Senvol says their core expertise is in analyzing – and quantifying – how the implementation of additive manufacturing can increase business profit. A big part of the picture is a proprietary algorithm which helps producers determine which parts can be made more cost-effectively using AM when compared to traditional processes.

Annie Wang President of Senvol But it’s the Senvol Database, a searchable database which includes data on industrial additive manufacturing machines and materials, that’s generating a buzz. Users can search the database by entering their needs in more than 30 fields from machine build size, material type to material tensile strength to discover the information that they need – and the database is online and free to access.

An expansive network connected to major industry stakeholders means selections can be made which take into account AM hardware manufacturers, service bureaus, materials providers, academic institutions engaged in AM research, government organizations and government research laboratories.

Senvol is a member of America Makes, the public-private partnership comprised of 100 of the leading organizations in the additive manufacturing industry as well.

“We’re very excited by the Senvol Database, because it’s an extremely useful tool for everyone in the additive manufacturing industry,” says Senvol President, Zach Simkin. “There has been a growing need for a tool like this and we’re pleased to provide the industry with a solution.”

sen2The Senvol Database is aimed at everyone from potential machine buyers to engineers interested in searching materials by specific properties. For example, a design engineer might search for nylon materials which have a flexural modulus of at least 1,800 Mpa or an industry financial analyst might search for information about metal AM machines across the entire industry.

“Senvol very much values input and feedback from its user community,” said Annie Wang, the President of Senvol. “It’s through the power of our user community that we are able to continuously improve the Senvol Database.”
