Take control of your supply chain with CT scanning and 3D printing
85% of supply chains faced interruptions in 2020. How resilient are your operations?
During the COVID era, manufacturers have been faced with historic supply chain disruptions, along with wide swings in pricing and inventory. Additive manufacturing offers a way to in-source production and reduce risk, but it requires a CAD model of every part—a major barrier to manufacturers that rely on thousands or millions of parts, many of which were designed years ago.
Lumafield's X-ray CT scanning technology closes that gap by digitizing both internal and external part features in detail. Paired with Desktop Metal's range of additive manufacturing solutions, it's now possible to quickly scan and reproduce critical metal and polymer parts in-house, bringing your supply chain back under control.
Introducing the Supply Chain Resilience package from Lumafield and Desktop Metal
Lumafield and Desktop Metal are here to help. Reserve a Lumafield X-Ray CT system and a Desktop Metal 3D printer between May 1, 2022 and July 1, 2022 and we'll kick-start your new digital workflow by performing 15 free scans at our facility while you wait for delivery of your CT scanner. You'll get mesh extracts of your parts suitable for 3D printing, as well as extended application engineering support to make the most of this groundbreaking technology.
Lumafield’s CT platform digitizes parts with X-rays, capturing both external and internal features in detail. Voyager, Lumafield's powerful cloud-based software, is included with every Neptune scanner. In addition to producing mesh exports for 3D printing, it also offers intuitive visualizations and AI-driven analysis tools that pinpoint manufacturing flaws before they become major problems.
Supply Chain Resilience package benefits:
- Hold your place in line for delivery of a Neptune CT scanner as soon as possible
- 15 free CT scans performed at our facility while you wait for delivery of your CT scanner
- Application engineering support to facilitate mesh extraction for 3D printing workflows
To activate the Supply Chain Resilience package, place a $1,000 refundable deposit for a Neptune CT scanner, then share an invoice dated between May 1, 2022 and July 1, 2022 showing the purchase of a qualified Desktop Metal system from the list at right.
Desktop Metal’s software and 3D printers can then turn those mesh models back into high-quality metal or polymer parts, making it possible to seamlessly replace legacy manufacturing processes with in-house 3D printing.
Desktop Metal printers included in this offering are:
- All metal printers, including the Desktop Metal Shop System™, which was built as a turnkey solution for smaller enterprises and is offered in a 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-liter package. Also included: the Studio System™, X-Series and all Production System™ models, which includes the P-1 and P-50 – the latter of which is the world’s fastest system to 3D print metal parts at scale.
- All ETEC DLP polymer 3D printing systems, which includes the D4K, P4K, Envision One XL or Xtreme 8K, which offer a wide range of price points, build volumes and potential polymer material sets, including elastomers, hard plastics, high temperature plastics, and biocompatible materials.
