Bridging the Gap: Flight-Based Evaluations Soar to New Heights with Advanced Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is being heralded as a disruptive technology in aerospace, and for good reason – it’s literally changing the way aircrafts are being manufactured. Just ask Area-I, an aerospace engineering company, which has been partnering with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing, an advanced manufacturing services organization, to create PTERA, an unmanned Prototype Technology Evaluation and Research Aircraft that helps fill a technology gap between wind tunnel and manned flight testing. On this Webinar, engineers from both teams will talk about how additive manufacturing helped PTERA get off the ground – literally.

Optimizing Heavy Equipment for Handling Bulk Materials with Adams-EDEM Co-simulation

This Webinar examines the challenges of designing bulk material handling equipment and demonstrates how co-simulation benefits engineers. By co-simulating environments, this enables engineers to realistically model the motion of equipment as it interacts with a bulk material and examine how material loads are transferred throughout their mechanical system. Designs can be virtually tested for a wide range of materials types and equipment maneuvers.

Photo-Chemical Machining (PCM) of metals…faster & more cost effective than you’d think!

Photo-Chemical Machining (PCM) or photo-etching of metals is a mature process used to create very accurate metal components. This process emerged in the 1960s as an offshoot of the printed circuit board industry. PCM can produce highly complex parts with very fine details, quickly, accurately and economically. Photo etching is a cost effective alternative to stamping, punching, laser cutting, water jet cutting, or electrical discharge machining (EDM) of thin gauge precision parts.
