Software company nTopology, headquartered in New York, USA, has announced the opening of its first European office in Regensburg, Germany.
The new location was added in response to the company’s growing partner and customer base in Europe who are creating highly complex designs suited for advanced- and additive-manufacturing processes.
“Large, global, enterprise-level manufacturing companies are adopting nTopology’s software to address engineering challenges and initiatives such as lightweighting, generative design and Industry 4.0,” said nTopology founder and CEO Bradley Rothenberg, adding: “Our expansion into Germany is the logical next step since that is the base for much of European manufacturing.”
The nTopology GmbH team will kick off the company’s expansion with a three-month tour, visiting select partners at their European production sites to showcase innovative design and manufacturing solutions – including simulation, topology optimisation, architected materials and more – that they are developing together.
The roadshow will culminate with the German and North American nTopology teams converging at the Formnext show in Frankfurt, 19-22 November.
New nTopology GmbH representative, Fabian Grupp, has worked in AM for his entire career and has seen the industry shift towards serial production of high-performance parts, with Germany being one of the most manufacturing-centric countries in the world.
Of the new European base, he said: “Our presence here will serve as an important resource to help customers realise increased product functionality, reduced development cycles and optimised designs for AM.”
