AM Products

Applied Optimization (AO) has developed multiple software packages that focus on simulating additive manufacturing processes. Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of building an object layer-by-layer (3D printing). 3D printing with metal can lead to a large number of defects and surface roughness issues that develop during deposition. These issues can greatly affect the integrity of the material.

Performing a trial-and-error process to minimize defects in a part can be expensive and time consuming. AO’s software can optimize deposition parameters to detect and avoid potential defects in a simulated part. Optimizing parts before they are built can save you time and money and increase the overall quality of your products.


AMP2

The Additive Manufacturing Parameter Predictor (AMP2) is a process that Applied Optimization has developed to predict key deposition parameters to reduce the number of defects during the build of a part. This process incorporates a number of AO’s software to perform a multi-scale analysis of the build. More information.


PowderBedSimulator

 

The PowderBedSimulator software is a multi-track thermal simulator for powder bed processes. It uses two methods (layer-by-layer method or line-by-line method) to simulate the build and heat up of a part. More Information.


ParaGen

The Parameter Generation (ParaGen) software is a steady state simulation software that optimizes machine parameters to mitigate build defects during powder bed and blown powder additive manufacturing processes. ParaGen simulates a variety of individual track deposition conditions in the interior of a layer geometry or adjacent to the free edges. More Information.


ISEP

The Initial Selection of Parameters in Additive Manufacturing (ISEP) software is a steady state program that begins the parameter optimization for the blown powder additive manufacturing process to compute melt-pool characteristics for a given set of deposition parameters.


SAMP

The Simulation of Additive Manufacturing Processes (SAMP) software is a transient simulator that performs thermal and distortional stress analysis for the blown powder additive manufacturing process. More Information.


STK

The Simultaneous Transformation Kinetics (STK) software models the evolution of solid state transformations for alloys Ti-6Al-4V and IN718 due the thermal cycling caused by the layer-by-layer addition of material during the blown powder additive manufacturing process. More Information.
