Smart Manufacturing: Addressing Metal, Plastics, Composites and Additive Challenges


MSC Software invites you to attend our Smart Manufacturing industry day. 

Do you want to experiment with design changes to optimize performance and reduce material costs?

 Are you struggling to understand and overcome deformation, residual stress and warpage in welding, forming and additive manufacturing sequences?

Would you like your non-technical engineers to design products and optimize production processes faster and with greater ease? 

This event will review best of industry practices and solutions that are applicable to material development, metal forming, welding, assembly and additive manufacturing. 

Learn how to significantly improve manufacturing yield and quality by:

  • Virtual testing to predict and prove the optimal manufacturing process that limit distortion and residual stress
  • Reducing the time spent and associated cost of physical prototyping
  • Improving both existing production lines and new products in development

Space is limited, so register today!
