Siemens and Identify3D have partnered to provide IP protection, manufacturing repeatability and part traceability for industrial designers. Identify3D, a software platform for the digital supply chain, is said to enable a secure digital supply chain throughout the manufacturing process. 

With the Identify3D system, industrial designers can protect design data, assign enforceable business and manufacturing rules, and facilitate secure digital data distribution. The software is said to provide production integrity from the design stage through actual output so that all parts produced are made to specification and within an allowable quantity.

The solution resulting from the partnership offers:

  • Part design encryption with Identify3D Protect integrated into Siemens NX or Teamcenter
  • Encrypted design stored in Teamcenter
  • Encrypted design licensed via Identify3D Manage with a set of business and manufacturing policies to a specific Siemens Sinumerik 840D sl on a CNC machine
  • Shop Floor Connect for Teamcenter, which pulls encrypted design from Teamcenter and places it onto the CNC
  • Design decrypted for manufacturing by Identify3D Enforce running on the CNC
  • Transaction logging in Identify3D Trace for specific part traceability
  • The option of point-to-point or blockchain use

According to the companies, the platform combination can form the basis of a systematic part monitoring at a manufacturing company or design enterprise working with outside and offshore supply chain partners.
