Renishaw and Identify3D have announced a collaboration to offer an end-to-end, secure digital manufacturing process. Identify3D, based in San Francisco, USA, is a provider of software for the digital supply chain and will now provide data protection, coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing, on Renishaw AM systems.

By securing all digital data in the engineering phase, Identify3D’s technology is expected to enable users of Renishaw systems protect their digital intellectual property (IP), enforce production rules and provide traceability in the digital supply chain at the industry’s highest standard.

“Renishaw understands how important it is to have an efficient and reliable control of data flow all the way to its machines,” explained Stephan Thomas, Chief Strategy Officer at Identify3D. “We are pleased that Renishaw, one of the world’s leading engineering and scientific technology companies, has selected Identify3D as a strategic partner to provide such a solution to the market place – from design to distribution and production.”

Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centres at Renishaw, added, “Industrialising Additive Manufacturing requires that we manage and control a complex chain of processes to deliver consistent, traceable and qualified parts. Secure transmission and controlled use of digital IP is critical to enable agile Industry 4.0 supply chains. We believe that Identify3D brings a strong and necessary solution that will increase these controls, minimising variation to improve and protect AM production quality.”

The two companies are currently working together on pilot projects for several manufacturing customers.
