Discover the Power of Pervasive Simulation – ANSYS R 18

Introducing the Release of ANSYS 18

Manufacturing is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the introduction of the assembly line. Trends like the Internet of Things, additive manufacturing and machine learning are merging the physical and digital worlds, resulting in products that defy imagination.

Join the new CEO of ANSYS, Ajei Gopal, and visionary customers

CumminsNebia,OticonMetso, and GE Digital as they demonstrate the power of pervasive simulation, available in the release of ANSYS 18.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How you can use digital exploration to quickly evaluate changes in design, reducing development costs and preventing late-stage design changes
  • How digital prototyping enables you to provide insights into real-world product performance, test “what-if” scenarios and ensure optimal designs
  • How simulation is moving downstream of the product life-cycle through the use of digital twins to increase efficiency and to decrease unplanned downtime

Stay tuned as we will be covering the new additions in ANSYS 18 over the next few months.

Work for a startup or know someone who does? – Don’t miss this opportunity!

We here at PADT would like to remind you that our webinar covering the significance of simulation for startups is taking place soon!

Join us: Wednesday January 25, 2017

From 12 pm – 1 pm MST

PADT’s Co-owner and Principal, Eric Miller, will be presenting on the various benefits that simulation software can provide for startup companies and entrepreneurs alike. By attending this webinar you will learn:

  • The practical uses of simulation in product design
  • How simulation has driven innovation
  • Why simulation is the most effective tool for startups
  • How simulation can reduce time to market as well as production costs
  • And how you can take advantage of the discounts that the ANSYS Startup Program provides

While many startups tend to avoid using simulation due to cost or a lack of accessibility, this is a key aspect of the modern manufacturing process and should not be ignored.

As a partner in the Startup Program, you will gain instant access to ANSYS solutions so you can start building virtual prototypes of your new products. These virtual prototypes can be modified and tested with simulation hundreds of times in the same time it would take to build and test one physical prototype – saving you time and money as you work to perfect your product design. The partnership gives you access to the full portfolio of multiphysics simulation bundles, including the Structural and Fluids bundle and the Electromagnetics bundle.

Take advantage of this opportunity and register today!

Seminar: Medical Device Product Development for Startups – The Bitter Pill

We will be kicking off our Arizona Bioscience Week with this a free seminar at CEI in Phoenix with a sometimes brutally honest discussion on the reality of medical device product development.

No one wants to discourage a good idea, and entrepreneurs make it a long way before someone sits them down and explains how long and expensive the engineering of a medical device product is. In this one hour seminar PADT will share the hard and cold realities of the process, not to discourage people, but to give them the facts they need.

Get the details and register here.

July Events in Review

Last month was all about 3D Printing, with a booth in Tucson and a road show to show off a brand new printer.


The ACTE AZ event in Tucson is always a fantastic chance for us to meet with our education customers and show educators why industrial quality systems are the right solution for classrooms and labs. The team had a great time… but didn’t send any pictures.


ICOSA_07169-150x150The “Full Color 3D Printer Road Show” was a big success. We started in Denver at a Brewery (we need to do this more often) with great presentations and a ton of sample parts that highlight the capability of the new Stratasys J750. We then moved the machines and parts on to Downtown Salt Lake City and where the interaction was fantastic amongst many veteran users.  The final stop was in Scottsdale Arizona where we had our largest crowd and more great interaction.

ICOSA_30368-768x512The Denver event was on the local Money Talk radio station. You can listen to the interview here.

Not to be outdone, a local TV station covered the Arizona event. That clip can be found here.

Webinar Content: Answers to your Questions on Metal 3D Printing

Download a recording and the slides from this this informative webinar.

3d-metal-printing-webinar-slide-1Metal Additive Manufacturing, or Metal 3D Printing, is a topic that generates a lot of interest, and even more questions.  So we held a webinar on February 9th, 2016 to try and answer the most common questions we encounter. It was a huge success with over 150 people logging in to watch live.  But many of you could not make it so we have put the slides and a recording of the webinar out there.  Just go to this link to access the information.

The presentation answered the fllowing common questions:

  • Introductory:
    • Who are PADT and Concept Laser?
    • How does laser-based metal 3D printing work?
    • Are there other ways to 3D print in metal and how do they compare?
  • Technical:
    • What are the different process steps involved?
    • How “good” are 3D printed metal parts?
  • Strategic:
    • What materials and machines do you offer?
    • Who uses this technology today?
    • What is the value proposition of metal 3D printing for me?
    • What can I do after this webinar?

As always, our technical team is available to answer any additional questions you may have. Just shoot an email to metal-am@padtinc.com or give us a call at 480.813.4884.

Encore Lunch and Learn: Designing and Simulating Products for 3D Printing

3dprinting-production-1PADT would like to invite you to a free seminar or webinar on how to use 3D Printing to manufacture parts for your products.

In February, PADT held a Lunch and Learn with the AZ Tech Council on "Designing and Simulating Products for 3D Printing."  The event sold out and we received a lot of interest in being able to attend over the web. So we have scheduled a second version of this presentation to be given live at CEI in Phoenix on March 23rd, 2015 that will also be broadcast over the web.  

Here is some info on the presentation:

This proven technology has moved from prototyping to tooling and now the creation of final parts.  However, you can't just print your existing design. PADT will cover the techniques and processes needed to evaluate existing designs to find parts that can be switched to 3D printing as well as how to design new parts to take advantage of 3D printing. 

3dprinting-production-2

When:
Monday, March 23, 2015
11:30am – 1:00pm 
Where:
CEI
275 N. GateWay Drive
Phoenix, AZ 85034
Webinar:
WebEx
Please Register, we will send you login information 
  Lunch will be Served for those attending live

We will begin with a review on the current state of 3D Printing technologies, including the creation of accurate and usable metal parts. That will be followed with design guidelines and processes and finishing up with a look at how you can use simulation to drive the design your 3D Printed components so that they work.

Please Register

Lunch is included so we need a headcount for those joining us at CEI, and we need to send login information to those attending over the web.  So Please Register
