LONDON, UK, July 3, 2018 – AMFG, the leading provider of automation software for additive manufacturing, launched its new software platform that uses artificial intelligence to automate additive manufacturing production for the first time. In conjunction with its launch, the UK-based company, formerly known as RP Platform, also announced a brand name change to AMFG as it expands its software capabilities to target AM end-part production.
With over 70% of OEMs already implementing 3D printing, the technology is a game-changer for manufacturing. However, two key barriers to widespread adoption are manual and unscalable production processes. AMFG’s AI-driven software addresses this issue by providing manufacturers with complete AM production automation, including:
- Scheduling automation
- Printability analyses
- Post-processing automation
- Machine analytics
“Our vision is for our software solution to enable autonomous additive manufacturing,” explained Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG. “While 3D printing has the potential to transform manufacturing, we’ve seen the lack of a scalable production process as a key barrier. Our software closes this gap by incorporating machine learning algorithms to provide an end-to-end solution for the 3D printing manufacturing process.”
AMFG has fast become one of the leading automation software providers for additive manufacturing, with customers in over 30 countries, including global leaders across the automotive, aerospace, consumer goods and education sectors. Its new software solution also aims to provide greater traceability and efficiency to AM production, and offers custom ERP and PLM integrations.
“We want to help companies create a seamless 3D printing workflow so that they can produce more parts with greater visibility and less effort,” Keyvan said. “We have more exciting releases to our software over the coming months that will further enhance our production automation capabilities.
“Ultimately, we’re creating a truly autonomous manufacturing process for industrial 3D printing. For us, this means taking manufacturing to a new era of digitalized production. The launch of our new software, as well as our company rebrand, fully reflects this vision going forward.”
AMFG provides the leading production automation software for additive manufacturing. Their software automates and streamlines the entire additive manufacturing process, helping companies achieve highly automated and connected production processes. Covering the entire AM workflow, AMFG uses the latest in machine intelligence to help companies coordinate their manufacturing processes, with tools like machine scheduling, holistic build analyses and supplier integration.
Their vision is to automate every stage of the AM production process — helping companies streamline their operations, gain more efficiency and achieve full workflow traceability.
