Improving Fatigue Life of Metal AM parts

High-Cycle Fatigue (HCF) is one of the most critical issues in mechanical engineering: from the first studies on railway axles to the infamous De Havilland Comet, this phenomenon led to some of the most tragic failures in the history of mechanics. Centuries of science and investigation led to a much better understanding of fatigue life […]

2D vs 3D x-ray digital scanning: a complex choice between two complementary techniques

The continuous increase in complexity and size of 3D printed parts requires a careful analysis of the methodologies used to verify their integrity. Among these, special importance is covered by X-ray inspections. Traditionally, without destructive testing, full metrology has only been performed on the exterior dimensions of components, such as with a coordinate-measuring machine (CMM) […]

Additive Manufacturing – Concept to Production by SIMULIA

Changing the Design Process Additive manufacturing has not only changed the way things are being built, but how they are designed. SIMULIA CTO Bruce Engelmann believes that additive techniques have the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry, such as Henry Ford did with the automotive industry back in the early 1900s. “Before Henry Ford the […]
