The previously announced collaboration between Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, headquartered in Cobham, Surrey, UK, and CADS Additive, Perg, Austria, has resulted in a new, more efficient build core processor, Titan.Core, for the Simufact Additive software.
Titan.Core is said to be particularly high-performance, with the calculations of layer data for the Powder Bed Fusion process up to 30 X faster than with comparable build processors, allowing users to make much more economical use of hardware and personnel capacities.
Slicing and hatching for Additive Manufacturing generates large amounts of data, taking up computing time and affecting the overall speed of the workstation. With Titan.Core, Simufact Additive is now said to make things easier for users thanks to the universally connectable build processor, allowing direct access to production machines.
“The powerful slicing and hatching of the Titan.Core build processor allows Simufact Additive users to transfer simulation results directly to their 3D printer as manufacturing data,” stated Dr-Ing Patrick Mehmert, Product Manager, Simufact Engineering.
Simufact Additive is integrated in CADS Additive’s AM-Studio as a standard simulation component.
