Desktop Metal launches software for accessing real-time dataDesktop Metal Inc, a global company providing additive manufacturing (AM) technologies for mass production, has launched Live Monitor. A software application that provides useful real-time data from 3-D printing systems to improve efficiency and management of one printing system or a full fleet and part of Desktop Metal’s the Live Suite package of software, Live Monitor provides easy access to system data from any web browser at any time.

The software has dashboards to manage a fleet or drill down on 3-D printer or furnace performance in ways that assist capacity planning and maintenance management. Real-time information includes job and event status, time reporting, and consumable usage, among other key metrics.

Italy-based Aidro, a pioneer in the volume production of next-generation hydraulic and fluid-power systems through metal AM and traditional manufacturing technologies, has been a beta tester of Live Monitor for its Desktop Metal Shop System and Furnace for the past year.

Valeria Tirelli, president and CEO of Aidro — a subsidiary of Desktop Metal — said: “Live Monitor is an essential tool for keeping the most important process variables under control and giving customers with critical parts, such as those in the energy industry, visibility and traceability of AM part production. The variables are visible, customisable, and recordable and this is the basis for having a qualified process.”

Live Monitor will be offered to users of the Studio, Shop, and Production System printers, along with Desktop Metal-branded furnaces. The feature will also be rolled out in the future to users of other Desktop Metal and Team DM equipment sold under the ExOne, Desktop Health, and ETEC brands.
