Leverage the Power of Simulation-Driven Design
In order to stay competitive while pushing the envelope on innovation, simulation must drive the entire design process from the early concept design phase all the way to production. Leveraging robust simulation—including motion analysis, finite element analysis, and manufacturing feasibility analysis—early and often has become a necessary driver to innovation and is helping numerous industry-leading companies to meet quality, cost, and time-to-market targets.
The Benefits of Designing Medical Devices with Topology Optimization and Additive Manufacturing
The additive manufacturing industry continues to grow as serial manufacturing applications across many sectors are realized. Topology optimization and generative design software further exploit the benefits and capacity of additive manufacturing by generating designs that increase function and reduce material, weight, design time, and cost. Increasingly, selective laser melting applications featuring medical-grade Titanium are utilized in the production of orthopedic implants, such as lumbar and cervical fusion cages, with lattice structures that increase bone in-growth. This major benefit to patients is complemented by a reduction in material, production time and cost to manufacturers. Learn how companies are increasing functionality while decreasing costs by combining design optimization and advanced additive manufacturing technologies.
