Simufact Engineering, an MSC Software company, has received the Gold German Stevie® Award in the category ‘Best New Product or Service Software – Other’ for its simulation software, Simufact Additive. The German Stevie Awards are a business award for the German corporate world.
Simufact Additive calculates distortions and residual stresses within components, shows the risk of aborted build jobs and enables users to minimise the number of physical attempts required to achieve a successful build. The software also covers post-processing simulations including heat treatment, support removal and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). So far, the technology has been used primarily in the aerospace and automotive sectors.
Wohlmuth, Managing Director and CEO of Simufact Engineering, “In only one year after the market launch, we have already built up a broad customer base with more than sixty companies that come mainly from the aerospace, automotive, medical technology and AM services. This development gives us confidence and certainty that our users get a clear, practical benefit with the simulation solution and that the use of the process simulation pays off.”
