amsight GmbH, Hamburg, Germany, has announced the implementation of its quality and data management software in an exclusive pilot programme. The software is intended to reduce costs and effort for quality and data management, as well as for process optimisation.

The new software maps the entire Additive Manufacturing process chain, from powder handling and mixing to the finished component, in a digital twin. Based on this data, it is possible to optimise the entire process by considering the interaction between different process steps. A joint case study with Kegelmann Technik and the Fraunhofer IAPT demonstrated the effectiveness of the approach.

The software is reported to improve the Additive Manufacturing processes through three core functions: automated data management along the entire production chain, storage of relevant quality information in the full digital twin and comprehensive process optimisation in terms of cost savings and quality improvement. This integration enables seamless documentation from powder handling to the finished component and ensures detailed analytical capabilities through accurate representations of the processes and products. Furthermore, it promotes efficiency gains by minimising material waste while improving the product’s quality.

The software can be used in production for quality-assured manufacturing as well as for process and material development. The participants in the pilot programme include Kegelmann Technik GmbH and INPECA GmbH, as well as Fraunhofer IAPT, Fraunhofer IPA and Fraunhofer IPT, which used the software in various research projects to carry out analyses for better process understanding.

“The amsight software helps us to better understand our 3D printing processes, improve our component quality, and reduce our quality assurance costs,” shared Markus Albrecht, Team Leader Additive Manufacturing at Kegelmann Technik GmbH.

Maximilian Kluge, Head of Department at Fraunhofer IAPT, added, “In our projects, we generate a lot of valuable data, the potential of which we have not yet been able to fully exploit. By centrally storing and easily accessing all experimental data in the amsight software, we will change this. We will be able to deliver optimal research results to our project partners even faster in the future.”

“We will continuously improve our software with the goal of offering the leading solution in the field of quality and data management in industrial Additive Manufacturing. The start of the pilot programme is an important milestone in this regard,” Dr-Ing Tim Wischeropp, co-founder and CEO of amsight GmbH commented.

“With our software, we want to accelerate the further industrialisation of 3D printing and provide our customers with an intuitive tool that helps them get the maximum out of their 3D printing processes in terms of quality, cost and speed,” stated Peter Lindecke, co-founder and CCO of amsight GmbH.
