Additive Manufacturing Quality Assurance Business Additive Assurance has announced a new version of its process monitoring solution, tailored for large format laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) machines.
According to a statement from the company on Wednesday, its new AMIRIS-LF system is tailored for machines with a build area of 400 millimeters or larger and “focuses on aerospace, defense and energy applications.”
Additive Assurance uses spectral sensors – located outside a machine that see into its chamber – and applies machine learning on data from these to detect defects during the manufacturing of a part.
This technique is an alternative to CT scanning, which is done after the print is finished to check the structural integrity of parts.
Its parent product, AMiRIS, was introduced in 2021.
The company said that, with the addition of the new AMIRIS-LF, they have expanded the reach of their standard AMIRIS solution to support eight different L-PBF machine types.
Maarten Jurg, Co-Founder and CEO of Additive Assurance, said, “AMIRIS LF is a reflection of our commitment to innovation and quality in additive manufacturing, moving us closer to our mission of creating a universal quality assurance solution that seamlessly Works from.” In different machine brands.”
The news comes after the company last week inaugurated a Center of Excellence for Metal Additive Manufacturing Quality at its Oakley facility in Victoria, Australia.
The company said the new center “represents a significant investment for Additive Assurance, and is expected to become a hub of innovation and collaboration in the field of metal additive manufacturing”.
Additive Assurance was Founded by Jürg in 2019 at Monash University with his former PhD supervisor, Associate Professor Andrey Molotnikov.
In December last year, it had announced a $4.1 million funding round led by Significant Capital Ventures (SCV).
The company was named one of Australia’s 50 Most Innovative Manufacturers in July this year.
