Weight and cost reductions during 3D metal printing

FEM calculations and topology optimisation create more efficient components

Additive manufacturing can be used to manufacture complex and efficient lightweight structures. This is particularly beneficial in sectors such as the aerospace and motorsport industries, where every gram counts. Last year, toolcraft decided to start using the Siemens NX software package, in order to improve its process chain, from design and construction to modifications using machining techniques. As a result, the company is now able to produce even more efficient components. Learn here more about the weight and cost reductions enabled by the modules for FEM calculations and topology optimisation built into the software.
