Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), a British industrial AM company focused on Industry 4.0, is launching its proprietary Digital Manufacturing System (DMS) at Formnext 2019. The post-processing system is a customizable automated turnkey solution for industry use.

AMT says its goal is to provide “fully automated safe and sustainable post-processing solutions to enable the industrial production of additively manufactured parts at scale.” It does this with DMS, which covers the entire manufacturing process chain from build through to final inspection.

In total, the DMS system handles:

  • Unpacking the AM machine with automatic sorting
  • Material removal and de-powdering with the PostPro3DDP system
  • Smoothing and/or coloring
  • Inspection with PostPro3DMet metrology system

All of these stages are connected, providing an end-to-end manufacturing solution for industrial use.

“As a company we are making a big statement at Formnext this year, where we will demonstrate the innovation that sets AMT apart as a solutions provider for true industrial additive manufacturing,” said Joseph Crabtree, CEO of AMT.

Crabtree noted that AMT’s solutions combine market-leading technology, machine learning capabilities, automation and “superior research and production partnerships.” He says DMS unites the stages of post-processing via “intelligent, digital connectivity and innovative hardware.”

AMT’s post-processing system will be easy to find at Formnext, since the company is occupying a booth measuring 84 square meters. The booth contains more than 6,000 3D printed and post-processed parts.

“The stand is light and completely modular, meaning that it can be reused in configurations that suit any future events while being easy and carbon-efficient to transport,” Crabtree added.

Founded in 2017, AMT is based in the UK but has facilities in the US and mainland Europe.
