仿真熨烫金属粘合剂喷射缺陷,以实现批量生产添加剂制造

水平垫片

伦敦,9月24日,2020年9月24日仿真一部分六角形制造智能部门的一部分引进了金属粘合剂喷射(MBJ)仿真,使制造商能够预测和防止烧结过程首次在设计阶段的零件上的变形。新的仿真工具标志着添加剂制造业的重要一步,因为它有助于制造商实现他们所需要的质量,同时利用独特的福利MBJ供应量生产。

Metal binder jetting is an emerging additive manufacturing technology that has several key advantages over common powder bed fusion processes; high volumes of parts can be printed with minimal spacing; no support structures are needed, and larger lot sizes are possible. It has the potential to replace low-volume, high-cost metal injection moulding for everything from automotive and aircraft parts to medical applications. Because high resolution is possible, it could also reduce the cost and lead times for production of complex and lightweight metallic parts such as gears or turbine wheels.

然而,早期采用者可以期待陡峭的学习曲线,了解如何实现他们需要利用这些效益所需的质量。一个关键挑战一直在预测烧结过程中的变化。一部分可以收缩多达35%,并且用于其他过程的简单收缩模型不能在后置烧结过程中预测失真。到目前为止,需要昂贵的物理试验来完善每个部件的印刷,防止许多制造商实现低成本和灵活性MBJ优惠。

Made available to existing Simufact Additive customers in August, the new tool extends its capabilities for MBJ processes. Manufacturers can predict the shrinkage caused by factors such as the thermal strain, friction, and gravity during sintering without specialist simulation knowledge. By compensating for these changes, parts can be 3D Printed as they are designed, and production teams can significantly reduce the proportion of parts that must be scrapped or re-processed. Sintering-induced mechanical stress is also predicted before print, indicating where defects might occur. Manufacturers can use this information to make changes earlier in their product development and reduce the need for costly redesign.

Designed for busy manufacturing professionals, the tool can automate the model setup, preparing the CAD or CAE file for manufacturing simulation and simulations can also be automated through Python scripts. To validate the sintering compensation and increase confidence in quality, the optimised geometry from the MBJ tool can be immediately compared to both the initial design (CAD) geometry and a metrology scan of a manufactured part within user interface.

"We are pleased to introduce the first solution for simulating metal binder jetting sintering process to the market so that manufacturers can take advantage of this important new method. We know customers see metal binder jetting as a pivotal technology for manufacturing, particularly where there's a need to need to produce intricate parts at high volumes like the automotive industry.

这些开发只有通过我们的制造和打印机设备合作伙伴和经验丰富的研发部门之间密切合​​作,“Gabriel McBain博士表示,高级总监和FTI。betway必威立式版本
