See the new AM-QUALITY system launched at Formnext 2022
The world’s first AM in-line quality control solution for AM workflows from AM automation leader AM-Flow
As the AM industry morphs from prototyping to high-quality manufacturing, Dutch workflow automation company AM-Flow is officially launching AM-QUALITY, the world’s first AM In-Line Quality Control solution at Formnext 2022. The system will be unveiled with an exclusive event on the first day of Formnext, set for 12.00 pm at the AM-Flow booth in Hall 12.1, E59.
“We’re extremely happy to announce the launch of the AM-QUALITY. Our perspective has always been to provide industrial solutions to the AM industry, setting industry standards, to help it scale and deliver on AM’s core benefits. Together with our part identification, sorting, bagging, transport, and bin-picking modules, the AM-QUALITY, as the latest member of the AM-Flow family of solutions, will help scale the AM industry and increasingly be the manufacturing technology of choice for more and more applications”, according to Stefan Rink, CEO AM-Flow.
The AM-QUALITY production line enables quality control of each, and every part produced in 3D print factories, at an unprecedentedly high processing speed. 100% quality control, at a cycle time of 10 seconds per part, with a resolution of 50 Microns. The AM-QUALITY identifies issues such as breakages, warping, surface defects, etc. thus enabling early detection and addressing of sub-quality prints, immediately during production.
At Formnext 2022, AM-Flow will continue to showcase its industry-leading automation platform developed specifically for additive mass production. Together with systems such as AM-VISION and AM-SORT, the AM QUALITY is a key element in most AM service providers’ automation efforts. It is meant to rapidly ensure the highest quality standards and thus enable certification – for example for the medical, automotive and aviation industries – while slashing the cost per part of quality control from tens of dollars to only cents.
Supported by AM-Flow’s proprietary middleware software platform, AM-LOGICTM, the AM-QUALITY feeds all generated data back to the MES system of clients, enabling immediate reprints when necessary and optimizing setting parameters of the 3D printers and post-production equipment, creating a true Industry 4.0 AM industry.
