Having already agreed a partnership with Renishaw, Identify3D will now provide a solution for data protection coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing from design to production for SLM Solutions’ laser melting machines.
By securing all digital data in the engineering phase, the technology should enable SLM Solutions to secure digital IP, enforce production rules and provide traceability in the digital supply chain to the industry’s highest standard.
The integration of Identify3D’s EnforceTM software tools with SLM’s MCS machine control software should offer secure parts delivery to SLM 125, 280, 500, and SLM 800 additive machines, with control over quantities to be produced, over a defined period of time with selected parameters.
The collaboration should enable industries to accelerate their adoption of additive manufacturing and to deliver the necessary solutions.
Henner Schöneborn, member of the management board of SLM Solutions Group AG, said: “We are really looking forward to develop a long term collaboration with Identify3D since they can bring a key technology necessary to spread the benefits of our Industry 4.0 initiatives and solutions.
“With the solutions of Identify3D we can offer our customers a secure way to manufacture from digital design according to very specific manufacturing requirements at machine level. This is much needed to accelerate the adoption of Additive Manufacturing for serial production of end parts.”
