Engineering software company nTopology Inc., headquartered in New York City, USA, has opened its first European office in Regensburg, Germany, in response to the company’s growing partner and customer base in Europe. The team at the newly-established nTopology GmbH are now set to embark on a three-month tour in which they will visit select European partners at their production sites to demonstrate the company’s solutions, culminating with the company’s presence at Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany, this November.
The company’s computational-modelling software, nTop Platform, is said to offer engineers a unified environment for creating highly complex designs suited for Additive Manufacturing and other advanced production technologies. Collaborative workflows in nTop Platform allow the simultaneous consideration of design, simulation and manufacturing for the rapid optimisation of products.
“Large, global, enterprise-level manufacturing companies are adopting nTopology’s software to address engineering challenges and initiatives such as lightweighting, generative design and Industry 4.0,” commented Bradley Rothenberg, founder and CEO of nTopology. “Our expansion into Germany is the logical next step, since that is the base for much of European manufacturing.”
Fabian Grupp, nTopology GmbH representative, has worked in AM for his whole career and explained that he has seen the industry move towards the serial production of high-performance parts. “Our presence here [in Germany] will serve as an important resource to help customers realise increased product functionality, reduced development cycles and optimised designs for AM,” he stated.
