Authentise Releases 3Diax Machine Analytics: Real-time Status Monitoring for Additive Manufacturing
First tool to automatically monitor active prints and identify Key Performance Indicators is a key step to moving the technology from lab to production.

3Diax Machine Analytics is the first off-the-shelf component of the 3Diax platform. It enables companies to monitor the status of all their additive manufacturing devices simultaneously, regardless of manufacturer. It also displays key statistics such as machine utilization and material usage on a convenient dashboard or Application Programming Interface (API). This gives companies the edge they need to acquire or maintain their lead. Using the system, customers will be able to increase throughput by quickly identifying available devices no matter where they are based, or reduce material waste by detecting inefficient printers or forgotten half-used material caches.
"You can't improve what you can't measure", says Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise and Digital Manufacturing faculty at Singularity University. "Manufacturers and service providers who want to drive additive manufacturing to production scale know that they need operational transparency in real-time. 3Diax Machine Analytics provides it, but it's just a start - using 3Diax's other modules to build on the data enables measurable efficiency gain."
A key element of 3Diax Machine Analytics is its extensibility with corporate IT systems, atop Authentise's open API's, or other elements of the 3Diax platform. Utilizing production data intelligently can yield more accurate quotes, automatic distribution of prints, or more efficient material inventory management, among other benefits.
"As the industry overcomes hardware, design and material challenges to identify more and more disruptive use cases for additive, the volumes rise exponentially,"
