AM-FLOW introduces AM-QUALITY, the latest in a series of products for additive manufacturing post-processing. AM-QUALITY is a production line intelligent device to enable quality control monitoring for every part produced in a 3D printing process.
The company says AM-QUALITY offers a cycle time of 10 seconds per part at a resolution of 50 microns. The device uses scanning to monitor parts, allowing it to identify issues including breakage, warping, surface defects and more.
The product uses AM-Flow’s middleware solution AM-LOGIC, also used by other AM post-processing solutions in the AM-Flow line. AM-QUALITY feeds all data back to the client’s MES system. The company says this allows immediate reprints when necessary. AM-LOGIC also optimizes settings parameters for 3D printers and production equipment. AM-Flow says this creates a “true Industry 4.0” workflow.
Other products in the AM-Flow product line for additive manufacturing post-production workflow include AM-VISION, AM-SORT, AM-BAGGING, AM-PICK, AM-ID, AM-ROUTE and AM-EXPERT.
AM-Flow CEO Stefan Rink says the company’s product line “will help the AM industry and increasingly be the manufacturing technology of choice for more and more applications.”
