Design & Re-design
Thanks to their digitalized design, AM parts and products are ready for production in the workshops of tomorrow. Smart Factories promise highly optimized production flow and assure quality .
By mastering design rules and tools, we help you to maximize the benefits of additive manufacturing
Optimization: Advanced design tools and the freedom native to AM design makes highly optimized parts and products possible. Perfecting mass, volume, eigen modes, or thermal conduction make a real difference when performance is decisive.
Streamlining: Product complexity can be drastically reduced by merging several parts—even dozens—allowing substantial cost savings and increased reliability.
Adding new, built-in functions increases end products’ added value.
- Integrated power and signal routing: by printing electrical wires inside structural metallic parts, CSEM’s patented and proven technology opens the door wide to the design of parts featuring advanced, built-in functions such as sensors.
- Integrated mobile parts based on built-in printed flexure elements can replace ball or friction bearings, guaranteeing infinite motion lifetime, even in harsh or stringent environments (space; corrosive; ultra-clean).
- Heating or cooling channels can be integrated into mechanical parts—a significant asset when a part has to be thermalized (molding industry; vacuum technologies).
