As a result of this collaboration, the two markets will merge into a single, superior service. This system includes both a place to get metal powder and a database of tried-and-true settings for 3D printing. It is hypothesised that this bundled service would help customers maximise their 3D printing efforts, hastening the process of metal additive manufacturing’s industrialisation and democratisation.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with AddiMap and combine our strengths to create a comprehensive solution for the AM industry,” said company’s Co-founder Yannik Wilkens. Together, we can help users realise the full potential of additive manufacturing by offering easy access to AddiMap’s large printing parameters database.
Qualloy and Addimap Collab for 3D printing
Two “state-of-the-art” systems that “perfectly” complement one another have joined forces in this venture. Its online metal powder market makes it simple for buyers and sellers to meet and do business. It uses a sophisticated search algorithm to do this. According to the developers, getting the right metal powders from reliable vendors worldwide makes it easier.
In addition, our patrons are unrestricted in their choice of metal powder suppliers. Users may maintain an open and effective procurement process while optimising pricing, delivery time, and quality.
When it comes to metal powders, Wilkens claims, “With us, we have simplified the market, enabling buyers to find the perfect match for their printers quickly.”
AddiMap was released in beta form last year after being developed by Rosswag Engineering, a service bureau for metal 3D printing, and NuCOS, a software company. The time and energy spent on developing and qualifying printing parameters is reported to be drastically cut with AddiMap’s plug-and-play printing parameter platform.
Thanks to AddiMap’s parameter library, it’s possible to go straight from digital models to manufactured goods. According to AddiMap, their product helps speed up the process of industrialising metal additive manufacturing by making information and materials more accessible to a broader audience.
AddiMap’s creator, Gregor Graf, has stressed the need for collaboration and reduced prices in promoting the widespread use of metal 3D printing. To realise Metal AM’s full potential, teamwork is essential. More materials and lower prices will hasten industrial adoption.
Graf elaborated, “With AddiMap, we aim to provide users with a vast range of process parameters, allowing them to increase productivity, optimise properties, explore new materials, and streamline their AM operations.”
Together, the two firms will streamline the acquisition of metal powders and provide access to a comprehensive 3D printing parameter database, a move that both claims would significantly simplify additive manufacturing. These businesses aim to advance growth and innovation by industrialising and democratising additive manufacturing.
Industrializing additive manufacturing
The contemporary 3D printing business has a shared goal of speeding up the industrialisation of additive manufacturing. The Consortium for Materials Data and Standardisation (CMDS) programme at ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Centre of Excellence (AM CoE) welcomed many new members earlier this year. With 3D printing supplies being so important to the whole AM process, it’s no surprise that one of the CMD’s main goals is to “accelerate the industrialization and full adoption of AM technologies.”
BMW, a global automaker, stated this year that its effort to “Industrialise and Digitalize Additive Manufacturing” (IDAM) was a success. The initiative’s first phase, which began in 2019, set up two digitally connected vehicle 3D printing manufacturing lines in Bann and Munich. These assembly lines can currently manufacture roughly 50,000 units each year with minimal human intervention.
