Barriers to additive manufacturing industrialization include powder quality and reusability, material handling, and inventory management. Today, these challenges around metal powder are managed through a plurality of systems for tracking inventory with individually populated spreadsheets and paper certificates. These various manual steps increase inefficiencies and offer neither a digital connection for automated traceability throughout the complete process chain nor output data for future predictive analytics.
PowderLife ONLINE from Carpenter Additive aims to address these challenges through a simple to use, secure cloud-based digital platform that accommodates materials and machines from all vendors. Serving as the foundation to the AM process, PowderLife ONLINE is a single system designed to govern the entire AM process with the ability to capture the digital thread and fulfil regulatory requirements to provide documentation for powder reuse, offering a single point of truth for traceability and inventory management throughout the entire lifecycle of the powder.
Join us as we discuss why we developed this software solutions and present a demonstration of a typical AM build within the platform.
We look forward to hosting you!
