The Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace has been expanded with new Additive Manufacturing solutions as Siemens have added its partners 3D printing solutions including EOS, Castor and AMbitious.
Users entering the AM industry can use the 3D printing solutions offered by Castor, EOS, and AMbitious through the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace which will be further upgraded to add services from other AM companies.
Over the last few years, Siemens has created an end-to-end ecosystem of 3D printing solutions that has encompassed many partnerships from the AM industry including 110 machine manufacturing companies that make 3D printed parts based on Siemens automation. The company also has integrated software solutions.
At Formnext this year, Siemens took the logical step of adding partner solutions on the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace that seamlessly complement Siemens’ solutions and deliver value-add services. Castor, AMbitious and EOS are the first AM companies to join the platform to offer their 3D printing services.
The Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace is supported by a portfolio of software curated by Siemens along with IoT enabled hardware which helps the AM industry in digital transformation. This platform makes it easy to integrate systems and ensures maintenance of customer operations.
The first AM companies participating in the marketplace will help to assess the sustainability of the AM producers as they can calculate their carbon footprint.
The solutions offered by the AM companies
With Castor’s cloud-based and on-premises software AM parts’ product design can be technically and economically analysed to identify if they are suitable for additive manufacturing. The software evaluates materials and technologies ideal for making a particular 3D printed part. The software comes integrated with PLM systems like Siemens Teamcenter.
The EOS Carbon Calculator will enable AM users to calculate the carbon footprint of their 3D printing process and how 3D printing materials affect the carbon footprint. The software does a CO2 analysis to provide information on levers that can reduce the carbon footprint throughout the AM process. The carbon calculator has a data-driven design allowing for easy adjustments of CO2 targets.
AMbitious is offering support solutions like VR training on powder bed based metal AM. Their solutions are powered by Toolcraft bundles built by experienced AM experts from Toolcraft AG. The company also has a Mendix-based maintenance app which provides real-time information on plant performance, ultimately reducing waste and lowering costs.
