Vincent Systems Prosthetics Give Patients A New Feel For Life

The human hand is a biomechanical marvel and therefore hard to replace. Being ready to take up this challenge the Vincent Systems GmbH builds ultra-sophisticated prosthetic hands and partial hand systems since the founding in 2009. Ever since the Company attempts to mimic the range of the human hands natural capabilities by combining mechanical performance with an anatomically correct sized soft-shell design and an intuitive usage. This Webinar gives the audience a brief introduction to the daily work at the Vincent Systems GmbH and on how their products affect the life of prosthesis wearers. Precision, functionality and control have to go hand in hand with aesthetic design and natural feel. Vincent Systems masters all these challenges within PTC’s Creo 3D CAD system and the computing power of the HP Z420 workstation. You will get an overview about how these systems work and on how they are designed and build.

Design and Optimization of Turbomachinery using NUMECA CFD

CFD simulations have played a vital role in helping engineers design efficient turbomachines. These simulations not only reduce prototyping cost but also help improve efficiency and performance. One challenge with these simulations is the engineering time required to get accurate solutions. Engineers spend tremendous amounts of time to generate a good quality mesh and then wait for several hours - if not for days - to get a converged solution.

Advances in Metal Additive Manufacturing -- the Development and Applications of Electron Beam Freeform Fabrication (EBF3)

Metal additive manufacturing, also called “3D printing,” has blossomed over the past decade, growing from a novelty research area to commercial systems used in a variety of small-scale production applications. Electron beam freeform fabrication (EBF3) is an additive manufacturing process that builds three-dimensional metal parts layer-by-layer using wire feedstock and an electron beam heat source. Researchers at NASA’s Langley Research Center initiated development of EBF3 to address challenges in applying metal additive manufacturing to large-scale structural aircraft components, launch vehicles, and in-space manufacturing for building tools, spares and replacement parts for use in space. This webcast will discuss the maturation of the EBF3 technology from inception to commercialization and will describe some of NASA’s current and emerging applications of this additive manufacturing technology.
