Oqton, a firm that developed an Industry 4.0 solution for the mid-market, has now integrated EOS software capabilities into its Oqton FactoryOS end-to-end production platform. This partnership enables an unprecedented tight connection between manufacturing software and hardware.

“I am impressed by the level of build preparation automation and increases in productivity that can be achieved by leveraging Oqton FactoryOS as MES and IoT platform. With that and the easy to implement high standard cybersecurity capabilities, it is a unique cloud-based solution and we are happy that EOS customers can now benefit from it,” said Martin Steuer, EOS’s SVP Software Division.

Oqton FactoryOS Ben Schrauwen, Oqton’s CTO added: “This integration was only possible because of the open software architecture of EOS products and the support through the EOS Developer Network (EDN), making it easy to use the EOSPRINT and EOSCONNECT APIs in our cloud platform. We were able to deeply integrate our AI-automated build preparation workflow directly to the EOS systems of our customers, allowing to drive, manage and track them directly from the cloud.”

Users can send 3D print jobs from the cloud directly to a 3D printer anywhere in the world, receive alerts on a mobile device when a build is ready, deliver a full job quality report with every produced part and automatically optimize nests and schedule build jobs to maximize machine utilization. The integration between Oqton FactoryOS’s cloud manufacturing platform and EOS’ open hardware system has made it all possible. This is a great step towards full autonomous manufacturing.

Oqton’s AI-driven optimization captures best production practices, leading to improved quality and increased machine utilization, which results in significant increases in ROI for our mutual customers. For example, 100% automation can be achieved in dental and jewelry verticals, resulting in 30% overall cost reduction.
