Dyndrite and Novanta Team Up to Enhance Metal Printing Capabilities
Companies to create proof-of-concept allowing Dyndrite software to directly generate low-level scanning trajectories for use with Novanta hardware.
November 10, 2022
Dyndrite, providers of the graphics processing unit-accelerated computation engine used to create next-generation digital manufacturing hardware and software, announced a collaboration with Novanta Corporation in support of their Firefly 3D and Lightning II laser beam steering solutions. The companies will collaborate on a proof-of-concept that will allow Dyndrite software to directly generate low-level scanning trajectories for Novanta hardware. This provides users of Dyndrite Additive CAM software the ability to generate fine resolution scanner trajectories, which makes use of the advanced functions of the laser scanner hardware.
Novanta’s scanning solutions, used in various laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) machines, are often capable of being operated at much higher levels of performance with a wide range of scan strategies.
Engineered as an enclosed, compact solution to enable multi-headed machine architectures with up to 100% overlap, Firefly 3D is a solution for serial production high-throughput additive manufacturing machines. Incorporated within the design are features to simplify installation and operation including features such as precise monitoring of the additive manufacturing process and synchronized process and motion data.
“High-performance scanners such as Novanta’s Firefly 3D and Lightning II are designed with smart technology to predict their own capabilities and limits,” says Simon Matthias, technical business development manager, Novanta. “This informs the controlling hardware how best they can be driven to allow full use of the scanners’ complete bandwidth.”
“Dyndrite was formed as we saw that the manufacturing hardware had outpaced the software,” says Harshil Goel, CEO, Dyndrite. “Our work with Novanta is one step closer to reversing this industry-stifling trend.”
If attending Formnext 22, Dyndrite and Novanta invite attendees to stop by their respective booths: Dyndrite Hall #11.0 Booth #C61; Novanta Hall #12.0 Booth #E08.
