EOS North America’s Additive Minds team and 3YOURMIND have partnered to accelerate additive manufacturing adoption through their Rapid Part Identifier program. Now, organizations can benefit from rapid part screening of 2D and 3D files, augmented by AM engineering expertise to create a holistic industrial 3D printing strategy. This new partnership agreement helps quickly scale part identification for AM, supported by the strategy and engineering required to achieve successful production.
“We are providing a path for organizations to leave the whiteboard and Excel spreadsheet world by creating a faster, more professional approach to building a digital parts warehouse ready for AM production,” said Fabian Alefeld, senior manager at Additive Minds. “We partnered with 3YOURMIND to help unlock AM’s potential by eliminating what historically required months of analysis, and quickly generate business cases for on-demand, highly-engineered applications.”
The Additive Minds applied engineering team works with organizations to develop and scale AM production. Additive Minds pioneered the part screening methodology that historically entailed combing through extensive customer part libraries for viable AM applications. With this agreement, Additive Minds now leverages 3YOURMIND’s software and its ability to digitally optimize the part screening methodology across the entire AM value chain, including part identification, qualification, order management, and production scheduling.
EOS and 3YOURMIND jointly developed the Rapid Part Identifier software solution by leveraging EOS data to improve the 3YOURMIND algorithm and more accurately predict costs and application printability; increasing the speed of part screening for customers with large, traditionally manufactured application inventory; and providing end users with comparative digital inventory of uploaded and evaluated parts to make data-driven decisions based on results.
”EOS has always been a strong supporter of 3YOURMIND and our vision of streamlined, intuitive additive manufacturing workflows,” said Aleksander Ciszek, co-founder and CEO of 3YOURMIND. “By collaborating with Additive Minds, we look forward to showcasing to EOS customers how simple additive manufacturing can be when it’s backed by strong part business cases from day one.”
