POWDER MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

Manage inventory and traceability of your powders

CHALLENGES

From multinational companies operating large fleets of machines to small printshops or labs, keeping track of powder is a common challenge. With technology such as AM where the final material is created at the same time as the part is being printed, the importance of knowing everything about the powder is key, especially for highly regulated industries such as medical or aerospace.

Facilitate inventory management

Knowing what is in stock at any given moment can be complicated.

Improve genealogy

Powder is volatile and hard to keep track of. Generating traceability reports can take hours and is not always accurate.

Avoid manual mistake

Mixing powders that do not have the same lots or the same recycling numbers. Manual errors can become very costly.

ACTIONS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

QUICKLY IDENTIFY BOXES/CONTAINERS WITH QR CODE SCANNING

Each powder boxes/containers/machines have a QR Code stuck on them allowing mobile scanning with the 3DTRUST mobile application. The QR Code acts as a serial number enabling unique identification powder boxes/containers which is saving time for the operators.

PERFORM ACTIONS WITH MOBILE DEVICES

Once a box is scanned, operators have the possibility to perform multiple actions: Sieving, Mixing, Weighting, Taking a sample, Loading… Each action is digitally recorded saving time for the operators and reducing risks of errors. Having digital actions ensures that the powder is always used in accordance with your internal guidelines (such as storage conditions, cycle limitations, and mix control).

POWDER DASHBOARD FOR A QUICK OVERVIEW

At a glimpse, users are able to view how much powder remains for each material type and identify if the powder is ready for production or needs to be sieved. Overall the dashboard shows what needs to be done e.g. you need to order additional powder, you need to sieve IN718 powder.

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

Sort easily powder by cycle, lots, material, mass, type… Perform bulk actions in 3 clicks (mixing, creating containers, sampling…)

DETAILED GENEALOGY FOR EACH POWDER

Each action is digitally recorded creating a detailed genealogy for each powder. Users are able to navigate between actions and find powder’s parents and children. Thus if a sample testing result is not satisfying, users can identify quickly all the prints that have been performed with this powder. Moreover, users can generate automatically detailed traceability reports for their customers.
