1000 Kelvin, a US- and Germany-based AI-driven additive manufacturing software company, and Fieldmade, a Norwegian pioneer in mobile manufacturing for rugged environments, have entered a partnership set to rapidly increase the immediate deployment of 3D printing at the front lines – enhancing strategic readiness and operational capabilities within the military sector. The partnership was announced at the Military Additive Manufacturing (MilAM) Summit & Technology Showcase in Tampa, Florida.

1000 Kelvin’s innovative AMAIZE platform utilizes artificial intelligence informed by physics and manufacturing data to provide AM engineers with an AI copilot – correcting print recipes and ensuring the successful production of AM parts. This technology aligns seamlessly with Fieldmade’s expertise in creating deployable AM solutions, such as their NOMAD Series of transportable AM modules. By combining their products, the two companies enable users in the field to immediately begin producing parts as soon as their 3D printer modules arrive on site – ensuring swift adaptability to operational needs.

1000 Kelvin’s software acts as an autocorrect copilot for 3D printing. By using a physics-informed AI, AMAIZE automatically identifies and corrects issues in a print file without altering the original design to achieve a perfect part the first time it is printed.

“Our vision is to make deployable 3D printing as easy as using a vending machine. The integration of 1000 Kelvin’s AMAIZE into our products is a significant step towards this goal,” said Jostein Olsen, CEO of Fieldmade.

With a history of collaborating with the Norwegian Armed Forces and other defense entities, Fieldmade is a well-suited partner for 1000 Kelvin, which has already seen its software integrated into production-level metal 3D printers. Fieldmade’s ability to deploy units capable of operating in diverse conditions complements 1000 Kelvin’s goal of enhancing AM’s efficiency and accelerating engineering.

“By combining our strengths, we’re not just advancing technology; we’re providing solutions that can save time, costs, and in critical military scenarios, even lives,” said Omar Fergani, Ph.D., CEO and Co-founder of 1000 Kelvin.

The collaboration between 1000 Kelvin and Fieldmade sets a new standard in AM for the military sector by offering end-to-end additive solutions that ensure high-quality part production rapidly, anywhere and anytime.
