Virfac® AM outputs

1
Residual Distortions

Virfac® AM predicts the distortions of the workpiece due to the additive manufacturing process.

2
Residual Stresses

Virfac® AM predicts the level of residual stresses which can be used to compute the in-service fatigue life of the built part.

3
Supports optimization

Virfac® AM predicts the influence of the supports on the build and eventually their possible failure due to high stresses.

4
Build-up orientation

Virfac® AM predicts the impact of the build-up orientation of the distortions and residual stresses.

Virfac® AM in a nutshell

Virfac® Additive Manufacturing


Experimental Validation

In partnership with Sirris (Belgium), Geonx has validated its technology successfully, comparing numercial predictions with the experimental measurements on a typical Cantilever application.
