The partnership will address the full additive manufacturing process including design, analysis, build, test and certification, aiming to offer a start-to-finish service primarily to the aerospace industry.
Altair will lead the provision of solidThinking Inspire software for design and analysis, Morf3d will lead program management, part production, R&D and associated quality control and RUAG will take the lead on design, analysis, documentation, testing and certification.
The team will use the 3D printing facility Morf3D’s Innovation Centre in El Segundo, California, which includes various DMLS systems, and the test facilities at Ruag.
“We are excited to participate with Ruag and Morf3d on advancing the AM process for Aerospace applications”, said Dr. Robert Yancey, VP of Aerospace at Altair Engineering.
“There is clearly a need for resources to help companies navigate the challenges of using AM and this partnership will have all of the necessary expertise and technology to help companies be successful with AM.”
