Digimat is used to obtain material properties for existing composites and can be used together with FEA codes to perform microscopic-material simulation on large structures. Various materials such as composite materials (including the thermoplastic and thermoset polymers) and elastomers can be effectively modelled with Digimat. It can also be utilized to manage material data and design composite materials. It also provides a non-metal additive manufacturing solution to predict and prevent manufacturing errors.
Digimat offers optimized solutions to close the gap between the manufacturing process, material design and structural FEA. Non-linear strain-rate dependent material performance of composite materials are used as outputs of the manufacturing simulation, fiber orientations, residual stresses weld lines and void densities.
With the multiple modules included in Digimat, product development becomes predictive, enabling engineers and manufacturers to optimize micro and macro structure designs with more certainty and sustainability.
Additive Manufacturing Solution for Non-metal - Print Right the First Time
Digimat provides manufacturers, material suppliers and end-users with a powerful tool to simulate the additive manufacturing process of plastics and composites. Digimat offers a complete simulation platform for additive manufacturing. Material engineering, process simulation and structural analysis are all included in the technology. Both Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) are included in the 3D printing solution of Digimat. The solution enable users to reduce development costs and material while releasing the full potential of additive manufacturing.
Digimat consist of multiple modules to cover all the material development requirements.
