A partnership between ANSYS and the University of Pittsburgh will further additive-manufacturing (AM) education and research. As part of the collaboration, the university will open the 1,200-square-foot ANSYS Additive Manufacturing Research Laboratory in the Swanson School of Engineering. The lab will be equipped with some of the most advanced AM devices that utilize metals, alloys, polymers and other materials to laser print components for nearly every industry. The partnership will also support faculty and students conducting research with ANSYS and other industry partners. Lab workers will have access to the ANSYS portfolio, enabling them to explore, simulate and analyze solutions for stress and fatigue on critical components that go into products such as airplanes, cars and medical devices.
