Oqton and Baker Hughes want to accelerate the design and production of 3D printed parts. Here is how.

Software provider Oqton and energy technology company Baker Hughues, sign a partnership to develop an industrial digital ecosystem for the manufacture of products across highly regulated industries such as energy, aerospace, and healthcare.

Both companies aim to accelerate the design and production of additively manufactured parts across the entire manufacturing workflow, facilitating this way regulatory compliance.

To do so, Baker Hughes is integrating Oqton’s Manufacturing OS into its workflow, including its own proprietary additive manufacturing solutions developed for vertical applications over the last decade.

Combining Oqton’s autonomous approach to manufacturing and Baker Hughes’ expertise in the development and introduction of production processes into highly regulated industrial environments will enable the companies to create an enhanced additive manufacturing platform for the energy industry.

This is intended to serve as the foundation for the companies to develop additional applications and plug-ins that will become part of the Oqton Manufacturing OS and open new markets in additional regulated industries with demanding end-use applications such as aerospace and healthcare.

As an energy technology company, Baker Hughes is fully committed to the development of the most advanced technologies looking for more efficient, more reliable, and cleaner energy solutions,” said Jim Sessions, vice president for completions and well interventions at Baker Hughes. “Digital transformation is the center of gravity in the advanced manufacturing process. We believe that to achieve an efficient and reliable process we need to enable automation and autonomous controls in our end-to-end manufacturing workflows. We are transforming how the industry works today and in the future.”
