Why Is It Important?
Link3d introduces AMES and additive manufacturing workflow technology to help OEMs and tier 1 service bureaus streamline their additive manufacturing processes in an effort to encourage mainstream adoption of 3D printing, reduce costs, expedite production times to enhance competitive manufacturing strategies.
Link3D serves major industries, including aerospace and defense, to help them embrace 3D printing workflow software in order to maintain the integrity of the digital twin, optimize operational efficiency, and be cost-effective in a secure environment. Link3d has uncovered an opportunity to provide not only aerospace organizations with the ability to streamline AM processes, but also give OEMs and tier 1 service bureaus access to connect with industrial metal 3D printers with their manufacturing execution system.
Features include: ITAR, EAR, EC work order management; blockchain security; on-premise deployment or private cloud deployment; connectivity to industrial metal machines; digital catalog for on-demand manufacturing of certified spare parts, tools, jigs and fixtures.
We integrated, for the first time, blockchain technology for AM processes – and soon, metal and polymer 3D printers. Blockchain tech provides the ability to securely verify service bureau processes throughout the production for aerospace businesses. This level of safety is specifically important to the aerospace and defense industry. Link3D continuously helps companies in the aerospace field to maximize AM processes to encourage mainstream adoption of 3D printing.
