Intech Additive Solutions, a global leader in Additive Manufacturing, has collaborated with UIT-Dresden to develop and optimise new materials for metal 3D printing using AMOptoMet software Ultimate version 2.0. UIT-Dresden is short for Umwelt- und Ingenieurtechnik GmbH Dresden (UIT-Dresden), and it is a subsidiary of General Atomics Europe / General Atomics (USA).

AMOptoMet is Intech Additive’s Metal LPBF Parameter Optimization Software.

Materials for Metal 3D Printing using AMOptoMet Software

Intech and UIT-Dresden will collaborate on mutually beneficial projects. UIT-research Dresden’s and development in advanced materials and material characterisation for use in Metal 3D Printing, as well as fundamental Multiphysics simulations of the Metal 3D Printing process, complementing the AMOptoMet software’s parameter prediction and optimisation capabilities.

Specific projects with specific goals will be identified to assist both UIT-research Dresden’s programmes and the development and validation of Intech’s AMOptoMet software.

“AMOptoMet is a parameter optimization software that provides the right process parameters to achieve better surface finish and desirable mechanical properties in metal 3D printed parts. The software helps in printing parts “Right First time” and reduces the time taken for the Design of Experiments (DOE) when developing parameters to print new materials. UIT-Dresden’s use of AMOptoMet in their research projects further validates the software and gives us invaluable feedback to incorporate features to address new and emerging applications and materials in metal 3D printing. We look forward to our collaboration with UIT-Dresden.”

– Sridhar Balaram, CEO & Founder of Intech Additive Solutions

According to Dr. Horst Maerten, Director for Science and Technology at UIT-Dresden, “Intech’s AMOptoMet has been of great help in our R&D activities. Our initial studies indicate that the software can be used by UIT-Dresden as a reference against UIT-Dresden’s theoretical studies and simulation efforts coupled with the test data obtained from experiments on DMG MORI 3D printers at UIT’s affiliates within the General Atomics group of companies.”

Dr. Maerten added, “UIT’s research efforts will contribute to the further validation of the AMOptoMet software for specific applications and materials, like superalloys and nano-functionalized alloy powders for advanced AM processing, and provide useful feedback based on our experience of using the software.”

About Umwelt- und Ingenieurtechnik GmbH Dresden: Since its inception in 1990, UIT has been at the forefront of environmental project planning, evaluation, construction, and execution. Their studies cover a wide range of topics, including environmental monitoring, water technology, and mineral resources.
