Valuechain, a UK-based manufacturing software developer, has launched a new version of its production control software, DNAam, designed for Additive Manufacturers. The company stated that DNAam integrates complex workflow and operations, such as build-planning, comprehensive inventory management and the critical chemical analysis of powder batches and test pieces.

According to Valuechain, while the use of Additive Manufacturing has seen widespread growth in recent years, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have so-far failed to keep up with the technology’s specialised demands. Tom Dawes, Valuechain CEO, stated, “DNAam addresses a specific problem that has emerged since the increased need for Additive Manufacturing.”

Valuechain has successfully piloted its DNAam production control software with Zenith Tecnica, an aircraft manufacturer and AM user based in Auckland, New Zealand, and reported that it now plans to roll out the system to more companies, worldwide.

“We are always innovating new solutions that bring real tangible benefits to the manufacturing industry,” continued Dawes, “and we’re proud that DNAam does exactly that.”
