PrintSyst.ai, an Israel-based startup, has announced the launch of its next-generation proprietary AI engine for 3D printing. The software, called 3DP AI-Perfecter, is a pre-printing evaluation tool based on artificial intelligence technologies. The new program is designed to enable industries like aerospace, defense and automotive to fully exploit the benefits of additive manufacturing by improving part consistency and reliability while also reducing labor, as well as production time and costs.
Since its founding, PrintSyst.ai has set out to solve a key challenge for industrial AM users: the cost and labor-intensive pre-printing process. Typically, before a part is printed, it must undergo an analysis which is conducted by highly skilled engineers. This process is time consuming and can create challenges for a company in terms of meeting lead times and regulations. Additionally, because of the manual, non-automated nature of this process, there is room for error, and a high average of parts reportedly turn out dysfunctional.
To address this, PrintSyst.ai has developed a new AI-driven software tool that facilitates the transition from pre-printing to actual production. In this journey, the company has relied on the expertise of its founders, both of whom are 3rd generation in the 3D printing industry and 3D printing mentors.
Itamar Yona, PrintSyst CEO, commented on the new software, explaining that 3DP AI-Perfecter enables “Instant, automatic and accurate pre-printing part analysis, that could save more than 99% of the preparation time and cost. It is a scalable tool and using it is extremely user friendly and simple. We support multiple 3D printing technologies and our customers enjoy automatic AI-based printing recommendations. Moreover, as part of our overall customer-centric approach, we are providing customers with a simple-yet-clever dashboard that could be used to monitor our solution’s impact on their printing process and also might be used to further scale and optimize our customers’ operations. This dashboard can, of course, be customized to specific customer needs.”
Noam Taube, PrintSyst’s VP Marketing & Sales, added: “PrintSyst’s solution is already used by customers worldwide. We are thrilled by the opportunity to assist our customers in overcoming a significant pain point in the 3D printing process and thus enabling them to become more efficient and ultimately further grow their business. We believe that 3D printers that operate in highly regulated, industrial markets such as aerospace, defense and automotive would gain the most value from using our 3DP AI-Perfecter, and are looking forward to closely collaborating with them.”
To learn more about this topic and 3DP AI-Perfecter, the company is hosting a webinar called “3D Printing ScA.I.lability – using Artificial Intelligence to drive Automation & Optimization”, which will be held on July 30, 2020. Last year, readers may remember that Printsyst.ai (then Printsyst) was granted £600,000 with British AM software company DNA.am to develop an integrated AI solution to scale and optimize additive manufacturing in the aerospace sector.
