CAE simulation software specialist MSC Software Corporation has signed an agreement with RMIT University’s Advanced Manufacture Precinct in Melbourne, Australia. The agreement covers additive manufacturing and pertains to the use of MSC Software’s Simufact Additive solution, which enables optimization of metal additive manufacturing processes, by the university.
The university houses one of the largest advanced manufacturing centers in Australia and is considered a leading advanced manufacturing R&D facility in the country. The Advanced Manufacturing Precinct combines RMIT’s expertise in technology and design innovation.
Prof. Milan Brandt, technical director at the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, RMIT University, said, “Our vision is to be a leader in the implementation of the next wave of manufacturing in Australia.
“To this end, we believe in working closely with the best in the industry, both in Australia and internationally, as we go about developing the next generation of engineers, designers and technicians for the world.
“MSC Software’s Simufact Additive is a great package because it combines the best approaches in one unique software solution through a multi-scaling approach. We find it extremely valuable as it lays the foundation for a wide variability and scalability through different levels of detail for the simulation results.”
Sridhar Dharmarajan, managing director, Indo-Pacific region, MSC Software, added, “RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct is leading the way in shaping the future of additive manufacturing locally with breakthrough research.
“Therefore, it gives us great pleasure to note that some of the best additive manufacturing minds of the future will have an opportunity to work with and understand MSC Software’s Simufact Additive before they embark on their professional careers.
“Additive manufacturing promises to completely redefine the way we look at manufacturing processes in the future,” he added.
