Towards a guideline for quality assured 3D Printed spare parts – Presented by Onno Ponfoort, Berenschot

Onno Ponfoort

Onno Ponfoort, Berenschot, will speak at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Many industrial sectors require quality assurance and certification for parts to be used. Additive manufacturing holds the promise to allow customization of the design of parts, to meet case specific demands. But certification of each individual part is a time consuming and costly operation. This is an entrance hurdle for many ‘standards controlled’ industries.

Accelerating Additive Manufacturing with process automation and integration – Presented by Harry Kleijnen, Additive Industries

Harry Kleijnen

Harry Kleijnen, Additive Industries will speak at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Todays end to end additive manufacturing production processes are characterized by many separated process steps requiring intensive manual labour and complex planning processes.

For series production of parts this way of working will be too costly and is prone to errors jeopardizing overall equipment efficiency. In his presentation Harry Kleijnen will elaborate on Additive Industries vision and solutions for integrated and automated additive manufacturing.

Digitalisation offers the keys of Additive manufacturing inside of the Industry 4.0 eco-system – Presented by Manuel Michiels, Materialise

Manuel Michiels

Digitalisation offers the keys of Additive manufacturing inside of the Industry 4.0 eco-system – Presented by Manuel Michiels, Materialise, at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Driven by an increased demand for process control, traceability, combined with high labor costs: the digitalization of the manufacturing industry is happening on a rapid pace. A little disconnected from the ‘make’ industry, additive manufacturing has mainly been maturing in prototyping bureaus and research labs over the last 3 decades.

Today, more and more applications are found to bring this technology forward as a serial production method. Together with an annual growth rate of 25% (Wohlers) and an anticipated overall business impact of 100 Billion by 2025 (McKinsey), gives an indication that the technology is ready to be connected into the industry 4.0 eco system.

Firstly, this presentation will provide some insights on the various connections and integrations that need to happen to bring additive manufacturing forward into the digital eco-system of serial production. The increased level of interconnectivity is further accelerated by the standardization of many of the data flows.

Secondly, some exciting new workflows and opportunities will be presented that can be captured by digitalizing the AM manufacturing flow.

Interview

What drives you?

Analyzing market evolutions and identifying exciting new opportunities that will allow even more meaningful additive manufacturing applications to happen. I have a firm believe that open innovation between many industrial stakeholders is the best way forward to boost this industry.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?

Get an overview of the standardisations and integrations that are needed to run a 3D printing production line.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?

Short term: hybrid data formats, 3MF and MTConnect standard
Long term: Digital rights management and machine learning

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?

Short term: They will allow for end to end digital engineering and manufacturing flows with additive manufacturing.
Long term: They will allow further scaling of AM production into a distributed manufacturing network and further process control and optimisation.

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?

The industry will always balance between proprietary information and systems that will openly share information.

Interregional collaboration on 3D Printing – Presented by Coen de Graaf, Brabant Province

coen de graaf

Interregional collaboration on 3D Printing – Presented by Coen de Graaf, Brabant Province, at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

In this presentation we will inform you about our approach on interregional collaboration on 3D Printing. Europe’s innovative regions in manufacturing of high complex, low volume products and parts mainly for the high-tech industry we are facing the challenges and opportunities of digitization of the industry and new (production) technologies. In order to keep our position as innovative region we carry out an active strategy to speed up the uptake of new technologies and improve our competitiveness.

Additive manufacturing is a relatively new technology in addition to- or replacing “traditional” manufacturing processes. Before the industry, and in particular the SME’s are ready to implement any kind of this new technology, a lot of concerns and reluctance have to be overcome. Questions in relation to materials, design, pre- and post processing, automation, transfers, quality control and certification are to be addressed.

The Vanguard Initiative supports the collaboration between Research centers, fieldlabs, technical centers and companies on these topics. Fieldlabs are responsible for developing, industrialising and integrating Additive manufacturing technologies in the manufacturing industry and by nature are an important part of this eco-system. One objective of these Fieldlabs is to lower the thresholds for SME’s for uptaking new technologies like AM.

Interview

What drives you?

Europe faces an enormous challenge to increase its competitiveness. We need to modernize our industries rapidly. Regional collaboration in Europe is the best opportunity to speed up this modernization. Let’s contribute together!

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?

This presentation will give you an insight of the current activities and opportunities in the Vanguard Initiative for companies, institutes and regional clusters.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?

Clean, fast and flexible production saving energy and resources is vital to meet the societal challenges and at the same time increase our competitiveness. 3D printing is one of the solutions.

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?

We need to use new technologies like 3D Printing for reducing emissions and waste.

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?

There is still al lot of potential for SME’s in uptaking the 3D printing technologies. The Vanguard Initiative can help addressing the challenges SME’s face.

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, AM-Flow

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”
