Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
PITTSBURGH, June 29, 2016 — Engineering software developer Ansys Inc. has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh to advance additive manufacturing.

The two entities aim to solve industry problems such as unexpected metal melting and stress deformities. Lab workers will have access to the Ansys portfolio, enabling them to explore, simulate and analyze solutions for stress and fatigue on critical components that go into products such as airplanes, cars and medical devices.

As part of the partnership, the university is opening a 1,200-sq-ft additive manufacturing lab in the Swanson School of Engineering. The Ansys Additive Manufacturing Research Laboratory is equipped with advanced additive manufacturing devices that utilize metals, alloys, polymers and other materials to laser print components for nearly every industry. The partnership will also support faculty and students conducting collaborative research with Ansys and other industry partners including those in the biomedical, aerospace and defense industries.
