AMFG has launched a new software platform that uses artificial intelligence to automate additive manufacturing production. In conjunction with its launch, the UK-based company, formerly known as RP Platform, also announced a brand name change to AMFG as it expands its software capabilities to target AM end-part production.

According to the company, two key barriers to widespread adoption of 3D printing are manual and unscalable production processes. Its AI-driven software is said to address these issue by providing manufacturers with automation for scheduling, printability analyses, postprocessing and machine analytics. In addition to greater traceability and efficiency, the software offers custom ERP and PLM integrations. 

“Our vision is for our software solution to enable autonomous additive manufacturing,” explains Keyvan Karimi, CEO of AMFG. “While 3D printing has the potential to transform manufacturing, we’ve seen the lack of a scalable production process as a key barrier. Our software closes this gap by incorporating machine learning algorithms to provide an end-to-end solution for the 3D printing manufacturing process."

“We want to help companies create a seamless 3D printing workflow so that they can produce more parts with greater visibility and less effort,” Keyvan says. “Ultimately, we’re creating a truly autonomous manufacturing process for industrial 3D printing. For us, this means taking manufacturing to a new era of digitalized production. The launch of our new software, as well as our company rebrand, fully reflects this vision going forward.”
