Ziggzagg, the Belgian 3D printing service provider and pioneer in adopting HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, invested in AM-Flow‘s broad range of additive manufacturing workflow automation solutions as the basis of its digital factory in Aalter, starting with the AM-VISION and the AM-SORT. In addition, both parties agreed to partner in the further development of factory automation, such as tracking & tracing, bin-picking, and packaging.

New and faster 3D printing technologies have enabled the production of medium to even large series of more than 200,000 products with AM for industrial applications. Design, order process, and 3D printing are completely digital, and now it is also necessary to fully automate cleaning, post-treatment, identification, sorting, transport, packaging, and labeling, reducing manual handling substantially if not completely. Investing in AM-Flow’s robotics technology and AI software, Ziggzagg is taking an important step in creating a fully automated Industry 4.0 Smart AM Factory. Ziggzagg invests in AM-Flow's range of AM workflow automation solutions with the AM-VISION and the AM-SORT “With our fleet of HP MJF 3D printers, we are getting close to the production speeds and costs of injection molding. By implementing AM-Flow’s workflow automation technology, we can realize a fully digital production at lower costs”; said Stijn Paridaens, CEO of Ziggzagg.

With this partnership, AM-Flow and Ziggzagg will focus on the automatic routing and tracking of all 3D-printed products throughout production. From batch to one-piece flow and vice versa. The benefits are substantial as Ziggzagg will obtain a complete overview of the flow of large numbers of customer orders, a reduction of errors, a reduction of costs, and shorter delivery times.

Stefan Rink, CEO of AM-Flow, commented, “Ziggzagg shows that Additive Manufacturing offers a serious alternative to traditional mass-production methods. To be able to further scale up this production at lower costs, the entire digital workflow must be optimally set up and repetitive, manual processes must be kept to a minimum. With our AM-Flow technology, we can offer them this end-to-end industrialization”.
