SLM Solutions Software out of Austria is set to this year begin selling a new package to improve workflow in AM, SLM Solutions’ Richard Grylls said At RAPID + TCT in Pittsburgh. “It will help to streamline the entire workflow–from the initial idea from the designer to geting it into the machine in one piece.” He also talks about how OEMs can help a customer quality and certify metal parts. Grylls also discusses how selective laser melting is helping to speed up metal AM. And he gives an overview of process monitoring capabilities SLM Solutions is showing at the AM tech show, as well as emerging applications for SLM’s machines (serial production of components in aircraft, space and automotive applications, for example). Lastly, he explains why SLM has a monthly user group meeting. Managing things as “a lone wolf” is a bad idea, he warns.
