Additive Manufacturing Reaches New Heights with Secure Cloud-Based Platform.

In a German-Chinese project consortium, the Chair Digital Additive Production DAP at RWTH Aachen University has developed the architecture for a secure cloud-based platform that enables the encrypted and real-time transmission of production data for Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing. The results from the ProCloud3D project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), are intended to lay a foundation for secure decentralized Additive Manufacturing.

The industrial metaverse, smart services, and digitalization are mega-trends in the manufacturing industry into which Additive Manufacturing is able to integrate, transforming digital models into physical components.

A key function in efficiently implementing these concepts is the cloud. It offers the essential infrastructure needed for processing, storing, and securely sharing data in real-time, irrespective of location. The consortium behind the ProCloud3D project has made this infrastructure securely accessible for Additive Manufacturing.

From the end-user perspective, the Additive Manufacturing of components is increasingly being outsourced. To manufacture these components, the end-user must share their design data with a service provider.

Given that a digital design model is all that is needed to produce a physical copy, securing this process is crucial. The solution involves transferring production data layer by layer directly to the service provider’s PBF machine during the manufacturing process, a method also known as streaming.
