Additive Flow has developed high-performance and high-quality simulation software for mechanical, thermal, thermomechanical properties, along with frequency and fatigue across a range of materials and processes. Their product addresses design, production and quality decisions, while optimizing for cost, weight, manufacturing productivity and manufacturing yield—all simultaneously.
The customer base of Additive Flow is from the following vertical market segments:
- Advance Optics & Optoelectronics
- Aerospace & Defense
- Advanced Energy
Additive Flow’s artificial intelligence and graphics processing unit accelerated software will enhance the ability of Nano Dimension customers to replicate, design, and augment AME electronic components’ prototypical layouts. Additive Flow’s core technology will be integrated into Nano Dimension’s proprietary design package suite, FLIGHT.
“The Additive Flow team is thrilled to join Nano Dimension,” says Alexander Pluke, chief executive officer and chief technology officer of Additive Flow. “Our solution was born out of real engineering challenges we faced to harness the capability of advanced manufacturing. Our platform is built from the ground up to handle all the complex data and decisions of digital engineering, so teams can focus on their key goals. We are fortunate to have found a great partner in Nano Dimension where our innovation can be leveraged to its maximum potential.”
“We have been looking at the software market for simulation and optimization offerings for some time,” says Nick Geddes, senior chief technology officer of Nano Dimension. “There are many strong solutions in the market that do certain elements of those complicated tasks, but it is Additive Flow’s product that stood out in terms of the functionality we needed for a holistic solution, especially in the context of our requirements across AME and multi-dimensional polymer, metal and ceramic AM. The acquisition will add considerable firepower to the ability of our customers to leverage our leading digital manufacturing solutions.”
