Link3D has launched its quality management system that has been created to allow end-to-end quality traceability. This is expected to happen all through the additive production workflows.
The firm launched its new software tools during the Formnext show. According to the firm, the QMS platform will assist additive users to enhance quality. It will also help them to lower costs and achieve customer compliance needs.
This is by getting visibility into their workflows through a digital thread. Also, manufacturers will have the ability to know and handle procedure failures and defects.
Link3D understands the digital fiber approved by QMS will assist users to understand their workflows better. It will also assist them to complete procedure improvements for different AM modalities.
Data can be captured all through the supply chain. This will allow clients to monitor the lineage of a part from material acquisition to parts design. It will also allow clients to monitor build preparation, post-processing, final quality inspection, and production.
The QMS includes machine learning, data visualization, and statistical procedure. The inbuilt feedback loops assist to make sure constant enhancement by flagging sections of concern for engineers to examine. Risk evaluation and mitigation may as well be created and data may be monitored automatically.
“Quality Management System has been a missing piece of the additive manufacturing puzzle,” said Link3D CEO, Shane Fox, “We’ve been working with machine manufacturers, material suppliers and industry leaders in highly regulated sectors such as aerospace, automotive and medical.
Part repeatability for compliance is ongoing challenge organizations face. As quality standards mature alongside materials and machines, Link3D will help businesses ensure repeatability of their qualified workflows, including ‘machine, material, and part qualification programs powered by data management.” She added.
“As part of Link3D’s strategy, we want to enable businesses to adopt scalable AM workflows to support their infrastructure as they fulfil their AM initiatives from R&D to series production,” explained Vishal Singh, CTO of Link3D.
“Businesses looking to scale additive manufacturing can look forward to built-in quality feedback loops at micro and macro levels, enabling continuous improvement, and facilitating and maintaining part qualification programs in a systematic way built on top of unified data architecture.”
Link3D lately extended its collaboration with EOS, a global German 3D printer OEM. Running in a shared device connectivity program, the two associates are improving Link3D’s Production Scheduling software. This is so as to help rationalize the additive manufacturing procedure.
