With a track record over three decades long, AlphaSTAR’s advanced simulation and material modeling software is used around the globe in a variety of commercial and mission-critical defense applications. Its blue-chip customer roster includes leading manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, energy and consumer verticals. As Additive Manufacturing (AM) continues to displace traditional methods of production, AlphaSTAR’s Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) toolset is at the heart of this movement. AlphaSTAR technology links materials models with advanced multi-scale simulation technologies aimed at reducing part defects and improving overall part performance. This provides a roadmap to understanding anomalies prior to production and ensures AM parts meet all quality and performance requirements when built the first time. AlphaSTAR is becoming the de facto standard for AM simulation having adapted its software suite to new machines, alternative modalities, and a variety of materials.
Des – Diagnostic Engineering Solutions
DES – Diagnostic Engineering Solutions is a Spin-off of the Politecnico di Bari, specialised in experimental mechanics and structural diagnostics.
Its mission is the technological transfer from the University to the Industry of innovative solutions for structural diagnostics, through the use of non-destructive methods.
In particular, it develops innovative technologies for the structural analysis of components and the monitoring of processes, which are applied in R&D activities carried out in public and private laboratories and in the monitoring of production cycles and quality control.
Testing for defects and non-homogeneities in composite, plastic and metal components, quality control of fine welds, integrity checks of welded joints, evaluation of coating integrity, identification of fuel leaks, are just some of the applications developed by DES for leading companies in the aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, energy and higher education & research sectors.
DES excels in the application of thermal methods and has a partnership with TELEDYNE FLIR, the world’s leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art infrared cameras and thermographic systems.
