Siemens and GENERA join forces to accelerate production DLP

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

GENERA, a company developing highly automated resin-based additive manufacturing technologies, and Siemens are cooperating in a comprehensive partnership to accelerate the adoption of Digital Light Processing technology for large-scale production of industrial applications. The collaboration will touch many aspects of GENERA`s business and is going to benefit end-users in a variety of ways.

The cooperation involves the integration of Siemens technology in GENERA digital light processing systems, including operational technology, information technology, and automation. In addition, GENERA digital light processing solutions will be fully integrated into Siemens simulation and planning tools for a factory design. For example, Siemens Digital Twin tools are now used to simulate all combinations of the GENERA print and post-processing machines G2 and F2 and global plant planning, enabling fast and reliable decisions for factory planning.

“We are proud of our partnership with Siemens to enhance the integration of our innovative and unique additive manufacturing production process for industrial applications. With the help of simulations, our customers can now precisely determine the costs of the components and the output of our systems and carry out well-founded and comprehensive production planning. This gives our customers security in the use of our technology and clearly shows the advantages and cost-effectiveness of our process”, explained Dr. Klaus Stadlmann, Founder and CEO of GENERA.

The two companies will also be working on specific industrial-scale projects involving data handling and environmental, health and safety topics. For example, both companies work on designing the clean and safe large-scale production of electronic plug-in connectors made with a recently approved innovative UL 94 V-0 photoresin from specialty chemicals company ALTANA. This first prototype in a series of flame-retardant materials can also be post-processed with demineralized water instead of potentially environmentally harmful solvent-based washing fluids.

Siemens and GENERA will work together to promote the benefits of GENERA`s digital light processing technology as a fully automated key technology solution for industrial applications. “Digital Light Processing has a huge potential for the clean and safe production of industrial products. Compared to many other AM technologies it demands less energy for the operation which is beneficial for the users and helps to accelerate its use in various industry branches. We are proud to collaborate with GENERA on the industrialization of this technology”, says Dr. Sonja Wolfrum, Senior Key Expert Additive Manufacturing at Siemens Digital Industries.
