GE Additive releases Arcam EBM Build Performance Analyser

November 19, 2019

 

GE Additive has announced the launch of Arcam EBM Build Performance Analyser, a new suite of machine health data analytics. The software system will be released from December 2019 to Arcam EBM Q10 and Q10plus customers, then from Q1 2020 to Arcam EBM Q20 and Arcam EBM Q20plus customers and then to Arcam EBM Spectra customers through Q2 and Q3 2020.

Developed by Arcam’s software team in Sweden, with a team from GE Global Research Center in India, data is collected during the printing process from in-situ machine sensors, then analysed using intelligent algorithms to provide users with a holistic view of process and machine health. The software can run on both the machine itself or on a user’s laptop.

In addition to more visual user interface, featuring health indicators such as expected versus actual values, where needed operators are able to receive 32 root cause analyses with recommendations for any corrective actions, as well all warnings for non-critical events.

The team examined more than 350 log files to identify statistical clustering and applied machine learning, based on a combination or parameters to retrieve machine behaviour. The Arcam Build Performance Analyser identifies key parameter trend plotting and enhanced report generation and provides customers with meaningful, predictive data and information to inform decision making and future design and development.

“Being able to access and then make decisions based on real-time data analysis is another way we put our users in control of their systems. Whether they operate a single machine or entire fleets of our systems, the ability able to receive, interpret and use data smartly can save both time and cost,” stated Karl Lindblom, general manager, Arcam EBM.
