Industrializing Additive Manufacturing – Presented by Omar Fergani, Siemens Industry Software B.V, at the AM Integrated Factory Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The presentation will demonstrate how Siemens industrializes additive manufacturing; how we design and produce useful parts at scale.
The session will highlight the methodologies and the software tools that we use to turn next generation design ideas (in this case from Bugatti and Siemens Power and Gas) into commercial products.

Continuous AM for production – Presented by Jeroen Smeltink, AMSYSTEMS – TNO

Continuous AM for production – Presented by Jeroen Smeltink, AMSYSTEMS – TNO, at the AM Integrated Factory Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

Since its inception Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been the promise for a paradigm shift in production technology and processes. Moving from prototyping towards mass customization and printing on demand, the AM-process now needs to make a further leap. By continuous AM the productivity can be increased and as a result the cost for the production can be decreased.

Scaling up 3D printing production with automated post-processing – Presented by Stefan Rink, CEO, AM-Flow, at the AM Integrated Factory Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

With increasing production volumes, the 3D printing supply-chain must adapt. Traditional supply-chain solutions are not always suitable, as 3D printing enables the cost-effective production of complex geometries in small batch-sizes (High Mix, High Volume).

Bottle-necks in scaling up production, are the identification, sorting, transport and packaging processes. These processes are currently done manually and the cost scale linearly with production capacity.

AM-Flow solves a critical step by fully automating these processes, by using proven methods from traditional manufacturing and advanced methods, such as machine vision.

AM-Flow enables the next step in industrial polymer 3D printing, towards lean six sigma en Quick Response Manufacturing. Continue reading “Scaling up 3D printing production with automated post-processing – Presented by Stefan Rink, AM-Flow”
