Detroit. It’s hard to imagine an American city that’s more symbolic of great design and advanced manufacturing methods. From its roots as the center for the automotive industry for many decades, through to the green shoots of modern manufacturing that prove the city still has its manufacturing mojo, Detroit is the perfect location to meet and discuss the most recent advances in digital manufacturing.
Detroit is experiencing a resurgence fueled by new developments, investments, and young manufacturing success stories. The Comeback City has experienced more than $13 billion in new investments across 200+ projects since 2006. Detroit also has an exploding startup scene with 35 active venture-backed startups.
This year, Identify3D will be participating at the RAPID + TCT conference in several capacities, all with a focus on helping manufacturers confidently implement a standards-based secure digital manufacturing process flow from engineering studio to production and beyond. Here’s where we’ll be:
- Identify3D is exhibiting on booth #1459. Drop by to see the latest updates of our suite of tools that provides a proven underpinning to your digital manufacturing: Identify3D Protect™, Identify3D Manage™, Identify3D Enforce™, and Identify3D Trace™. At the show, we’re also highlighting our expanding network of software and hardware partners — read on for more.
- Partner presence: SLM Solutions booth #1003. Identify3D software integrates smoothly with SLM Solutions’ current workflows and offers a new level of control and security. Manufacturers can implement different strategies to limit the number of times a part can be printed, set an expiration date on the design, target specific machines, constrain parameters, and automatically delete files from machines after a build. Validity checks allow an audit trail from design to production.
- Partner presence: Renishaw booth #827. At the show we’re announcing an expanded partnership with Renishaw. Following successful pilot projects, Identify3D’s software solution can now be implemented with Renishaw AM machines. Because the data package can define the machine parameters, a part can be manufactured repeatably according to initial certification, independent of location and time. For example, manufacturers will now be able to distribute the production of spare parts, moving machines closer to the point and time of use, rather than transporting and storing a part across long distances.
- Partner focus: Siemens PLM booth #1403. Identify3D continues to expand its partnership with Siemens through its integration into several PLM products. In addition, on May 23 at 10:15 a.m., Identify3D and Siemens Gas and Power will present “Secure Distributed Spare Parts Production for Power Generation” as part of the event’s Expeditionary/ Distributed Manufacturing track.
We’d love to meet you at RAPID! Here’s who to contact to set up a one-on-one meeting:
