#Formnext, day 1: first revelations of the 3D printing industry
Identify3D and Materialise demonstrate the integration of secure intellectual property in the Additive Manufacturing process
Identify3D, a specialist of software for the digital supply chain demonstrated today a proof of concept (PoC) of a secure end-to-end digital manufacturing process.
Data protection has also become an important issue in the 3D printing industry since a great part of this technology deals with industrial manufacturing environments. That’s why, companies need to find out solutions to secure intellectual property and control their assets.
So, Identify3D brings a joint initiative in the 3D printing industry to help create data protection throughout the entire additive manufacturing process.
How is the solution going to be used?
Thanks to this initiative, industrial designers for instance will encrypt and transfer design files with controlled access and authorization.
“We have identified the importance of having high-level security through every stage of the Additive Manufacturing process,” said Joe Inkenbrandt, Chief Executive Officer at Identify3D. “We are pleased to work with a leading player in the AM industry to provide design protection and production integrity throughout the digital manufacturing lifecycle.”
“As highly regulated industries like aerospace and healthcare embrace Additive Manufacturing technology as a way to optimize their production process, they also face new challenges such as data authenticity and integrity,” says Stefaan Motte, Vice President Software at Materialise. “Together with Identify3D, we are exploring new opportunities to deliver these enhanced security features to our customers.”
The aerospace, automotive, defense and healthcare industries will benefit from this solution.
