Mobile web app extends the Digital Thread into Post-Processing

Philadelphia, PA, 28 March 2019 – Authentise (www.authentise.com), the leader in data-driven workflow tools for additive manufacturing, has released a mobile web application for its users. With this tool, Authentise extends its digital thread from the printers, data of which it has already integrated, to every post processing step.

The app uses scans of QR codes implanted on travelers to help operators move parts through manual post processing stages such as powder or support removal, inspection, testing and more. This makes it easier for operators to track parts in progress, which in turn allows managers to see order progress and increases detail on traceability report for customers. The data these actions generate can also be used in Authentise’s Machine Learning algorithms to improve time estimates, quality predictions and more.

“Despite the fact that additive devices are nearly entirely digital, the entire process is far from it,” says Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “Our software already retrieves data from more additive devices than anybody else, as well as some post processing tools, but that’s not enough. Manual process steps are tedious enough for operators; reporting their progress shouldn’t be. By releasing this app, we’re simply doing what we always do; focus on making the life of the operator easier. The fact that we’re using the data generated to add further value is just added bonus.”

The App will be available as a trial release in the Google Play store next week or via the web. In addition, Authentise released a minimalist traveler that allows additive manufacturing facilities to start the process of going completely paperless. Additional functionality will be released in the coming weeks, including the ability to add attachments such as images and notes to each production step, and the ability for operators with the right permissions to jump and undo process steps.

Authentise will be present at AMUG, Booth 37, to demonstrate its workflow tool and app.

Rapid+TCT – Authentise Summary (Authentise Weekly News-In-Review – Week 70)

Last week we attended the RAPID+TCT event in Fort Worth, Texas. We were very excited to present our findings on putting Machine Learning to productive uses in additive (slides are here, video coming shortly). During our stay there, we got to see a host of new 3D printers being announced, as well as new, intriguing AM techniques. The list of worthy news would be way too long, so here’s a couple pieces that stood out.

GE Additive unveils Arcam EBM Spectra H machine at RAPID + TCT

GE Additive today unveiled the Arcam EBM Spectra H, a new metal additive manufacturing system designed to handle high heat and crack prone materials. The Arcam EBM Spectra H complements the company’s existing electron beam melting systems.

MELD Manufacturing Corporation Awarded RAPID + TCT Innovation Award For Patented MELD Technology

On Thursday, April 26, 2018, MELD Manufacturing Corporation was selected from the more than 300 exhibitors at RAPID + TCT 2018 as the recipient of the Innovation Award. MELD is a unique process for additive manufacturing that avoids melting the metal, thereby eliminating the weaknesses and other issues associated with melt-based processes. MELD’s open-atmosphere operation and scalable equipment also make it more efficient and capable of making larger parts than similar processes. In addition to additive manufacturing, MELD can be used to repair, coat, and join a wide range of materials, including some metals that cannot be welded with traditional processes.
