AMFG unveils new Supplier Integration Network for Additive Manufacturing

September 26, 2018

AMFG, London, UK, a provider of automation software for Additive Manufacturing, debuted its Supplier Integration Network at the TCT Show in Birmingham, UK, September 25-27, 2018. The new software feature is designed to automate production across the manufacturing supply chain by enabling manufacturers to coordinate and engage with their existing network of partners and suppliers through the platform.

The Supplier Integration Network is the latest addition to AMFG’s software platform, which provides automated production and post-production management tools for AM. Following the launch of its AI-driven platform earlier this year, AMFG believes the new Supplier Integration Network feature will further enhance its offerings for manufacturers seeking to invest in AM.

Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG, stated, “Automating AM production along the supply chain is a key need for the countless companies we’ve spoken with. Manufacturers want to be able to automate their Additive Manufacturing supply chain without having to deal with endless back and forth emailing or phone calls. Our Supplier Integration Network answers this need and drives efficiency by giving companies a direct way to maintain and engage with a distributed network of suppliers across locations.”

For example, using the Supplier Integration Network, manufacturers can reportedly easily outsource production or post-processing activities to their existing suppliers. In this instance, if a company does not have a certain post-processing capability in-house, the project can be automatically outsourced to an external partner directly through the platform — maintaining a streamlined, centralised workflow. Likewise, service bureaus and suppliers using AMFG can use the feature to provide OEMs access to their services with greater ease.

“Manufacturers are looking to scale their additive production effectively and we’re committed to giving them the software infrastructure to do so,” added Karimi. “Facilitating greater connectivity between all players along the supply chain through automation is a large part of this.”

“Our vision with the Supplier Integration Network is also to help companies achieve truly distributed manufacturing by providing a greater level of connectivity along the supply chain through our platform,” he concluded. “Of course, the Supplier Integration Network feature is designed to be used in conjunction with our other AM solutions, from project management to production planning and more.”
