Simulation in Additive Manufacturing

Hands-On Lunch and Learns

While great strides have been made in Additive Manufacturing, many companies still face challenges with achieving part consistency and keeping down production costs due to failure to correctly produce parts. Integrating simulation into Additive Manufacturing processes can help address these challenges.

Attend one of our FREE Lunch and Learns to learn how to use simulation to lower material costs, ensure part quality, and reduce production time! Lunch and Learns will be offered for both Metals and Plastics, so pick the topic that is most relevant to you!

Presenters

Arjaan Buijk received his MS in Aerospace Engineering from the Technical University of Delft in 1988, after which he joined MSC Software. Over the course of his 25 years in the industry, he has gained specific expertise in the field of metal manufacturing simulation, using the software products Simufact.forming, Simufact.welding, and Simufact Additive. 

Pierre-Yves Lavertu holds a Bachelors Degree in Material Engineering from Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. He started his career as an Interior FAA stress certification and knowledge consultant at Dassault Systemes, where he spent five years. After Dassault Systemes, he moved to a Finite Element Analysis position at Convergent Manufacturing. He started working as an Application Engineer at e-Xstream engineering in 2015, where he is responsible for understanding customer problems and using e-Xstream's technology to solve those problems, conducting customer training, providing technical support to North American customers, and participating in collaborative R&D projects with customers and academic partners. 

Zach Pursell received his MS in Mechanical Engineering from San Diego State University in 1995, after which he joined Marc Analysis Research Corporation. He joined MSC Software in 2000 and Simufact Americas in 2011. Throughout this time he has worked primarily as a project manager and consulting engineer, specializing in metal forming and manufacturing analysis. He has developed several custom applications and analysis methods for ring rolling, superplastic forming and other manufacturing simulations. 

Dustin Souza holds a Master of Science in Aerospace, Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from Purdue University. While earning his Masters Degree, Dustin worked closely with his advisor, Dr. Byron Pipes, to launch a composites nanohub site which encompassed all composites simulation programs. Dustin has worked as an Application Engineer at e-Xstream Engineering, an MSC Software Company, since 2013 and now specializes in partnering with automotive OEMs and suppliers to solve complex engineering challenges, especially those related to composites.
