Rosswag Engineering, Pfinztal, Germany, reports it is currently developing a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing process and parameter marketplace, expected to make the benefits of more productive parameter sets and new materials more readily available.

Based on many years of experience with the production of more than 60,000 metal AM components and the in-house qualification of over forty PBF-LB materials, Rosswag started the AddiMap project together with NuCOS, a full-stack software company, in 2020. The aim is to develop a digital B2B platform to provide all materials, parameters, data and services for the accelerated industrialisation and democratisation of metal Additive Manufacturing.

The first service of the AddiMap platform will be a marketplace for trading reliable process parameters and material data to reduce the inefficiencies in PBF-LB Additive Manufacturing process parameter development projects. Instead of validating the quality and productivity of optimised parameter sets over several weeks with their own test series and analyses, the results can be traded on the marketplace to instantly take advantage of the technology. This is expected to enable customers with a small investment to increase the productivity of their Additive Manufacturing machines by more than 80% compared to generic standard parameters. For data providers with a focus on R&D activities, the marketplace is expected to create new business models through the sales of otherwise unused parameters and data.

The initial goal of the marketplace is to avoid occupying AM machine capacity to resolve issues that have already been resolved multiple times, so that market participants can focus on new, value-added applications for the continued growth of PBF-LB technology. If those in the community are willing to trade data, all market participants will benefit states the company.
