  • Development of Pharmaceutical Equipment Using 3D Printing - PVAMC Sep 17 2020 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Steven Kjar, Design Engineer - BioProduction Division, Thermo Fisher Scientific
    Join PADT and Thermo Fisher Scientific's Steven Kjar for a presentation on the use of additive manufacturing in the development process for pharmaceutical equipment.

    Historically additive manufacturing has had a limited role within companies who supply to the biopharmaceutical industry due to the industry’s requirements on materials and practices. Stainless steel components are typically used and switching over to the implementation of plastic-based materials used in additive manufacturing was a major undertaking.

    Not only do the advanced manufacturing process capabilities of Stratasys 3D printers make for a worthy solution, the company also produces a variety of composite materials that can operate within a bioreactor due to their unique characteristics.

    Ansys Sherlock automated design analysis software is the only Reliability Physics/Physics of Failure (PoF)-based electronics design analysis software that provides fast and accurate life predictions for electronic hardware at the component, board and system levels in early design stages. A unique, powerful capability of Sherlock is its revolutionary ability to rapidly convert electronic CAD (ECAD) files into CFD and FEA models with accurate geometries and material properties. Through its powerful parsing engine (capable of importing Gerber, ODB and IPC2581 files, etc.) and embedded libraries containing over 500,000 parts, Sherlock reduces pre-processing time from days to minutes and automates workflows through its integration with Ansys Icepak, Ansys Mechanical and Ansys Workbench.

    With its extensive parts/materials libraries, Sherlock automatically identifies your files and imports your parts list, then builds an FEA model of your circuit board in minutes. It also produces a holistic analysis that is critical to developing reliable electronics products. It enables designers to simulate each environment, failure mechanism and assembly that a product might encounter over its lifespan.

    Ever since NASA began its race to space, U.S. technology companies have searched for solutions to solve a variety of challenges designed to push us further in our exploration of the stars. Whether the purpose is for space travel or for launching satellites that track weather patterns, space innovation is gaining momentum. One of the most critical challenges we are trying to solve is how to optimize communication with moving spacecrafts. Tucson Arizona's FreeFall Aerospace has an answer; developing unique antenna systems for both space and ground use.

    When working to develop this technology, FreeFall ran into a number of roadblocks due to limitations in its engineering software tool-set. The company was able to bypass these hurdles and successfully optimize development thanks to the introduction of Ansys HFSS, a specialized 3D electromagnetic software used for designing and simulating high-frequency electronic products such as antennas, antenna arrays, RF/microwave components, and much more. Because of the speed of this tool and its ability to solve multiple simulation challenges in different domains, FreeFall is able to make design changes more quickly and with better data.

  • Combining Simulation with Additive Manufacturing to Optimize Product Design Recorded: Jun 17 2020 55 mins
    Doug Oatis, Lead Mechanical Engineer, PADT, Inc.
    Advatech Pacific, a Phoenix-based aerospace and defense contractor founded in 1995, works to change the way engineering is conducted for the better by incorporating innovative technologies into its customer’s workflow. Based on the success of previous projects, Advatech is a strong proponent of using high-end simulation software such as ANSYS to identify and evaluate the fine details of massive multi-body mechanical systems, whether through simple static analyses or tightly-coupled multiphysics computations.

    Implementing additive manufacturing as an additional way to improve system design presented opportunities to cut back on tooling costs and reduce lead time for several candidate turbine-engine parts. Doing so would also alleviate the challenge of reproducing complex castings, a problem made increasingly difficult by the fact that many of the original casting providers are no longer in business.

    Join PADT's Lead Mechanical Engineer Doug Oatis, and Advatech Pacific's Engineering Manager Matt Humrick for a discussion on Ansys tools with regards to additive manufacturing & topology optimization, and how Advatech Pacific was able to use them to drastically improve the efficiency of their design and manufacturing process.
