Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

e-Xstream engineering, market-leader in multi-scale modeling of composite materials and structures, has today announced it will demonstrate Digimat 2018 for the first time at JEC World 2018.

Utilizing its 15 years of industry experience and expertise, e-Xstream engineering developed and launched its latest software solution, Digimat 2018, to offer automotive and aerospace manufacturers advanced levels of efficiency, combined with a highly intuitive platform. Users can now benefit from a faster, more robust system with access to additional molding manufacturing data and extended additive manufacturing material, process and part performance capabilities.

“Digimat 2018 provides CAE engineers, materials scientists and specialists in manufacturing with a comprehensive, reliable solution that speeds up the development process for composite materials and structures. This market-leading platform plays an integral part in the concept-to-production workflow. At JEC, attendees will see this first-hand when it is demonstrated live on the stand as part of the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence end-to-end suite of solutions.”  Dr. Roger Assaker, Chief Material Strategist of MSC Software and CEO of e-Xstream engineering.

Hexagon, which acquired e-Xstream engineering’s parent company MSC Software in 2017, will use JEC World 2018 to showcase the production of a surf kite from initial concept to manufacture. Visitors will be guided through the product’s development and will witness Digimat 2018 in action at two crucial points in the process: the material design phase, when the software is used to accurately determine the material most suitable and cost-effective for this application; and, further into the process, when a 3D printed model will be generated to validate the chosen design.

Dr. Assaker continues: “This comprehensive demonstration will highlight how the different products in Hexagon’s portfolio fit together to create a more productive, higher quality manufacturing process. We want JEC visitors to experience Digimat 2018 for themselves and fully understand how this platform can be used to design and manufacture innovative composite materials and parts quickly and efficiently, saving users time and money.”
