ExOne Scout provides real-time machine monitoring and analysis of production 3D printers.

The ExOne Co., a developer of industrial sand and metal 3D printers, has announced the ExOne Scout, a secure app that provides real-time machine monitoring and analysis of production 3D printers on a range of digital devices, including smart phones and watches. The app is available for download in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

The company says the Scout app is part of a feature-rich, web-based program that can deliver push notifications to smart devices about job status, printhead speed, fluid levels, temperature, humidity and other actionable manufacturing data. 

Scout is designed for use with two ExOne production 3D printers enabled by Siemens MindSphere, an operating system which offers multilayered security. The app works with the S-Max Pro sand 3D printer, which is used for the production of sand molds and cores for metalcasting parts in the aerospace, automotive, agricultural, defense and other industries. It also works with the X1 160Pro metal 3D printer, which is in production and slated to begin shipping to industrial customers by year-end.

Users will be able to connect the MindSphere-powered 3D printers to Scout in order to simplify machine monitoring, receive real-time insights and benefit from enhanced quality assurance and analysis, according to the company.
