AMFG to Showcase New Post-Production Management System at Formnext 2018
New features include tool for identifying parts post-build and a new post-processing scheduling system
5 November 2018 — UK-based company AMFG, which provides workflow automation software for additive manufacturing, will be demonstrating new post-production management solutions to its AI-driven software platform at this year’s Formnext trade show. The new solutions include a tool that helps users identify parts post-build, a new post-processing scheduling system and a quality assurance (QA) management tool.
The post-production stage is an important step in any AM workflow, as it is vital to ensure parts meet requirements. Through its digital solutions for post-production management, AMFG aims to simplify and automate this process. One of the key features AMFG will be demonstrating at Formnext is its Digital Part Identification tool, which allows production engineers to automatically identify finished parts post-build, so as to compare them to requirements and prepare them for additional post-processing and delivery. In addition, the tool can be used within the platform to:
Communicate with project and planning teams in real time, e.g. to provide project and part status updates;
Conduct quality assurance checks and logistics management.
