Article Text:

Hexagon and Raytheon Technologies have partnered to develop a simulation tool that will enable evaluation and optimization of metal additive manufacturing processes through the prediction of thermal history and defects at the laser path and powder layer scale.

Combining technologies from Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division and Raytheon Technologies’ Pratt and Whitney business, the new software will predict defects before 3D printing begins. This analysis will help designers and engineers evaluate the print outcome and test combinations of materials, geometries, and print processes.

“The ability to evaluate full laser powder bed fusion parts on the meso-scale will reduce the effort to achieve part certification and thereby support industrialization of metal 3D printing,” said Jeff Robertson, Hexagon’s director of global business development.
