Assembrix’s cloud-based Virtual Manufacturing Space platform (VMS) aims to simplify and secure the entire Additive Manufacturing process, from the initial part model to the verified physical part, enabling a simpler transition to industrialisation. Nanyang Polytechnic’s Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre is already making use of this technology, allowing users to gain hands-on experience developing solutions for the industry.
“By leveraging secure cloud-based solutions, more manufacturing companies can explore remote arrangements while upholding the highest quality control standards,” stated Zaw Hlwan Moe, Manager at Nanyang Polytechnic’s School of Engineering. “Technological advancements like these can significantly boost productivity in the Additive Manufacturing industry.”
Nicolas Lemaire, Software Product Manager at SLM Solutions, added, “The productive partnership between SLM Solutions and Assembrix empowers customers to fully leverage secure remote printing processes, supporting their distributed manufacturing strategies. It enhances SLM Solutions’ growing software and service solution portfolio, establishing itself as the leading Additive Manufacturing technology in the market.”
