Additive Works, a leading provider of highly usable solutions for additive manufacturing and Laser Beam Melting (LBM) technology, will present the new release of its Amphyon software at this year’s formnext2018 in Frankfurt, Germany (November 13-16). Amphyon is the company’s simulation-driven process software for powder bed-based, laser beam melting additive manufacturing processes. Providing first-time-right support structures, the new Amphyon release comes with a new support module ensuring the automatic generation of optimized support structures. Additional enhancements of Amphyon include adaptive meshing allowing for the calculation of larger and more complex components and the possibility to export layer data.
The Amphyon software helps engineers to generate first-time-right support structures which are essential for a high-quality print in additive manufacturing. The software makes sure that critical values are not exceeded and the desired shape of the part will be achieved. Amphyon’s new support module now also automatically creates the support geometry, ensuring a stable process and a minimized post-processing effort. This way, the new version is paving the way for a simulation driven workflow that will not only save material but also reduce the required calculation time and development costs. In addition to the new support module, the new release allows for adaptive meshing that enables the user of the software to perform calculations of larger and more complex components. This will lead to tremendous time savings when developing models for laser beam melting AM. Furthermore, users of the 2018 version will now be able to export layers and thus benefit from an improved workflow integrating the support module and an improved connectivity to machines.
With more than 500 exhibitors presenting their solutions and more than 20,000 expected visitors from all around the globe, formnext is one of Europe’s key events for additive manufacturing and related solutions. The event focuses on the latest developments in the manufacturing of parts and products using additive techniques, and how this technology can be employed in serial production.
At the Additive Works booth (#3.1-G51), visitors will experience live demos and will have the chance to get a first-hand impression of the new version. The company’s experts will give insights into the new features and capabilities of the software, demonstrate how to prepare models, and provide answers to all AM and LBM related questions.
“We are excited to present the new version of our first-time-right additive manufacturing solution at formnext in Frankfurt. The new version will be a significant improvement for Amphyon users who can now perform calculations of even larger and more complex models and benefit from an overall improved, simulation-driven workflow. The new features, such as automatic generation of support structures, adaptive meshing, and the possibility to export layers will lead to significant time savings,” said Dr. rer. Nat. Nils Keller, Co-Founder & CEO at Additive Works. “With the new version, we are taking Amphyon to the next level, helping our customers to become even more efficient. Formnext will be the perfect platform to present our new module and I’m looking forward to demonstrating the latest features of our solution and its potential benefits to our visitors.”
