AM Explorer is a visualization software package that makes it possible to fuse, explore and analyze simulation, monitoring and post build part analysis data from the metal additive manufacturing process. 

AM Explorer - Designed for metal AM

AM Explorer is a visualization software package designed specifically for users working with layer-based metal additive manufacturing. 
 
AM Explorer makes it possible to fuse, explore and analyze simulation, monitoring and post build part analysis data collected in the manufacturing process. 
The goal for AM Explorer is to make it easier for users to explore and understand process data and thereby reduce manufacturing costs, improve quality and accelerate the application development.
 

Transform monitoring data to insights 

AM Explorer is data and vendor agnostic and can import a large variety of industry standard formats.

Eg. CAD Files, simulation data, powder bed images, optical tomography, melt pool, system sensor data, CT scans, metrology data etc. 

AM Explorer can aggregate and fuse data in different formats and types in the same visual environment, both in 2D and 3D. 

With help of an powerful but intuitive UI you can explore the data and gain new insights. 

Understand your AM process and save resources

AMEXCI AB, Sweden

"At AMEXCI we are bringing AM applications from design preparation to testing, generating different data types along the workflow. We believe that Interspectral will be of great value to visualize this digital thread in one place on real time and to compare one data type to another."

Maud ChidiacProgram Manager AI at AMEXCI AB, Karlskoga, Sweden

Fraunhofer ILT, Germany

"One of the main challenges is the consolidation of different data sources and types in order to increase the process understanding and to derive the next development steps in additive manufacturing. We believe AM Explorer covers this need and we now look forward to access and use the software as part of Interspectral's early access program."

Talu Ünal-Saewe, Digitization in Laser Material Deposition, Fraunhofer ILT

Advanced Manufacturing Research Center, UK

"AM Explorer will enable users to visualise, interpret and analyse multiple data sets from a variety of AM workflows. This is an important step in the adoption of AM as a standard method of manufacture.

As users, we want to be able to access data on demand along the critical path, this will aid in factors such as troubleshooting, data traceability and cut down the cycle time for analysis. Our collaboration with Interspectral will be invaluable for the creation of new digital workflows for AM."

Abdul Haque, Technical Lead – Metal AM, AMRC

Siemens Energy

"The first step in enabling far reaching intricate designs, further pushing the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing is to see and understand what really has been printed."

Andreas Graichen, Head of Additive Manufacturing Center of Competence at Siemens Energy.

Leibniz IFW, Germany

"We are experimentally based scientists and cannot wait to connect our process data with the results we gather in our laboratories. As the AM Explorer is open for different data types (CT, microscopical sectioning), we see many possibilities to speed up our evaluation processes and, thus, save valuable time which will be used to dive deeper into the material."

Dr.-Ing. Tobias Gustmann, Head of Additive Manufacturing Technologies, Leibniz IFW Dresden,
