Sculpteo, part of BASF and a leading online 3D printing service provider in France, signed a contract with Dutch company AM-Flow to purchase multiple AM-Flow systems and specifically the AM-VISION, AM-SORT and AM-BAGGING systems.

The combined cutting-edge system will help revolutionize Sculpteo’s production process by using advanced vision technology to identify parts, automate sorting and label & bagging capabilities. Sculpteo was established in 2009 by Eric Carreel and Clément Moreau and quickly became one of the leaders in a new generation of online 3D printing service providers. In 2019 BASF 3D Printing Solutions, a subsidiary of BASF New Business GmbH, acquired Sculpteo, making the company a key element in its AM strategy that also embraces all materials under the newer Forward AM brand.

Marion Timmermans, Sales Director of the company that developed the AM-Flow system, said, “We were honored to have Alexandre d’Orsetti, CEO of Sculpteo, visit us in Amsterdam and are thrilled to continue our work with Sculpteo on this project. A huge shout-out to Alexandre and his team for choosing our company and for their continued trust in our products and services.”

At Formnext 2022, Hugo Ploegmakers had the opportunity to talk with Alexandre about the increased presence of automation systems and robots. He believes that automation is a key part of additive manufacturing and will lead to increased profitability, efficiency, and quality. He also discussed the bottleneck of high-mix parts and the need for quality control in the industry.

“The AM-Flow system not only brings assistance in sorting parts but also offers an opportunity to rethink and redesign our production flow. It’s not just about incorporating a machine, but also adding more quality control earlier in the steps. Ultimately, AM-Flow presents a way for us to improve not just sorting, but the entire flow.” According to Alexandre d’Orsetti, CEO of Sculpteo.

With the support of the AM-Flow system, Sculpteo will continue to automate its factory. The French company now uses additive manufacturing to offer new manufacturing opportunities for both prototypes and finished products, helping companies overcome the constraints of traditional manufacturing methods. Sculpteo’s online platform is intuitive and easy to use, allowing customers to optimize and analyze their 3D models, receive an instant quote, and send their parts to production with just a few clicks. These abilities will be enhanced by the increased workflow automation made possible via the AM Flow systems.
