3D printing software specialist Dassault Systèmes and industrial engineering firm Sogeti High Tech plan to form an additive manufacturing (AM) partnership.

The partnership would investigate ways to use AM in industrial applications for aerospace and defense, energy, transportation and other industries.

Sogeti High Tech would make use of Dassault Systèmes’ 3dexperience platform for AM which covers end-to-end process of upstream material design, downstream manufacturing processes and testing to provide a single flow of data for engineering parameters. These parameters include material science, functional specification, generative design, 3D printing optimization, multi-robotic production and certification.

‘Our forthcoming alliance partnership with Dassault Systèmes will bring a disruptive offering of technologies, knowledge, methods, processes, support, services and workforce training to business needs in the digital manufacturing era,’ claimed Jean-Pierre Petit, CEO, Sogeti High Tech.

‘Digital experience is at the core of the transformation in manufacturing in which companies are taking advantage of emerging machines, materials and processes, and freeing themselves of traditional manufacturing constraints,’ added Laurent Blanchard, executive vice president, Dassault Systèmes.
