Sonaca and Siemens take additive manufacturing to a next level


Selected by the European Space Agency (ESA), Siemens and Sonaca are collaborating in the framework of the ongoing Design4AM project to enhance the Siemens Digital Innovation Platform for industrialization of additive manufacturing (AM) in aerospace industry. Based on the Siemens’ softwares, development of design methods dedicated for AM will be validated by Sonaca thanks to relevant cases studies of space applications selected in agreement with ESA (e.g. supports of satellite instruments, fittings structurally bonded to CFRP panel, bipods, etc). This will provide a robust Design & Sizing environment dedicated to AM structures based on most up to date Numerical Methods.
