COVID-19 HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR SECURE DISTRIBUTED ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

ACTUAL GLOBAL INSIGHTS
ABOUT ON-DEMAND MANUFACTURING

The frantic global search for rapid deliveries of masks and other protective gear, provided two clear insights.

RESEARCH SESSIONS - TOPICS

ResearchSessionsTekengebied 1

Secure Data Transfer (building Digital Thread in AM)

The Digital Thread—a single, seamless strand of data that stretches from the initial design to the finished part—can help scale and enhance AM capabilities. Understand challenges and strategies for building a DTAM in various industrial, AM-driven applications, based on one’s strategic goals for AM.

Blockchain - underpinning Secure Data Transfer in AM

How could blockchain be utilized in Distributed Manufacturing to support supply chain scale and product innovation and add value to the digital thread? End-to-end Trust in Ownership (IP & OEM rights), in Quality (Industry-Grade validation & certification) and in Transactions thanks to Blockchain.

STRATEGIC PARTNERS

The Alliance is initiated by MAEKIT together with a number of renowned corporate partners. The aim is to form an industry partnership bringing together technology providers and end-product companies to accelerate the adoption of Secure Distributed AM. 

Based on a Memorandum of Understanding or a Letter of Intent, MAEKIT agreed close partnerships with a number of industry parties to develop a global ecosystem of high quality 3D manufacturing facilities to securely and efficiently deliver 3D printed products anywhere, anytime. 

The Strategic Partners are part of the Steering Committee, in addition to selected research experts. Decision-relevant issues such as the coordination of the Partner Program, the choice of topics for working groups and analyses are discussed and coordinated here.

Industry & Research Partners

Only by seeking commitment and agreement with most industry players on the nature of the Alliance, can the development of Secure Distributed AM be accelerated to support true compliance across the global supply chain. So, the Alliance Partnership is open to any company or organisation that supplies or uses technology for Secure Distributed Additive Manufacturing systems and applications. Alliance Partners benefit from the Partner Program which is designed to accelerate success in Secure Distributed AM development.
The charter of the Alliance is to develop specifications, standards and solutions that drive harmonisation and interoperability for businesses worldwide. The Alliance will be a global community of partners made of leaders, adopters, innovators, developers, and businesses with a shared vision to create enterprise-ready solutions and a global on-demand manufacturing ecosystem for the benefit of everyone.  

Collaboration is the name of the game

The aim of the Alliance is to expand the number of Partners rapidly to provide a collaborative clout and diversity to enable to be at the cutting edge of the development of Secure Distributed AM.

Collaboration is the name of the game

The aim of the Alliance is to expand the number of Partners rapidly to provide a collaborative clout and diversity to enable to be at the cutting edge of the development of Secure Distributed AM.

Principles of Collaboration

All Partners adopt the following principles regarding their roles within the Alliance:
a. Develop and seek to achieve full potential of the goals of the Alliance. Share information relevant to the goals and aim of the Alliance and work collaboratively to identify solutions and opportunities
b. Adhere to industry requirements and best practices. Comply with applicable laws and standards; and
c. Act in good faith to support achievement of a secure distributed AM (‘the goal and aim of the Alliance’) and compliance with these principles.
