Authentise, a data-driven engineering and manufacturing workflow tools company, has been awarded three grants in support of its Open Innovation initiatives within the AM sector – supported by Innovate UK, the US Department of Energy, and Eureka.


Together with NS85, Teesside University, Lancaster University, and Holdson, Authentise aims to overcome these challenges of manufacturing lattices and ensure highly functional metallic lattice parts, at scale. Authentise’s role in the project is to develop a seamless integration between the manufacturer, designer, and customer. The project is part of the Resource Efficiency for Materials and Manufacturing (REforMM) programme funded by Innovate UK (#10081046).


Together with EPOCH, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) of the University of Sheffield, Queen Mary University London, ION Metal, and Turkish Aerospace, Authentise aims to develop a seamless, ready-to-use Plasma-DED solution that addresses the pressing needs of the manufacturing, repair, and remanufacturing sectors, especially in aerospace. Authentise will use its expertise in data-driven workflow management and digital certification in support of a project that integrates cutting-edge digital manufacturing methods with state-of-the-art material technology. Distopia is enabled by Eureka’s SMART advanced manufacturing cluster and funded by Innovate UK (#10086469).


Authentise has been chosen as one of 10 projects selected for funding by the US Department of Energy through the Cybersecurity Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CyManII). The project aims to build a secure, real-time measurement system specifically to detect if malicious third parties have infiltrated an AM system to adjust or introduce defects. Authentise, I3D MFG, and Addiguru will demonstrate multiple verification data streams, all integrated into the CyManII-developed Cyber-Physical Passport. The result is expected to not only improve cyber security but also aid AM manufacturers in their ability to improve manufacturing quality assurance.

“These grants show that Authentise keeps pushing the boundaries of additive manufacturing to help accelerate the technology benefits of our customers, AM power users. Together, we are delivering a more secure and efficient technology, ready to penetrate further into the heart of manufacturing as a whole,” said Erica Vlahinos, VP of Additive Manufacturing at Authentise.

“Authentise has always pursued a very intentional open innovation approach working with a myriad of partners around the world to address some of the industry’s most pressing challenges. We’re delighted to have been trusted by both our project and funding partners to provide the digital backbone of the solutions. We’re excited to share the progress of these and many other projects to come,” said Simon McCaldin, VP of Open Innovation at Authentise.
