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.
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.
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.
