HYBRID Software, a global software solutions provider for the manufacturing industry based in Merelbelke, Belgium, has introduced CLOUDFLOW Maker, an enterprise workflow solution for industrial-scale Binder Jetting. Built on OPC-UA standards, the software guarantees interaction with all connected devices and machines. Furthermore, being fully API-based, it provides simple connections with all other systems, acknowledging the fact that a one-size-fits-all solution does not exist.

Kris Binon, AM Business Unit development manager, commented, “Having decades of experience in jetting the right drop on the right spot is just one thing: industrial printing software is about the ability to provide fast, secure and modular solutions, as well as customer-oriented support, maintenance and upgrades.”

To elevate technical standards, HYBRID Software can leverage two other resources. Firstly, its parent organisation, HYBRID Software Group, houses Meteor Inkjet, a leading provider of printhead electronics for Binder Jetting. By integrating its hardware with HYBRID’s software, a direct and secure data stream from CAD up to printhead is ensured. Meteor’s proficiency in drop formation, binder delivery systems, and waveforms, etc., is unparalleled in the AM industry.

Secondly, HYBRID Software’s experienced engineering team, with over twelve years of successful product development in industrial Additive Manufacturing applications such as labels and packaging, will apply their experience to CLOUDFLOW Maker.

Mike Rottenborn, CEO of HYBRID Software Group, shared, “The 3D printing industry is at a crossroads: as printer producers and users turn towards industrialisation, they need software to optimise and streamline their workflows for high-volume production. To achieve this, HYBRID is leveraging our expertise in enterprise workflow for printing to develop value-adding functionalities for Binder and Material Jetting.”
