Software-as-a-service (SaaS) company Ai Build, London, UK, has released AiSync, a cloud-based platform which is said to enable its users to automate the Additive Manufacturing process from plan to build, reputedly improving speed, scalability and application range. The platform replaces manual coding with visual programming in an effort to simplify toolpath generation.
Ai Build state states that, currently, it has Tier 1 clients which operate in the aerospace, automotive, construction, marine and energy verticals, with real-world use cases including manifolds, composite moulds, spherical tanks, tooling, automotive grippers, naval propellers, and sandcasting.
According to the company, its users have reported that AiSync is able to build successful toolpaths 86% quicker, with failed builds decreased by 65%, parts threefold stronger with a 90% efficiency gain in overall build time.
The AiSync PRO platform utilises machine integration to stream manufacturing directions directly to a user’s machine, providing real-time control over the AM process. This option also enables fleet management, wherein multiple user groups can interact with machines in disparate locations for collaboration; automated QC, which sends users notifications about the quality of their build; and generates production reports.
The platform is suitable for metals, polymers and concrete.
