About The Machine Health Module

Machine Health utilizes built-in sensors to monitor the performance of production fleet machines. Simple thresholding, standard WACO Run Rules, and advanced statistical analysis are employed to understand and track variance throughout production. Machine Health identifies sudden changes, steady trends,  and non-conformance of key parameters of the machine environment; a minimal requirement for quality.​

Standardization is core to Machine Health. Unifying units and terminology across machine makes and models allows users to understand variance within a build, across machines, and throughout production runs. This standardization means a single interface for build evaluation, removing multiple softwares and cumbersome spreadsheets previously required to complete qualification.

Key Features:

  • Accept and chart log files from all OEMs​
  • Standardize units and terminology across OEMs​
  • Real-time monitoring and automated detection​
  • Customized alerting criteria for each sensing type​
  • Comprehensive reporting and data-driven insights into production processes​
  • Enhance confidence via sensor fusion with additional PrintRite Modules

  • Consistency across machine make and model​
  • Standardizes data for improved comparability

OEM independent – works across industrial AM machines and materials​

  • Connect to existing machine tool infrastructure​
  • OPC UA complicitly reads data directly from your machine​
  • Analyze data streaming from currently installed sensor suites
Trend Monitoring

Comprehensive Evaluation – assess and monitor production deficiencies​

  • Assess machine performance base on environmental sensors​
  • Comprehend major issues for machine operation and overall reliability​
  • Interrogate builds in real time or post-build​
  • Identify Special and Common Cause variations using standard analytic run rules​​

Trend Monitoring – Identify changes and improve predictability​

  • Evaluate part-to-part, build-to-build, or machine-to-machine​
  • Compare trends throughout production runs and across your fleet​
  • Identify patterns to anticipate and prevent failures​
  • Monitor long-term trends to optimize process parameters

Acceptance Criteria –thresholds for production

  • Receive real time alerts when variation of quality metrics are detected​
  • Defined quality limits ensure consistency and repeatability​
  • Customizable CTQ metrics boil down to Pass/Fail

Quality Reporting – automated records for regulatory compliance reporting​

  • Simplified and customized formats with your CTQ metrics​
  • Auto-populate to meet your regulatory requirements​
  • Provides transparency, accountability, and a complete audit trail for quality control

Sensor Fusion – communicates with other PrintRite3D modules for holistic quality​

  • Correlates with layerwise machine health data​
  • Pixel correlation between cameras and melt pool data to determine root cause​
  • Quantify deviations using statistical modeling

Open Architecture – full control over the data​​

  • Your data is your data​
  • Easily exported raw or analyzed data sets​
  • Customizable data management and security

Dashboarding – Critical to quality (CTQ) metrics​​​

  • Quick look summary of key metrics​
