A collaboration between two software companies can often bring a powerful mix of advantages for industrials. Dyndrite is going to announce a lot of collaborations this week, and among all of them, we’ll keep the benefits its collaboration with AM Software company DNA.am, will provide to the AM industry. DNA.am believes that by addressing issues regarding IP protection concerns, quality assurance and material traceability, the adoption of AM could be multiplied across industries. To this end, DNA.am which is a part of The Fitfactory group, develops MES software solutions specifically for additive manufacturing in compliance with AS9100 and NADCAP.
You certainly known Dyndrite better as the company provides a core accelerated computation engine used to create next generation digital manufacturing hardware and software. Through multiple partnerships including its Developer Council Program, the company is looking to advance serial production in all manufacturing processes by also enabling repeatable quality and traceability.
As part of this partnership, DNA.am is integrating the company’s Accelerated Computation Engine (ACE) to optimize workflow automation during the build process, and build traceability to a higher level.
Dyndrite explains in a press release that the first phase of the integration will be the automated use of part metadata in the build, powered by its GPU-based processing and Python scripting.
“Unique identifiers such as serial numbers on every part are something we have needed in additive for a long time,” RamKumar Revanur, CTO, DNA.am states. “In large batch sizes, it is virtually impossible to do manually and yet Dyndrite can do the number crunching at scale to automatically place labels onto each part directly from a database or spreadsheet. While automated labeling is one example of the traceability required for production in additive. The way Dyndrite is enabling it is a huge leap forward. Our intent is to deeply integrate with Dyndrite to develop a robust system for traceability which includes databases for auto generated manufacturing travellers, build reports, and more.”
Based on auto-generated human-readable scripts in Python, Dyndrite can help define additive build preparation recipes that drive productivity and significantly reduce manual labour by codifying the workflow. If a design change needs to be made, these automated scripts can be executed, without technicians having to spend hours or days reconstructing the build data.
“Ultimately, we will have full and detailed traceability throughout the entire end-to-end additive workflow,” said Jim Walters, MD, DNA.am. “The flexibility of Dyndrite means that end users will have workflows that are easily tuned to their needs, whether qualifying new materials, parts, or mass customization within serial production.”
