DATA SHEET

PrintRite3D INSPECT®

Software for in-process inspection of metallurgical properties. Uses sensor data and establishes in-process metrics for each metal or alloy during the process. Provides manufacturing engineers with part quality report based on rigorous statistical analysis of manufacturing process data. Allows for interrogation of suspect part data and can be used for process improvement and optimization.

REPORTING

FEATURES
• Provides position-related anomaly detection
• Production report with actionable results and root cause troubleshooting
• Real-time acquisition and visualization: HMI module
• Data analysis engine: multi-variate statistical based algorithms

BENEFITS
• In-process quality data is predictive of post-process physical characteristics
• Early defect detection
• Production optimization
• Risk reduction

DATA SHEET

PrintRite3D CONTOUR®

Under development.

Software for real-time monitoring of in-process part geometry. Layer-by-layer geometry measurement tool. Provides manufacturing engineers with the capability of comparison of ‘as-built’ to original digital CAD model ‘should-be.’ Includes optics, mechanical system and data path to image two-dimensional melted powder.

REPORTING
• Powerful edge detection algorithms verify geometry of the component as it is being built.
• Provides three-dimensional roll-up of all layers.

FEATURES
• Real-time in-process monitoring of geometry
• Collects in-process sensor and machine data
• Links real-time process data to critical-to-quality (CTQ) features
• Provides for process intervention
• Real-time acquisition and visualization: HMI module
• Measurement accuracy sufficient to resolve a 100μm feature in-plane

BENEFITS
• Provides objective evidence of compliance to design intent
• Early defect detection
• Scrap reduction
• Increased yield

DATA SHEET

PrintRite3D ANALYTICS®

Under development.

Software for manufacturing intelligence — trend, correlation, exploration. Software and database that links all critical data over multiple builds, machines, and fabrication sites over time. Provides management and seamless access to all in-process and post-process data over the entire product life cycle.

REPORTING
• Intra-company cloud/servers or outside service provider
• Open data mining and visualization tools
• Cross-build correlation and trend charting

FEATURES
• Acquires data from:
• PrintRite3D INSPECT®
• PrintRite3D CONTOUR®
• Organizes data
