As part of the Phillips Corporation’s redefinition of the US Department of Defense’s logistics strategy with the use of Additive Manufacturing, 3YOURMIND’s suite of software solutions has been selected to enhance AM part identification. The two US-based companies have collaborated on analysing the feasibility of AM to increase combat readiness since November 2019.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with 3YOURMIND,” stated Tim McClanahan, Business Development Manager, Phillips Corporation. “Our AM Innovation Center includes the most advanced hardware, software and services on the market. Adding 3YOURMIND software enables us to provide many more proactive solutions to our military partners for leveraging the full potential of their Additive Manufacturing assets.”

Time is critical for troops in the field who face emergency situations daily and require immediate answers to complex issues. Utilising 3YOURMIND software enables digitisation of the warehouse, as well as the identification of AM-ready spare parts and their manufacture on-demand at global forward operating bases.

3YOURMIND’s software platform analyses Computer Aided Design (CAD) data and develops a library of files categorised by technical and economic metrics. These metrics are used to determine if a part is suitable for AM and what type of time or cost advantages can be applied.

Through a consultative approach (the PREP process), 3YOURMIND will provide training and support for Phillips Corporation in order to support the goal of modernising the US DoD’s goal of modernisation.

“3YOURMIND and Phillips Corporation share a similar vision to reimagine the supply chain,” commented William Cuervo, Senior Business Development Manager USA at 3YOURMIND. “Our Agile PLM software, equipped with a sophisticated part identifier tool, is a secure program that provides data transparency and streamlined communications that enable defence organisations to take decisive actions.”
