Research at AMEXCI paves the way for reality

To keep up with the vastly grown AM industry, we aim at making relevant R&D - based on real-life applications, comprehensive technologies, and materials - accessible and applicable to key industries.

INTERNAL RESEARCH

In order to support R&D clients and strengthen our own knowledge base, AMEXCI's Research Team take lead by exploring the outer edge dimensions of areas that our clients face in their business advancements.
  • METAL AM
  • POLYMER AM
  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Optimizing Metal AM

AMEXCI’s R&D Team and Engineers always seek for improving the manufacturing qualities of AM components and processes and is currently conducting internal R&D projects in Metal AM, on EOS M290 and Aconity Midi machines.

Two important areas of the development are the surface roughness and geometrical features of components, where AMEXCI investigates and customizes tailor-made parameters.

Keeping track of Polymer AM

Polymer AM has long ago shifted from prototyping to industrial end products thanks to novel advancements regarding AM processes and materials. By keeping our Polymer AM knowledge up-to-date, we aim at finding solutions for polymer applications in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, and robotics. 

Improved Quality Assurance with Artificial Intelligence

AMEXCI is investigating and developing a Quality Assurance System using Deep Learning to add intelligence in the Additive Manufacturing workflow using the large quantities of data generated therein.

By collecting and correlating the data coming out of the AM process, the basic idea is to get the system to identify potential defects and define what those defects could be.

AMEXCI’s AI development goal is ultimately to create a much more resource efficient and reliable qualification process that eases a company’s way into serial production.

EXTERNAL RESEARCH

By participating in public projects and driving privately funded projects, we make AM advancements available and applicable to various industrial sectors while broadening our AM expertise.
  • Participation in Public Funded Projects
  • Co-Funded Projects / Corporate R&D collaborations

Together with external corporate R&D departments, in particular at our shareholding companies, we conduct co-funded Research projects where the main idea is to bring various business areas that share similar challenges but with different perspectives, together to learn from each other’s experiences and work towards a shared comprehensive output.

Multi-owner projects cover any aspect of AM, from cost optimization of an AM process to market research on one specific AM technology. Through multi-owner projects, AMEXCI and participating shareholder companies  join forces to get AM use even more applicable to any production case.

Network in Research and Academia

Through collaborations with different entities of research institutes, universities, and consultancy firms our research scope always stays on track.
