Description

Bringing Additive Manufacturing into production requires a cross functional team within a company to implement new procedures and knowledge.

Typical challenges include:

  • Factory Layout
  • Production simulation for resource and output planning, including OEE projections and measurement
  • Operational Qualification of AM process
  • Performance Qualification of AM applications and Statistical Process Control
  • Health and Safety

The Additive Minds AM Production Program aims for a successful production start and scalability. 

Our intensive program offers cross-functional training, consulting and co-engineering specific to your organization. Together, we plan your facility, qualify your production and transfer our experience of more than 30 years to your team.

Review the phases of the program below. Phases can also be performed independently

  • Phase 1 – Facility and Production assessment: Evaluate current facility and application for AM production
  • Phase 2 – AM Education: Initial knowledge transfer to cross-functional team.
  • Phase 3 – Factory planning Production Simulation: Simulate cost per part, utilization and annual output and pla your factory layout
  • Phase 4 – Validation: completed an Operational and/or Performance Qualification, including documentation and knowledge transfer
  • Phase 5 – Way Forward: Project report incl. plan for scalability and next steps

At the end our AM Production program, you will have:

  • Understood all processes required to enter the serial manufacturing of AM applications
