AMFG, formerly RP Platform, London, UK, a provider of automation software for Additive Manufacturing, has launched a new software platform which uses artificial intelligence (AI) to automate AM production. According to the company, the new software will help OEMs to tackle what it states are two of the primary barriers to widescale industrial adoption of AM technology – the manual and unscalable nature of AM production processes.

The automation software will reportedly provide complete automation for the AM process, including scheduling, printability analyses, post-processing and machine analytics.

“Our vision is for our software solution to enable autonomous Additive Manufacturing,” explained Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG. “While 3D printing has the potential to transform manufacturing, we’ve seen the lack of a scalable production process as a key barrier. Our software closes this gap by incorporating machine learning algorithms to provide an end-to-end solution for the 3D printing manufacturing process.”

AMFG states that its automation software solutions are used by customers in over thirty countries, including leaders in the automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and education sectors. Its new software solution also aims to provide greater traceability and efficiency to AM production, and offers custom ERP and PLM integrations.

“We want to help companies create a seamless 3D printing workflow so that they can produce more parts with greater visibility and less effort,” added Karimi. “We have more exciting releases to our software over the coming months that will further enhance our production automation capabilities. Ultimately, we’re creating a truly autonomous manufacturing process for industrial 3D printing. For us, this means taking manufacturing to a new era of digitalised production. The launch of our new software, as well as our company rebrand, fully reflects this vision going forward.”
