The VARINEXPO3D Conference and Exhibition, organized by Econ’s long-term partner Varinex Kft., focused on 3D technologies, additive manufacturing, and digital transformation. The event also featured a presentation by Márton Bugár-Mészáros, Simulation Engineer at Econ Engineering, on Ansys’ simulation capabilities in the field of metal printing. In the exhibitor area, visitors could learn more about Ansys’ Discovery and Moldex3D engineering simulation platforms at the Econ booth.
The two-day VARINEXPO3D Tech Conference and Exhibition offered a unique meeting point for innovative technical professionals. The conference, held on 21-22 September at the Aquaworld Resort in Budapest, presented the challenges of Industry 4.0, digitalization and sustainability, innovation, and the application areas of 3D technologies and additive manufacturing. The conference focused on the automotive, defense, fashion, robotics, aerospace, aeronautics, health, and medical industries.
Econ at VARINEXPO3D
Participants heard more than 20 presentations on profitable 3D technologies, attended industry-specific workshops on various topics, and had the opportunity to network and have informal discussions. On behalf of Econ, Márton Bugár-Mészáros gave a presentation on Ansys Additive’s simulation capabilities in the field of metal printing, which was attended by approximately 80 participants.
The exhibition space featured not only the most advanced industrial 3D printers and additive manufacturing equipment but also 3D printed parts and tools and their applications, as well as more than a hundred different engineering polymers and metal materials adopted in industrial environments. Visitors to the Econ stand could watch a demo video of an aircraft’s flow simulation using Ansys software and could familiarize themselves with Ansys engineering simulation software’s Discovery product line, demonstrating the potential of rapid 3D printed prototyping.
With Ansys Discovery, it is possible to test the actual behavior of a product at the conceptual design phase, significantly shortening the product design process, whether it is mechanical, CFD, thermal conductivity, or electromagnetic testing. In addition to its user-friendly interface, it is highly versatile and offers unique insight into the behavior of a future product. Visitors to the stand were also introduced to the Moldex3D simulation software, which offers professional simulation solutions specifically designed for the plastic injection molding industry.
