Additive technologies make it possible to design and produce light and efficient products.
However, it is necessary to use different approaches compared to traditional processes, i.e. redesigning a 3D object through various phases according to the Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) methodology:
A first feasibility assessment on whether it is possible to use AM, considering the available technologies (materials, type of process-printer, etc.) to produce the component, as well as calculating the cost in comparison with other production technologies.
Topological optimization according to the expected mechanical performance. This iterative method allows various design possibilities to obtain “bionic” shapes mimicking efficient structures created by nature.
The production process simulation virtually reproduces the creation of the component, analyzing the complex physical process and reaching the perfect setting of the machine parameters. The simulation is essential to avoid increasing development time and costs by proceeding by trial and error with physical prototypes.
Throughout all these phases, NAMS employs a network of specialists who can create the model efficiently and, if necessary, according to the specifications required by the customer, suggest the most suitable supplier.
