Siemens said that it has signed an agreement to acquire Atlas 3D, Inc. Atlas 3D is set to join Siemens Digital Industries Software for the expansion of its additive manufacturing abilities. Sunata software utilizes thermal twist analysis. It helps it to offer an easy, automatic way to optimize sections build familiarization and create support and compositions.
This approach lets the designer perform such simulations. As a result, it reduces the downstream review that needs to be administered through Simcenter software. This leads to achieving a section that matches the design needs. Siemens intends to make the Atlas 3D accessible via its online Additive Manufacturing Network.
“We welcome Atlas 3D to the Siemens community as the newest member of our additive manufacturing team. Our solutions industrialize additive manufacturing for large enterprises, 3D printing service bureaus, design firms and CAD designers,” said Senior Vice President, Manufacturing Engineering Software of Siemens Digital Industries Software, Zvi Feuer.
“The cloud-based Sunata software makes it easy for designers to determine the optimal way to 3D print parts for high quality and repeatability. The combination of Sunata with the robust CAE additive manufacturing tools in Simcenter enables a ‘right first time’ approach for industrial 3D printing.” He added.
Atlas 3D Chief CEO, Chad Barden said that Siemens leads in the additive manufacturing sector. It has the most organized and strong functionality solutions in the sector and they are happy to join the team.
“The power of Sunata is that it equips designers to more easily design parts that are printable, which helps companies more quickly realize the benefits of additive manufacturing. As part of Siemens, we look forward to introducing Sunata to customers who already have Siemens’ AM solutions and can achieve new efficiencies in their front-end design-for-additive process, as well as companies who have yet to start their additive manufacturing journey.” Barden said.
The increased rate of 3D print frustration is the major challenge that companies encounter. This is especially in maximizing additive manufacturing for huge volume production. Often, the sections need to pass through different designs and outline repetitions before the best build familiarization and support compositions are determined.
Generally, designers do not have the ability to recognize such factors as part of orientation in their design. They don’t have the ability to also recognize factors like heat extraction steadiness and distortion in their design. It, therefore, places the onus on manufacturing experts to solve such matters.
Sunata Software of Atlas 3D resolves this issue. It offers the front-end designers a fast, simple and automatic means to get near to a “right first time” form.
Siemens Digital Industries Software is making the transformation for a digital business where manufacturing, engineering, and electronics design meet tomorrow. Also, the Xcelerator portfolio assists firms of all sizes to build and maximize digital twins. These would offer organizations with fresh insights, possibilities and automation levels to drive change.
The purchase is expected to close in Nov 2019. The terms of this deal were not revealed.
