Metal additive manufacturing systems from SLM Solutions have been integrated with Assembrix VMS software worldwide.
In response to growing demand for ‘secure distributed additive manufacturing,' the two firms have joined together. They believe that the collaboration will create a trustworthy additive manufacturing ecosystem with ‘new potentials at each stage of the value chain.'
The Assembrix VMS platform will allow remote printing on SLM machines while maintaining the highest security levels, giving users complete control over their printing process. With the aid of sophisticated encryption technology, clients can profit from a real-time data feed that delivers news on the printing process and ensures IP protection.
“We are excited to partner with SLM Solutions and offer our clients an end-to-end solution for secured distributed additive manufacturing that works seamlessly with SLM Solutions’ 3D printers,” commented Assembrix CEO Lior Polak. “The need to remotely control the additive manufacturing process with both existing and new suppliers is rapidly growing by manufacturers from multiple industries and locations. With Assembrix’s powerful platform, SLM Solutions can create ground-breaking business opportunities for customers and other key players in the additive manufacturing industry.”
“The Assembrix integration allows our customers to take advantage of a completely secure remote printing process while further driving the optimisation of their global supply chains,” added SLM Solutions CEO Sam O’Leary. “It fits perfectly to our open architecture strategy enabling and empowering our customers to do more, achieve more and be more successful.”
