Design for 3D Printing

Maximizing efficiency of dynamic machines


"What does a robot, a NC controlled machining center and a rotary hammer drill have in common? All are complex machines with high demands on productivity. Maximizing the output of such machines while minimizing factors as mass, energy consumption, vibrations is a complex and multidisciplinary task. Simulation Driven Design methods provide a powerful way to master this challenge.
Learn how to maximize the efficiency of dynamic machines by
  • reducing weight (especially moving masses) while maximizing stiffness
  • understanding and optimization of vibrations
  • predicting realistic loads through kinematic simulations
  • creating efficient simulation models
  • automating simulation processes
