1000 Kelvin, a startup based in Berlin, Germany, and Los Angeles, California, USA, announced the full commercial availability of its AI-driven software AMAIZE at Formnext 2023. The company also revealed its initial integrations with commercial AM machine manufacturers like EOS and customers, including a rocket launch provider based in California.

Omar Fergani, PhD, co-founder and CEO of 1000 Kelvin, stated, “The manufacturing and production sector accounts for one-fifth of global carbon emissions and 54% of the world’s energy usage. 3D printing has the unique ability to address these issues, but not until it works consistently. By improving the efficiency and reducing the waste associated with 3D printing, while making the technology easier to use, AMAIZE contributes to a more sustainable future.”

AMAIZE aims to generate optimal Additive Manufacturing recipes 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.

1000 Kelvin has successfully integrated the cloud-native solution, AMAIZE, with numerous machine OEMs. This integration facilitates next-generation AI-software and computer infrastructure for Additive Manufacturing. Following the successful conclusion of its early adoption programme, AMAIZE has been adopted by companies in the energy, aerospace, and contract manufacturing industries.

One real-world example is when a California-based rocket launch provider faced considerable challenges with Additive Manufacturing of a critical part. These difficulties arose from build failure due to overheating and substantial reduction of support structures, leading to inefficiencies and delays.

Utilising AMAIZE, the company could digitally find solutions to thermal management issues. This resulted in a successfully additively manufactured part with enhanced surface quality and performance. Importantly, AMAIZE allowed the customer to decrease support structures by over 80%, leading to a reduction of more than 30% in the overall cost per part, factoring in both saved materials and post-processing costs. This case study illustrates how AMAIZE’s emphasis on addressing the root cause – thermal management – can notably speed up time to market.

1000 Kelvin has secured $3 million in funding to date. This has enabled it to expand beyond Europe and establish a presence in Los Angeles, California, USA, to serve its clients in the aerospace and defence industry.
