At the recently concluded Formnext exhibition, 1000 Kelvin, a start-up that develops AI solutions for metal and polymer 3D printing technology, announced the full commercial availability of its AMAIZE AI-powered 3D printing software.
The company also announced its first integrations with commercial 3D printer manufacturers, including EOS, and customers, including a rocket launch provider based in California. Some of its other clients include SLM Solutions
AMAIZE AI-powered 3D Printing Software
AMAIZE was created to generate optimal print recipes using physics-informed AI technology for first-time right 3D printing. The software analyzes parts after they are uploaded to the AMAIZE cloud, and thermo-mechanical issues are automatically corrected by optimizing the scan strategy and process parameters. This eliminates the need for finite element simulation software and multiple physical iterations of parts, according to 1000 Kelvin.
“The manufacturing and production sector accounts for one-fifth of global carbon emissions and 54% of the world’s energy usage. 3D printing has the unique ability to address these issues, but not until it works consistently. By improving the efficiency and reducing the waste associated with 3D printing, while making the technology easier to use, AMAIZE contributes to a more sustainable future.”– Omar Fergani, Ph.D., Co-founder and CEO of 1000 Kelvin
Following the completion of its early adoption program, 1000 Kelvin has seen AMAIZE adopted by companies in the energy, aerospace, and contract manufacturing sectors, with multiple machine OEMs integrating the cloud native solution. AMAIZE is being used by an unnamed rocket launch provider, with the software allowing the company to digitally iterate solutions to a set of thermal management issues that were causing print failures.
The rocket launch provider claims to have successfully printed the part with improved surface quality and performance, while also reducing support structures by more than 80% and overall cost per part by 30% due to material and post-processing savings.
1000 Kelvin has so far raised $3 million in funding, allowing it to expand from Europe to the United States, where it can better support its clients in the aerospace and defence industries.
