Additive Flow seeks to accelerate AM innovation with new optimisation software

February 26, 2020

Additive Flow, a software start-up based in London, UK, has announced its AM design optimisation software, FormFlow, a modular solution said to address many of the challenges of digital workflow necessitated by AM. FormFlow is multi-functional software with the capability to apply multiple user-defined parameters for simultaneous geometry, process parameter and material optimisation.

The dedicated, physics-driven algorithms within FormFlow are said to carry out all of the complex work involved in applying these parameters, and produce comprehensive and tangible results that deliver optimally performing parts cost effectively, sustainably and rapidly. The software is AM process and machine agnostic, with specialist solvers said to account for the unique properties of AM materials, and can be tailored to work with single- and/or multi-material designs. 

Additive Flow is currently working on a project consultancy basis with a range of companies from OEMs to SMEs, as well as AM ecosystem companies. This is because Additive Flow’s digital solutions are versatile and modular, and can be used across customised workflows with all of its multi-functionality, or it can be applied specifically to unlock particular bottlenecks in any given workflow to optimise cost, performance and sustainability outcomes. 

Additive Flow was founded by Alexander Pluke (CEO) and Charles Fried (CTO), in 2017. The company will open up FormFlow on license later this year.
