Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division recently announced that Hexagon has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire AMendate, a German-based start-up providing simulation software solutions that support the generation and optimization of designs for additive manufacturing. AMendate will join Hexagon’s MSC Software business, a global leader in computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation software and services.
With this acquisition, MSC is positioned to offer its customers a paradigm shift away from general purpose optimization technologies to an innovative, purpose-built software solution for additive manufacturing. Enabling the efficient production of highly complex components and providing customers with numerous benefits, from material-saving, weight reduction, and efficient, cost-effective production. AMendate’s technology eliminates the inefficient manual effort that significantly slows current workflows, allowing work steps to be completed in days that would otherwise take several weeks.
