Dimensionics Density to showcase Automated Density Determination Technology at Formnext 2023

Dimensionics Density, which last year established itself as an indispensable technology for the automated validation of AM parts by determining their density in production environments, will be present at Formnext 2023 in Frankfurt, Hall 11 Stand C61.

Formnext 2023 marked the commercial breakthrough for Dimensionics Density – the sister company of automation, quality and manufacturing expert Dimensionics – of its automated density determination technology. It is now recommended as the optimal solution for scenarios where density statements are needed frequently and quickly for a large number of AM parts. This can simplify machine approvals and reduce quality assurance costs.

Philipp Pruesse, Head of Sales at Dimensionics Density, says: “We are so excited to bring our technology to Formnext this year, and we will have a machine running on our booth to show exactly how it works. Density determination plays a crucial role in AM produced parts as it directly impacts their mechanical properties, structural integrity, and performance. As AM technology becomes increasingly integrated into production scenarios, the need for automated, non-destructive density determination methods becomes paramount. Automation ensures efficiency and scalability, enabling quick assessments of multiple AM parts within production cycles. Non-destructiveness is essential to avoid compromising the integrity of valuable components, and it allows for real-time quality control. Furthermore, AM often produces complex and intricate geometries, leading to multiple parts with varying shapes and sizes. Hence, a density determination method must be versatile enough to handle diverse AM parts rapidly, ensuring consistent quality and reliability across the entire production line.”

Prior to the introduction of Dimensionics Density technology, manufacturers had to rely on alternative solutions such as micrographs, computed tomography (CT) or the Archimedes method, each of which had varying accuracies and success rates in defect detection.

Dimensionics Density combines the Archimedes method for density determination with state-of-the-art automation technology. Automated part handling minimizes human influence, while environmental conditions are detected by climate sensors and included in the measurement. The technology is also non-destructive, making it ideal for dynamic AM production environments.

Pruesse continues, “We invite customer engagement at Formnext, and would be eager to fix up meetings with interested parties so we can discuss the specifics of customer applications, and discuss in detail how our density determination solution can help streamline the AM process chain. We live and breathe AM, and totally believe in its disruptive capabilities, and the way that it can democratise, streamline and add innovation and agility to modern day manufacturing. As such we are proud to be at the forefront of automated validation solutions for AM part production, and look forward to meeting our AM colleagues in Germany.”

Interested parties who would like to schedule a meeting with a Dimensionics Density representative at Formnext can coordinate this in advance and see the innovative density determination technology in action at booth C61.
