The increasing complexity of additive manufacturing workflows have created a demand for systems capable of handling ever expanding requirements, and now Streago says their secure, industrial, cloud-based 3D printing business and workflow management system was chosen by the European Space Agency as part of an ESA procurement contract.
Designed for industry verticals which combine additive manufacturing workflows, machines, and business management functions, Streago AirSpace is said to be a secure industrial cloud platform which includes copyright and integrity protection through the Streago platform.
Streago says AirSpace will allow industrial customers to securely store and manage original 3D design files, orders, and quotations; administer their manufacturing devices and users; prepare and manufacture orders; and operate digital marketplaces – all with with copyright protection at each step.
Streago founder Kimmo Isbjörnssund calls it the Virtual Factory of the Future.
“As manufacturing is moving into flexible virtual networks, the Streago AirSpace cloud platform is enabling the new Virtual Factories of the Future,” Isbjörnssund says. “Streago gives corporations, 3D printing service providers, AM machine manufacturers and designers an ultra-secure, end-to-end business solution for their additive manufacturing needs.”
Streago primarily focuses on B2B and industrial manufacturing networks and professional prototyping and 3D printing service bureaus. The Streago AirSpace platform is also capable of supporting subtractive manufacturing processes.
“Where necessary, we integrate with legacy systems and design and deliver a flexible and secure business solution,” Isbjörnssund says.
The European Space Agency (ESA) was formed to shape the development of Europe’s space capability through the collaborative efforts of 22 member states, and the group is aimed at coordinating financial and intellectual resources which might be beyond the scope of any single European country. The ESA, headquartered in Paris, operates sites in a number of other European countries and has liaison offices in Belgium, the US, and Russia. The group also runs a launch base in French Guiana as well as ground and tracking stations in various parts of the world.
Streago currently operates offices in Tallinn, Estonia and Tokyo, Japan, and the company designs and delivers secure industrial cloud 3D printing platforms for leading industrial partners.
