AeroEdge Co, Ltd, based in Tochigi, Japan, and 3DOS™, Inc, located in Hermosa Beach, California, USA, have announced plans to introduce a decentralised Additive Manufacturing platform for the Japanese market.

Under the agreement, the partners will implement a software system, developed by 3DOS, that will allow users to order parts on demand, monitor AM machines in real-time and protect confidential information with digital technologies.

AeroEdge recognises one of the key benefits of Additive Manufacturing is that it can contribute to the creation of on-demand manufacturing and a low-cost supply chain. The company offers a range of engineering services, including AM prototype production and consulting. It has both electron-beam powder bed fusion (PBF-EB) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machines in-house.

3DOS has already proved its platform technology by working with leading American research universities such as MIT, Harvard, Duke, and government agencies like NASA. The software is reported to connect manufacturing supply and demand instantly, working towards the creation of a decentralised manufacturing network.

In this collaboration, AeroEdge, as a strategic partner with 3DOS, will utilise its network with other manufacturing partners and academic institutions in Japan, with the goal of further expanding the AM sector in the region.
