Intelligent Additive Order Management 💡💡 – November Newsletter

This month, we were incredibly proud to announce our new 3Diax Manufacturing Execution System.

Additive Manufacturing was hard enough without manual updates to track orders & prints. As the number of prints increases, it gets hard to stay on top of what’s printing, where, what the next steps and customizations are. Now we can help you.

The software provides all the tools needed to organize modern, scalable additive manufacturing operations.

It builds on many 3Diax modules; in particular our announced machine analytics module, which makes it possible to receive seamless updates from printers. This foundation allows for an order status to be automatically updated and provide all parts of operations – from sales to printer operators – with real-time information to deliver quality parts efficiently and reliably.

A customizable dashboard provides instant overview of the automatically updated status of orders.

Features include the ability to create and track orders through shipping, quote, identify key metrics (such as print time), create build trays, automatically update order status based on actual printer data, and track multiple locations at once. MES is available on- or off-premise and works on tablets, phones, and computers.

Exciting new expansions are in the works: automated traceability documentation, material tracking for metal powders, automatic serialization. MES is a tool that manages your shop floor, for you. What features would you like to see? Get in touch now and tell us.

Best, the Authentise Team

Fully Integrated Additive Manufacturing ➰ – October Newsletter

Those of you actually printing and building things; you know that making it happen isn’t just about one process or a single step.

That’s why one of our priorities has been integrating with other systems so we can support people getting stuff done rather than opening up many different programs for each stage. So we’re proud this month to have made real progress on that.

First, our integration with EOS printers went into production, further extending the reach of our Machine Analytics tools. That lets you monitor the status, utilization, failure rate and more of your entire production or prototyping facility, not specific to a single Machine Provider, as we told you last month. More transparency leads to better decisions, whether it’s in resource allocation or processes.

Authentise 3Diax Machine Analytics Schedule can tell you what is printing, where.

Integrating doesn’t stop with machines. We’ve just pushed our first integration with other software tools into production too: From now on, we can grab files from Materialise StreamicsTM, process them, and send information back to StreamicsTM. Our specific client wanted to benchmark internal vs. service provider costs without sharing IP. So we deployed our geometric search module, our internal quoting module, our external quoting module and our dashboarding module to give him a real-time benchmarking tool to help defend capital expense decisions and more. But now that this integration is live, you can take advantage of it too.

Of course, we’re integrating into large legacy systems. Those integrations come with significant security protocols attached, so every time we do another client integration we get more secure. Last month’s clients are all among the Global 2,000 top companies – so you can rest assured that our security has been tested, and tested again and that our engineers know exactly what it takes to integrate with your existing legacy systems, such as Single Sign-Ons.


Next up: Many more integrations! We’re thinking Zapier next, which would allow you to integrate our Machine Analytics into over 700 programs including ZohoCMS, Salesforce, Quickbooks and more. What do you want to integrate with? Tell us in reply!

Of course, there are new features coming out too, and next month we have a particularly big release ready to go out. You’ll hear all about it, but we’re also interested in the features you’d like to see more of. Recently our client conversations have revolved around 3 main interest areas, where process automation would be critical: Material Batch Control, Quality Assurance/Traceability Reporting, and Multi-site Print Management. Are they the ones that interest you too?

As always, contact us anytime! We’re going to be at FormNext in November – so if you are too, please let us know and we’ll make sure to meet. Just reply to this mail.

Authentise & Additive Show Strong @ IMTS

Additive exploded at IMTS and even got its own part separate side conference & exhibition. The main question from the audience remained the same: How to get from the prototyping stage to the production stage.

Completely speaks to our slogan since our first days in 2013. Authentise 3Diax platform gets larger and larger and the modular open API concept allows companies to seamless exchange of information between the modules and current IT systems and machines to augment well established processes rather than replace them. Our open API acts as a glue in between your applications.

Clients

These are just the first steps. Each of our clients has a roadmap of automation challenges for our modules to solve. Arrange a time to discuss how we can help your company grow Additive Manufacturing to production scale.


 MODULES

Every time we extend the platform, we open them up to everybody. That’s right, you too! Here are the important updates for this news cycle:

Of course, you could also try one of our existing services including slicingstreaming, or vision.

Now, do yourself a favour and sign up for our newsletter below to get it delivered into your inbox every month:


Meet us! – Upcoming Events

See our upcoming events here: http://authentise.com/news/events/

We’ve always been around events to tap the pulse of the industry and meet with clients. Recently, we’ve taken a more prominent role in them. Recently we’ve spoken at a GE Ventures at the Field Museum in Chicago while IMTS was going on, at 3D Printing Politics, at Huawei in China, at Singularity University, at Designer of Things, among others.

We’ve not done a terribly good job of keeping you all up to date with future events, or recapping our experiences at them. That’s all about to change. We have a dozen or so events coming up and plan to list them all here: http://authentise.com/news/events/. Maybe we’ll even publish some of our decks etc.

We’ve made a start with the October events, but there’s more to come. So keep on checking back, and let us know if you’re going to be in the area.
