  • AMFG Publishes its Second Annual Additive Manufacturing Landscape 2020

The Digital Manufacturing Centre Integrates AMFG MES Software To Increase Operational Efficiency

The DMC will use AMFG software to organise, track and manage AM production activities.

London, UK, September 24, 2020 — AMFG is announcing that its Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for Additive Manufacturing will power the soon-to-open Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) in Silverstone, UK. The AMFG software will support AM production at the DMC by enabling full process control and traceability of 3D printing jobs and parts.

The DMC will open in early 2021 to give local companies access to digital manufacturing capabilities and expert knowledge. The DMC will have a full range of AM capability, including design, engineering, manufacturing, inspection and post-processing, making the DMC a one-stop shop for AM services and expertise.

To take full advantage of digital manufacturing, the DMC will integrate a full suite of AMFG’s MES solutions that will help its team organise, monitor and execute AM production activities.

AMFG’s order and production management tools will enable the DMC engineers to keep track and prioritise job orders, prepare builds and schedule production, as well as monitor job statuses in real-time.

AMFG DMC Production Overview

The partnership will result in the Digital Manufacturing Centre becoming a development consultant, contributing to the innovation roadmap of the AMFG system, for bespoke DMC requirements and the wider additive manufacturing community, in its pursuit of industry 4.0.

“The 2,000 square meter DMC facility will be full of engineers and machines providing complex and innovative solutions for the most advanced industrial customers. Integrating AMFG’s MES software will be instrumental in helping us establish a true digital manufacturing workflow to deliver on our goals,” commented Kieron Salter, CEO of the Digital Manufacturing Centre.

Furthermore, AMFG will enable the DMC engineers to track KPIs related to Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) and use data analytics tools to identify any bottlenecks and optimise processes.

“Digital manufacturing is burgeoning in the UK, and the launch of the DMC is yet another positive sign of this trend. Our goal is to support this trend with MES software, designed to digitise and streamline AM operations from end to end,” said Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG. “We’re proud that the DMC facility will integrate the AMFG software and we look forward to driving the future of digital manufacturing together.”
