Frame 1

Leveraging State of the Art Design, Simulation, Build, Inspection, and Test to Bring Next Generation Products to Market

In this unique and virtual collaborative project, multiple industry leaders from nTopology, ANSYS, Synopsys, EOS, and North Star Imaging (NSI) took on the challenge to develop a clean slate, rapid design of a traditional heat exchanger leveraging their most advanced capabilities that our companies offered.

As a result, the new design is:

  • 80% lighter
  • 40% smaller in form-factor
  • 40x more efficient in heat transfer than conventional technology

 

The agility of the team’s participants enabled the entire process to be completed in less than 4 months. This included all the critical steps of design, simulations, inspection, and testing.

As part of this 6-part webinar series, you will learn how you can leverage common and commercially available solutions to replicate similar advancements in your own product development.

Description

Additive manufacturing (AM) is gaining popularity among manufacturers across many industries, but in order to ensure the optimal part design before going into production, a design, simulation, fabrication, testing, and quality assurance workflow needs to be put in place, which can be a daunting task, to say the least.

Since AM is a relatively new domain, different parts of the design to manufacture process tend to happen ad-hoc or in silos without much cross-pollination among the many groups and subject matter experts involved. Therefore, validating 3D-printed parts remains a large challenge. Manufacturers need to not only understand how to leverage new design techniques that have become available through AM, but also to make sure these designs lead to optimized build success, minimized deviations from original designs, and maximized performance when in use.

Join us for this first of six webinars in this series: A Journey Through Advanced Manufacturing in 2021 to learn about how you can leverage common and commercially available solutions to replicate similar advancements in your own product development.

Description

Leveraging state-of-the-art design and simulation tools to produce higher-performing heat exchangers in volume-constrained applications is the focus of this presentation.

In collaboration with ANSYS, nTopology is demonstrating how the next-generation of implicit geometry representations can be used to drive the future of heat exchanger designs. We will discuss how we can leverage the power of implicit modeling to generate complex surfaces that provide incredible gains in heat exchanger performance.
