Altair announces material cooperation with HP

Altair has signed an agreement with HP in which HP will provide Altair with proprietary material information that supports the Altair Material Data Center, which enables designers and engineers to search and compare materials in a standalone application or through the interface of their simulation and optimization tools.

The collaboration between Altair and HP connects the often separate functions of designing and producing 3D printed parts. Engineers who have access to the Material Data Center can now use HP material data to design efficient parts, perform structural analysis using finite element analysis (FEA), and predict and fix production errors during design and simulation.

“Collaborating with HP will empower our customers to overcome the common challenge of access to accurate material property data, that often hinders the design and production of 3D-printed parts,” said Yeshwant Mummaneni, chief engineer, data management and analytics, Altair. “3D printing solutions are providing new and unique opportunities for businesses and industries of all sizes around the world – we are thrilled to continue providing best-in-class solutions and databases that help more people benefit from the technology and its adoption.”

The collaboration will also benefit users of Altair Inspire Print3D, which accelerates the creation, optimization and exploration of innovative, structurally efficient additively manufactured parts by providing a fast and accurate toolbox for the design and process simulation of parts produced by metal binder jetting.

“3D printing is at the forefront of so many next-generation opportunities – we are delighted to reinforce Altair’s robust databases and solutions with our library of material information,” said Arvind Rangarajan, global head, software and data, personalization, and 3D printing, HP. “Partnering with a technological leader like Altair will help organizations worldwide develop better products, shorten timelines, and minimize the prototyping process to reduce waste.”

To learn more, visit Altair at RAPID + TCT from June 25-27 at booth #800.
