Renishaw is collaborating with Identify3D, a developer of digital supply chain software, on a secure, end-to-end digital manufacturing process. Identify3D will provide data protection coupled with contractual and manufacturing licensing from design to production on Renishaw additive manufacturing systems.

By securing digital data in the engineering phase, the technology enables users to protect their digital intellectual property (IP), enforce production rules and provide traceability in the digital supply chain.

“Industrializing additive manufacturing requires that we manage and control a complex chain of processes to deliver consistent, traceable and qualified parts,” says Marc Saunders, Director of Global Solutions Centers at Renishaw. “Secure transmission and controlled use of digital IP is critical to enable agile Industry 4.0 supply chains.”

The two companies are currently working together on pilot projects for several manufacturing customers. They say the collaboration will benefit sectors such as aerospace, automotive, military and medical devices to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing.
