Dyndrite Corporation, Seattle, Washington, USA, has been selected by AFWERX for an AFVentures Open Topic 24.D Phase I cohort award. The Dyndrite selection will focus on defining and commercialising a Software Defined Process Qualification (SDP Qual) Process for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) to address the most pressing metal Additive Manufacturing qualification and/or requalification challenges in the US Department of the Air Force (DAF).

A rigorous qualification process is essential to ensure that all standards for quality and safety are consistently met. Dyndrite addresses these needs by incorporating scriptable workflows into qualification and requalification, automating the entire build layout process. Automating laborious manual tasks like part import, positioning, supporting, toolpath parameters, laser parameter, labelling, traceable reporting is expected to contribute significantly to reductions in the time and resources associated with qualification.

Dyndrite’s new SDP Qual approach enables users to adapt to technological advancements and shifts in the supply chain without undergoing costly, time-consuming, manual, qualification processes. Using Dyndrite’s solution, the Air Force anticipates saving considerable time and costs by rapidly conducting efficient qualification workflows to ensure its AM production is repeatable and predictable.

“We are proud of the recognition by AFRL of the value of Dyndrite’s modern approach to additive manufacturing qualification,” said Steve Walton, Head of Product for Dyndrite. “Our agile software-based process is a core ingredient to making AM a reliable, repeatable and cost effective serial production process.”
