3YOURMIND collaborates with Accenture to lay the foundation for a smart factory through machine connectivity

Blogpost Press Release

Berlin, Germany, September 28, 2021 - Distributed manufacturing as a solution for supply chain disruption is at the heart of the post-pandemic debate. This model involves a digital network of decentralized manufacturing sites spread across multiple locations and connected by digital technology. This model leverages the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to drive digital transformation forward. Industrial IoT uses a network of apps or sensors to collect production data from machines and push it into software to turn that data into valuable information about the efficiency of manufacturing operations. When it comes to 3D printing, machine connectivity is at the forefront of IIoT. It enables the transfer of data across globally connected manufacturing networks.

The umati standard influences AM


Additive manufacturing technologies and materials have made significant progress over the past several years - but even the top production houses still handle the majority of their scheduling and quality control using manual processes. This is because of the complexity of the work, the lack of best practices and the development of independent machine data systems. We know from other industries (USB, CDs, paper sizes) once those standards are in place and in use - a whole host of other processes simplify and production costs drop. The same will be true for additive manufacturing machines - the easier it is to exchange and share information, the more efficient they are. Companies across all industries involved in production are requesting a universal machine interface to ensure clear data collection, streamlined communication channels and control of different machine types. Umati enables machine vendors to provide a connectivity interface to easily connect to customer-specific software solutions.

Connectivity with 12 Manufacturers: Agile MES

Press Release

Bringing production floor automation to the next level will require real-time data. 3YOURMIND’s Agile MES now includes machine connectivity to bring production parameters directly into their software. All data is translated to the umati data standard for delivery speed and to support side-by-side comparison of multiple machines. This is an important step for optimizing machine utilization, adding production transparency and scaling additive manufacturing.
