Supporting technologies and processes
Bring additive manufacturing technology close to the environment and basque companies as well as this potential benefits and business opportunities (including selection criteria of applications, design and process engineering and support to the incubation and acceleration of the technology adoption in sectors with a high-quality requirements).
Identification of products with added value manufacturable by additive manufacturing. Design and development of new products (including topological optimization and function integration). Development of new products from digital design to additive manufacturing, finishing with the part validation. Design rules creation and the transfer of the rules for the design.
The service includes from the co-development, design and prototype validation to the manufacturing of a new parts and final lightweight design with complex geometries. Design and validation of parts with improved functionalities (molds with conformal cooling, heat exchangers, etc, as an example).
Simulation of thermal stress generated during SLM process and the prediction of these distortions prior to the manufacturing to avoid defects in parts by FEM in a Abaqus network and other commercial network (GE Additive, Materialise, Autodesk…).
Support to the companies in the industrial implementation, including implementation, process certification (aeronautics, automotive, energy), development of proceedings for quality systems and additive manufacturing processes.
It is provided an open platform to develop parameters and process for new materials and the possibility of characterizing them until achieve the optimization, including the consultancy and support from the materials and metallurgy knowledge.
Test ICT systems related to simulation and CAD-CAM-CA_x in a controlled environment prior to their commercial deployment.
It is offered training service, showcase and exhibition of the parts redesign with Topological Optimization, including the application of design rules for SLM
Access to people to different levels, from technicians, engineers to other profiles for their introduction and training in technology to achieve an adequate technological criterion.
