EOS integrates Hyperganic AI-powered Algorithmic Engineering software to its Additive Manufacturing Solutions

A partnership that introduces another paradigm shift in AM, that will elevate the design and performance of space propulsion components

 As part of an exclusive partnership, industrial 3D printing company EOS will integrate Hyperganic Core, an AI-powered Algorithmic Engineering software platform developed by Hyperganic to its portfolio of AM solutions. The announcement follows the recent acquisition of DirectFEM by Hyperganic.

Dr. Hans J. Langer, founder of EOS, said: “As a constant and pioneering innovator, we are now partnering with Hyperganic to introduce another paradigm shift in AM. It is a design shift that expands solution spaces as well as performance levels, at the same time revolutionizing the design process for AM, making AM a truly digital approach from software-generated Algorithmic Engineering to digital manufacturing.”


Revolutionizing freedom of design for AM

For centuries, humans have used drawing boards to translate ideas onto paper before CAD systems changed the game. Yet, even small design changes still require laborious remodeling work. Since every iteration cost time and money, CAD-based approaches compel engineers to design conservatively instead of pushing the limits.


At the same time, freedom of design has always been one of the guiding principles of AM, enabling part structures and applications that were impossible to manufacture using traditional production processes. The partnership between EOS and Hyperganic now takes this approach to the next level.  


A radical example is the aerospike rocket engine designed by Hyperganic and manufactured by EOS and AMCM, an EOS group company. The aerospike engine, classically considered a tremendous engineering and manufacturing challenge, was built from the ground up using an algorithmic model by Hyperganic. One of the hundreds of designs produced by Hyperganic in just days was printed on EOS M 400-4. The highly complex part was printed with zero support using the EOS NickelAlloy IN718 process.


Consequently, the aerospike engine was automatically reengineered for  production on a substantially larger AMCM M 4K system from AMCM in EOS CopperAlloy CuCrZr. The combination of this level of design complexity with the capability to print in this size in a reliable manner, will drive the next innovations in space propulsion.


Lin Kayser, CEO of Hyperganic, said: “We are very excited to partner with EOS in this industry-first collaboration. Algorithmic Engineering translates ideas into designs in minutes, with the engineer setting the rules and the computer generating the results. Specifically, the field of space propulsion which still uses very conservative designs, will benefit greatly from Algorithmic Engineering.”
