Security, traceability and control in additive manufacturing, with Renishaw and Identify3D


CATEGORY: 3D Services BRAND: Renishaw

To showcase how its customers can keep their additive manufacturing (AM) part data secure, global engineering technologies company, Renishaw, showed its work with Identify3D at RAPID + TCT, North America’s most influential AM event.

From the 21st to 23rd of May 2019 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan, USA, visitors to RAPID + TCT could see demonstrations of Identify3D’s software encryption package on booths 827 and 1459.


Since 2017, Renishaw has been working with Identify3D on implementing their digital supply chain solution to develop an end-to-end secure digital AM process. This means that users of Renishaw’s metal AM systems will be able to secure all part data, protect their intellectual property, enforce production rules and access complete traceability records.


Renishaw’s work with Identify3D aims to ensure integrity throughout the digital supply chain, which is essential for quality assurance (QA), quality control (QC) and historical reporting. This offers major benefits for the aerospace, defence, power generation, automotive and medical industries, and will help broaden the industrial use of AM.
