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”
