Valuechain.com Receives Funding to Develop AI Software

Valuechain.com has received funding from UK Research & Innovation towards the development of artificial intelligence for its additive manufacturing production control software.

Valuechain.com has received 960,000 pounds in funding from UK Research & Innovation towards the development of artificial intelligence for its additive manufacturing production control software, DNAam.  DNAam was developed in collaboration with Airbus UK to standardize aerospace additive manufacturing production processes and enable scalability in the aerospace sector. This project looks to further develop the platform to use AI to optimize processes by analyzing multiple data sources.

“Through our collaboration with Airbus UK we have developed DNAam into the global market leading production control solution for aerospace AM,” says Tom Dawes, Valuechain CEO. “With this project, we are looking to be able to model big data captured from multiple sources such as ERP systems; AM plant, equipment and sensors; and material analysis software; to understand correlations between powder properties, plant / sensor parameters, part complexity and production builds and generate AM optimization insights.

The development will enable Valuechain.com to build on its partnership with FDM Digital Solutions, to open an Innovation Center in FDM’s Lancashire facility where the technology developed through the Innovate UK funding shall be trialed prior to commercialization.
