Hexagon will officially be the parent company of AMendate, a Germany-based start-up that supplies simulation software solutions that support the generation and optimization of designs for additive manufacturing (AM).

For the specialist in sensor, software and autonomous solutions, AMendate relies in its ability to significantly decrease time-to-print for Additive Manufacturing.

The new member of the family will join MSC Software, another Hexagon company. MSC Software therefore strengthens its ability to enable the production of complex components. Indeed, AMendate’s technology eliminates the inefficient manual effort that significantly slows today’s workflows, allowing work steps to be completed in days that would otherwise take several weeks.

The AMendate acquisition directly addresses a major obstacle during design for companies shifting to additive manufacturing processes,” said Paolo Guglielmini, CEO, MSC Software. “It enhances our Smart Factory solutions by minimising time-to-print. We are proud to welcome AMendate to the MSC team, and we look forward to what we will accomplish together.”

With MSC being one of the most renowned developers for software solutions in CAE, we are incredibly excited to introduce our generative design technology to its customers,” said Dr. Thomas Reiher, CEO & Co-Founder, AMendate GmbH. “The integration of AMendate’s software in MSC’s established simulation technologies such as Simufact and MSC Apex will enable us to further enhance our technology even faster and make its benefits available to a global audience.”
