Key Decision Makers Meet in L.A. to Drive the Rapid Adoption of Additive Manufacturing

Now in its fourth year, Infocast’s Additive Innovation Summit (formerly Additive/Aerospace) returns once again to Los Angeles, hub of both “NewSpace” and “tradspace.” This year located at LAX in El Segundo – minutes from SpaceX, VirginGalactic, NorthrupGrumman, Boeing Space Systems, RocketLab, and LA Air Force Base/Space Missile Command. We again showcase a full day of OEM “Power Users”, supplemented by a half day around materials, processes, MRO, composites and funding/partnering strategies. Join us again as this transformational technology further penetrates aviation, space and other verticals!

AlphaSTAR Corporation is a leading engineering services and software company that provides innovative physics-based simulation technologies for structural modeling and analysis of advanced composite structures in the aerospace, automotive, defense, and energy industries worldwide. As a solution provider, AlphaSTAR partners with Altair, ANSYS, MSC Software, DS Simulia, and LSTC. AlphaSTAR‘s simulation software, GENOA,  augments traditional FE Solvers (NASTRAN, ABAQUS, ANSYS, and others) to extend their capabilities to multi-scale analysis for the determination of failure, damages, strength, and life thereby enabling engineers to assess where, when, why, and how failure occurs.

AlphaSTAR is a recipient of the 2015 R&D 100 award for simulation of additive manufacturing with its product GENOA 3D which accurately predicts deflection, residual stress, damage initiation and crack growth formation. It also visualizes damages in the printed structure and traces it directly to 3D printing variables (deposition speed, bead width, overall path, and other variables).
