- Certificate of Attendance
Acquire the basics of load-compliant component definition, both in terms of shape and material selection. You will then be able to analyze existing products with regard to optimization potential and to develop load-optimized components. You will gain insight into target properties, systematic material selection and computer-aided shape optimization.
▶ Methods for a load-compatible initial shape
▶ Systematic material selection and computer-aided shape optimization
▶ Methods and tools for load-compatible generation and optimization of component
designs in practice
▶ Direct, independent practical application of workshop contents on the computer
Group of Participants
You are a mechanical engineer, product manager, developer or product designer in the fields of mechanical engineering, mechatronics, product development or product design.
The main potential for load-compatible component design is increased sustainability through reduced use of materials, cost and weight savings, and improved performance of mechanically stressed components. The essential component parameters are often determined purely on the basis of experience, since the ideal shape is complexly related to the utilized materials. Yet the addressing of technically and economically optimized components must take place differently!
During this one-day seminar, several methods for systematic product innovation will be presented: from requirement determination to design. For every step in the identification of technical solutions, the corresponding tools are not only explained theoretically, but also demonstrated using product examples.
