Industrial Process Monitoring for
Laser Powder Bed Fusion

by Additive Assurance

Additive Assurance provides in-situ quality assurance for metal additive manufacturing through process monitoring. The patent pending technology combines a suite of optical sensors to gather detailed process information, and through machine learning provide rich insight into the process. All of this while maintaining a manageable data rate.

Agnostic to number lasers and capable of detecting a wide range of process instabilities Additive Assurance technology offers more than simple process monitoring. Adjustable thresholds for tracking, notification and or intervention ensure highest machine utilization and quality control. Backed by powerful machine learning algorithms, this process monitoring solution is taking Quality Assurance in metal Additive Manufacturing to the next level.

Produtivity

It's about Productivity

Know immediately when a build is non-conforming. Real-time feedback shows defects as soon as they occur, with the option to automatically stop a build that surpasses a user set defect threshold.

distributed manufacturing

It's about Distribution

Standardised quality tracking and reporting independent of machine type and location. Ensure distributed supply chains are producing components to specification, no matter where they are.

readiness

It's about Readiness

Rapid manufacturing, now also with rapid certification. Ensure part conformance in-process, reducing the time to from print to in field deployment.

Features

Generate 2D/3D process maps to pinpoint and characterise defects, anomalies, and machine errors.

Full QA Reporting

Centralised quality assurance platform collects all machine process data allowing streamlined QA reporting.

Machine Agnostic

Our platform independent solution can be used with any laser powder bed fusion system. External mounting or machine integration options available.

Multi-laser Compatible

Use with one laser or four, our technology is capable of multi-laser tracking and can be used for monitoring laser overlap areas.

Rapid Retrofit

Our externally mounted vision system is simple to install and requires zero machine modifications. No impact on gas flow or machine warranty.

Access from Anywhere

Cloud based software means you can track multiple machines at any time using our intuitive user interface.
