Additive Assurance, a spin-out of Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, has launched its beta quality assurance solution and officially announced a global partner network.

The Additive Assurance product, reported to be suitable for any Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) AM system, consists of an externally mounted sensor package connected to software driven by machine learning algorithms. It provides quality assurance information in real-time. The company states that the product is currently in testing with Foundation Partners from the energy, defence, and aerospace sectors.

“The underlying technology came out of a research project between Monash University and the Defence Science and Technology Group in Australia,” stated Marten Jurg, co-founder and CEO of Additive Assurance. “After thorough testing with Foundation Partners we are excited to officially launch our Global Partner Network and we welcome discussions with metal AM users working through qualification programmes.”

The Additive Assurance team explained that they have been working closely with a network of industrial users frustrated with a lack of detailed build quality information for L-PBF systems in the AM industry. The team started exploring in-process monitoring approaches and developed a solution that not only solved their problem, but addressed industry-wide challenges around qualification.

Once a build is complete, a full set of quality assurance reports are generated, including detailed 2D and 3D defect maps and all critical process information, allowing full compliance and traceability in the supply chain. All data is stored on a managed cloud solution that allows machines across multiple locations to be tracked simultaneously. An option for an on-premise server is also available.

Additive Assurance is now seeking expressions of interest from interested parties in the defence, aerospace and energy sectors to join their partner network prior to the full product release in 2020.
