Thermal Simulation

Explore our thermal simulation to gain insight of the physical process. We effectively reduce the time required to obtain an optimized parameter set, and so can you.

  • Finite Element Modeling (FEM) simulations via element birth technique
  • Remelting depth during metal deposition for fusion quality
  • Thermal history of every element is known, leaving no surprises
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm to accelerate process parameter optimization
