorrow’s manufacturing,” added Florack.

“Research and technology is a fundamental part of Safran, allowing us to drive continuous improvements for safer and more environmentally friendly air travel,” stated Pierre Fabre, Senior Executive Vice President R&T, Innovation, Safran. “Safran is currently leading the field in using 3D printing technology to manufacture its engines. By pooling expertise with Dassault Systèmes and its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, we can accelerate the innovation process and better meet customers’ needs.”
