Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) is set to disrupt manufacturing as we know it. It is an engineering solution that spans across simulation disciplines and goes one step further in helping to tackle the challenges OEMs face in producing the ‘perfect’ part, whether that be time, cost or availability of data. It blurs the boundaries between materials engineering, design and manufacturing processes, optimising components through the integration of manufacturing, materials and performance prediction.
We are contributing with our expertise to improve the accuracy and scope of ICME in modelling metals’ microstructure – a largely unexplored area for commercial manufacturing until now – and have partnered wih e-Xstream to support the industry’s first microstructure modelling for metals.
