AMFG and LEO Lane Announce Strategic Partnership to Offer End-To-End Secure Workflow Solutions for Additive Manufacturing

London, UK, 4 December 2018 — AMFG, a leading provider of workflow automation software for additive manufacturing, has today announced a strategic partnership with LEO Lane, which offers industry-leading file security and IP protection solutions for the additive manufacturing industry. The partnership will see both companies integrate their software solutions to offer customers a secure solution for end-to-end AM workflow management, including virtual inventories and on-demand production.

As a result, the partnership is a strong strategic fit, leveraging the companies’ respective strengths across two main areas:

First, the partnership will enhance AMFG’s comprehensive MES system by adding LEO Lane’s best in class security solutions to its offering. These include protecting IP, securing and real-time tracking of digital assets, enforcing control over consistency, quality and quantity of parts and products as part of a secured workflow management system.

Second, LEO Lane’s customers can benefit from AMFG’s end-to-end workflow management solutions, including production scheduling, post-processing scheduling and file preparation tools.

The combination of workflow management and file security solutions provides the ideal means for companies to manage their digital inventories and facilitate agile, on-demand production. While details cannot yet be disclosed, the two companies have already acquired their first joint industrial client and are looking forward to working with more in the future.

“Security and IP protection are two of the main considerations for additive manufacturing today,” said Felix Doerr, AMFG’s Head of Business Development. “Customers want to be sure that all files and data are secure as they go about managing their AM operations. LEO Lane brings a wealth of experience, credibility and forward-thinking to AM security, and our partnership further enhances AMFG’s holistic approach to managing additive manufacturing workflows.”

Lee-Bath Nelson, LEO Lane’s Co-Founder and VP Business, added: “Securely automating the workflow is a must for serial production with AM. Companies, such as our joint customer with AMFG, need an end-to-end solution to manage their AM process efficiently and securely. The combination of AMFG and LEO Lane provides just such a solution. We’re excited to partner with AMFG and deliver on the areas that matter most for companies: consistency, quality and quantity.”
