1000 Kelvin is bringing AI smarts to additive manufacturing, inking partnerships with EOS and Autodesk to integrate its AMAIZE AI-driven software into popular offerings. The goal: To bring efficiencies and higher quality to AM production workflows.

1000 Kelvin and EOS leveraged the EOSPRINT APIs to integrate the cloud-based AMAIZE platform into the EOS software suite. The deep integration is designed to significantly expedite production workflows and the engineering process for EOS customers, particularly those in the aerospace and contract manufacturing segments. With AMAIZE integration, EOS users can harness AI to streamline design processes, reduce engineering costs (officials claim by up to 80%), and accelerate introduction of new AM-built products.

To activate the AI co-pilot, users simply import a print file into AMAIZE, select the material, and the cloud-based AI-driven software analyzes the scan strategy to predict any process anomalies that might lead to potential defects. The software will tag any problematic vectors or regions, making it easy to do subsequent correction and optimization. For AM managers, the idea is to cut manufacturing costs without compromising on quality as well as boosting Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) scores to maximize operational excellence.

FKM, an early adopter of the integrated AMAIZE solution for EOS systems says the software has helped improve engineering speed and product quality, driving excellence in digital manufacturing. “1000 Kelvin’s AMAIZE allows our engineers to predictively navigate complex components quality and consistency requirements,” said Matthias Henkel, CEO of the AM contract manufacturer.

In related news. 1000 Kelvin announced availability of AMAIZE as a plug-in for Autodesk’s Fusion CAD/CAM platform. Engineers can take advantage of AMAIZE’s machine learning models, which are informed by physics and manufacturing data, to predict design and print issues and produce print files that results in successful prints. The combination helps eliminate physical trial and error cycles and enables engineers handle more complex parts without multiple design iterations.

Stephen Hooper, Autodesk vice president, Design & Manufacturing Product Development, said the AI-enabled AMAIZE simplifies AM technology so it’s accessible to a wider audience. “By automating the setup and programming of industrial-grade print processes, 1000 Kelvin’s AI, integrated with Autodesk Fusion in the cloud, unlocks the opportunity for a much broader pool of professionals to be successful with AM,” he said.

Another benefit of an AI co-pilot for AM—addressing the lack of seasoned AM production talent. “AMAIZE is an enabler to overcoming this hurdle, helping companies secure their know-how,” said Omar Fergani, CEO and co-founder of 1000 Kelvin.

AMAIZE is available on the Autodesk App store.
