1000 Kelvin, a US-German startup with operations in Berlin, Germany, and Los Angeles, California, USA, has partnered with Norway’s Fieldmade to provide automated manufacturing quality control to military frontlines. The partnership was announced by both companies at the Military Additive Manufacturing (MilAM) Summit & Technology Showcase in Tampa, Florida, which took place January 16-17, 2024.

1000 Kelvin first announced the commercial release of its AMAIZE platform at this year’s Formnext. AMAIZE aims to generate optimal Additive Manufacturing profiles using physics-informed AI technology for first-time-right Additive Manufacturing. Users upload a build file to the AMAIZE cloud, where the part is analysed and automatically corrected for thermo-mechanical issues by optimising the scan strategy and process parameters. This approach is intended to eradicate the need for expensive finite element simulation software and multiple physical iterations, saving materials, energy, and money.

Fieldmade has worked extensively with the Norwegian Armed Forces, as well as with energy companies, whilst Fieldnode, a spin-out, has collaborated with some of the world’s largest oil companies to create a digital inventory platform.

Jostein Olsen, Fieldmade’s CEO, shared, “Our vision is to make deployable 3D printing as easy as using a vending machine. The integration of 1000 Kelvin’s AMAIZE into our products is a significant step towards this goal.”

Omar Fergani, PhD, co-founder and CEO of 1000 Kelvin, commented, “By combining our strengths, we’re not just advancing technology; we’re providing solutions that can save time, costs, and in critical military scenarios, even lives.”
