Horizontal spacer

Tavagnacco, Udine - (September 27, 2018) - Today, the final Agenda is announced for the seminar: OPTIMIZE YOUR PRINT, Additive Manufacturing optimization to improve your product performance which will take place on October 23rd 2018 in Varano de' Melegari, Parma, Italy.

The seminar is organized by MSC Software, worldwide leader in the development of Additive Manufacturing simulation software technology and Beam-IT, Additive Manufacturing pioneer in Italy; to promote and encourage AM (Additive Manufacturing) technologies and the use of advanced design systems. AM workflow enables industry to deliver highly performant items, above and beyond the limits of subtractive production processes. Improvements on a final product's mechanical performance can be achieved if the complete workflow is analyzed and optimized without affecting time and cost as may happen in a classic trial & error approach.

MSC Software has developed specific methodologies aiming to help industry to face up to many of the productivity challenges related to process and product analysis, reducing validation of performance time and cost, as well as increasing a company's competitiveness in the Industry 4.0 era.

Beam-IT is an additive manufacturing company having the biggest machine park in Europe. Starting with the prototyping of plastic parts, it is also now specialized in metal additive manufacturing. Beam-IT stands out not only due to its willingness to innovate but also due to a steady research contribution in a sector which has incredible potential for growth. The passion and force of its team has contributed tremendously to the development of the company's expansion into the international market.

Sponsored by AITA (Associazione Italiana Tecnologie Additive), the seminar will cover some topics such as:

  • Design for additive - latex structure optimization to get higher product performance
  • Virtual workflow analysis - error reduction due to productive process definition

Furthermore, the seminar will be supported by Università di Parma illustrating how innovative research in the AM field will produce an impact that's bound to enhance industry competitiveness. The seminar is the first one organized by Beam-IT and MSC Software Italia in the context of a recently defined strategic partnership between the companies which points to support of the development of Additive Manufacturing Technologies. The partnership will consolidate the implementation of new Additive Manufacturing Technologies in terms of advanced research, and improvement of design elements to increase effectiveness of production technologies. Goals such as this can only be reached by sharing industry competences, technology suppliers and University experiences.

The event will take place at the Sala Congressi of Albergo della Roccia in Varano de' Melegari, Parma, Italy. At the end of the event attendants will be able to join a guided visit of the Beam-IT production plant in Fornova di Taro, Parma.
