Philadelphia-based Authentise and Addiguru (Metairie, LA) are combining their talents and experience in a collaboration that will integrate in-process monitoring into additive manufacturing workflows with the extension of their Authentise Manufacturing Execution System (AMES).
Combining artificial intelligence with workflow software, the result is real-time action, enhanced by the ability to create custom alerts, dashboards, and reports. The two companies expect their new product to offer a more streamlined experience for users engaged in industrial use for making functional parts via AM systems.
Addiguru algorithms are responsible for offering notifications through both the web interface and the app, alerting users to any possible problems by specifically highlighting alerts within the workflow, presenting full, real-time traceability. Images and analyses for each machine and build are documented:
“This includes the ability to overlay detected anomalies with sensor data taken from Authentise’s unique access to machine data,” states the Addiguru team in a recent press release.
“Existing in-process monitoring tools either require the user to have spent days setting up trial prints or to click through every image to detect potential flaws. The combination of our AI-driven insight and Authentise’s workflow tools enables the user to gain practical benefit in a system they love by having all data and notifications in one place.” says Shuchi Khurana, CEO of Addiguru “This initiative with Authentise also moves us closer to our goal of an open architecture framework.”
Founded in 2012, Authentise currently markets both AMES for workflow management and 3Diax for making software modules.
“The collaboration with Addiguru is a success because each party brings unique skills: Authentise provides coherent control of the digital thread and access to machine data, to which Addiguru can add visual inspection and intelligent analysis,” says Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “Our collaboration with Addiguru is testament to both Authentise’s openness and the continued inventiveness of the startup community.
“While incumbent providers try to develop everything in-house, we work with the brightest minds to ensure that critical, cutting-edge solutions enter the market rapidly. Addiguru joins a variety of partner modules in areas such as geometric search, mesh healing, or quoting. Their integration into our MES makes ground-breaking solutions accessible, affordable and seamless. We are proud to guarantee our clients that they will always have access to best-in-class solutions.”
Authentise products are currently used in applications for companies like Boeing, Ricoh, 3M, Danfoss, and others. Whether using 3D printing for prototyping or the creation of functional products, these companies are enjoying the many, classic benefits of 3D printing—from greater affordability to speed in manufacturing, improved traceability, and better quality. Addiguru is in the business of creating monitoring solutions for 3D printing systems, helping companies avoid costly mistakes during the build process, along with material waste. Their systems are easily integrated into existing AM equipment.
