Altair
Altair

Altair provides Innovation Intelligence.

Out of this self-conception we are advocating a simulation driven design philosophy.

OptiStruct, developed by Altair is since 20 years the leading tool for topology optimization in the market. OptiStruct includes an unparalleled number of possibilities to articulate optimization tasks. Our engineering force is the most experienced in the world, when it comes to the application of numerical optimization in industrial applications. So we are performing optimization projects at every major Aero and Automotive OEM.

Based on this we created INSPIRE, the only concept design tool of its kind which is as easy to use as a smartphone app but brings behind the scenes the experience of an optimization expert to the table.
Adding a styling tool like EVOLVE in the process relieves the user from many painful time consuming tasks. Embedded in the process it can deploy all its power at its best. Adding new functionality like the polymesh technology is accelerating the process in an unknown manner.

So we assure that our clients unlock the true potential of Additive Manufacturing.

FTAS GmbH
FTAS GmbH

FTAS Sky is endless

Technology is our passion!

Upgrade your business

We stand for Innovative Technologies and State of the Art Manufacturing Technology. In addition to our 5-axis machining we specialise on Micro 3D Lasercoating Techniques. Our laser Fusion is a "forward-Iooking" layer construction process- able to produce fully dense metallic components directly from a computer aided design. This fine metallic powder is melted (sintered) using a high-performance ytterbium fibre laser and is formed directly into a three-dimensional functional component.

Complex and highly weight-reduced components which are not able to be manufactured byconventional production techniques are instead produced in a "Iayer by layer" process with this method. Component groups can be now produced for a one component, which is manufactured in a single process. Virtually any imaginable design is possible to manufacture and the innovative possibilities of the component functionality are almost limitless.

Take advantage of the reduced cost offered by this process for small production batches and prototypes and we are sure you will be convinced of the benefits.

We specialise in:

~ economical product ion of highly complex geometries

~ manufacturing of complex metal components in special materials.

Direct Manufacturing Research Center (DMRC)
Direct Manufacturing Research Center (DMRC)
The Direct Manufacturing Research Center is engaged in Additive Manufacturing (AM) methods, one of most important technologies of the future. The basic advantages are reduced production and process costs, shorter lead time, realization of complicated component geometry and demand oriented and timely production of components and spare parts. The introduction of the AM technology is bound to revolutionize design and construction because the designer can now concentrate on the requirements of the application instead of constricting his ideas depending on the manufacturing limitations. The DMRC consortium has at present the following members: The Boeing Company, Evonik Industries, EOS Electro Optical Systems GmbH, SLM Solutions GmbH, Stratasys Inc., Siemens AG, SAC (Stükerjürgen Aerospace Composites) GmbH, Blue Production GmbH, Wilhelm Eisenhuth GmbH, H&H Gesellschaft für Engineering und Prototypenbau mbH, PHOENIX CONTACT GmbH & Co. KG, Janson & Even GmbH and Lego. All the members share a common cause and interest, to develop and establish this new process of AM as an accepted standard manufacturing process. This process differs substantially from other known manufacturing processes; here the part will be manufactured layer for layer instead of removing material. In this special arrangement between the University of Paderborn and the State of North Rhine Westphalia the State will invest 5.5 million € if industry partners also commit (project bound) to invest the same amount. Thus DMRC can have at its disposal up to 11 million € (till 2016) which can be used for research as well as product and process development. Till now eight professors and 22 doctoral candidates are actively involved in interdisciplinary and cross process research projects which are application and industry oriented. The research projects can be broadly classified into technology specific fundamental research and cross sector themes. The projects are linked to the three AM processes available at DMRC, Laser Sintering, Laser Melting and Fused Deposition Modeling. The knowledge gained here is indispensable for the successful applications in AM as the manufacturing principles here are different than in conventional manufacturing. Complete new avenues can be exploited by the designer if he knows the new possibilities available to him. At DMRC new design rules are being developed along with quality management and cost analysis. The future perspective of AM is also looked into to develop future markets and applications with partners. On the basis of this analysis strategies will be issued to the research community in the area of AM. This unique constellation at the University of Paderborn, with the state of Nord Rhine Westphalia and the industry partners helps to bundle the available skills and resources for the common cause of developing AM.
