Dyndrite has announced that it is now a member of the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS). The company will work with researchers at the NMIS Digital Factory who are focused on developing knowledge of Laser Powder Bed Fusion 3D printing (LBPF) materials across a range of industries.
Dyndrite will collaborate with researchers at the NMIS Digital Factory who are focused on developing knowledge of laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process materials in a variety of industries. The group will work on a variety of R&D projects, from evaluating fatigue strength and corrosion resistance for biomedical applications to determining the best material properties for parts used in the energy sector.
With members from across the industry, including Infor, Baker Hughes, Fanuc, ATS Global, Sandvik, Skyreal, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, Beckhoff, Nikken and Renishaw, Dyndrite joins a rapidly growing list of innovators looking to collaborate on complex additive manufacturing (AM) problems, especially as they expand available materials and automate production.
“We are delighted to join forces with NMIS and members to develop AM metals materials and explore production automation of LPBF using repeatable build recipes,” said Stephen Anderson, Head of Strategic Relationships Dyndrite. “By removing variation in the print process we showcase how additive manufacturing scales to allow users to make more parts with greater consistency at a lower price. This is the key to unlocking new markets in 3D metal printing. This effort will drive metal AM into a mainstream production process and enable simpler traceability from powder to part.
Dyndrite recently unveiled its first AM application for end users: Dyndrite Materials and Process Development for LPBF. This GPU-based 3D application, aimed at female engineers and scientists, simplifies and automates the development of metal alloys and parts for laser-based 3D metal printing. It takes advantage of Dyndrite’s breakthrough Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE). Dyndrite’s LPBF application increases print throughput, accelerates development and lowers part costs.
“We’re excited to welcome Dyndrite as our newest NMIS member, where they will be working with our Additive team,” said Stephen Fitzpatrick, Director NMIS Digital Factory. “Dyndrite is a leading provider of 3D software for engineering, and manufacturing applications. Our deployment will immediately help develop and grow our AM materials capabilities. Over the next year, we aim to collaborate on research projects that showcase novel additive use cases within process qualification and calibration and automated production lines. We look forward to getting started.”
