Replique presents Material Database for Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2023

Replique, provider of a decentralized 3D printing platform for safe and reliable manufacturing of industrial components, announces the launch of a comprehensive and open material database for 3D printing users at Formnext. With this, Replique (with the support of its material partners) is making material expertise available to the entire 3D printing community and simplifying the industrial use of additive manufacturing (AM) for companies. The new materials database can be examined for the first time at Replique’s booth in Hall 12.1, #A107.

Replique’s material database as a knowledge center for users and service providers

Careful and competent material selection is crucial for the feasibility of AM projects. Until now, however, this has been a manual and tedious research process. With Replique’s material database, users can now benefit from a user-friendly platform that allows them to select the ideal material for their individual applications. This not only saves time and costs, but also ensures the quality of the additively manufactured component in terms of material requirements. The features of the material database include various filter options, such as by technical data, standards and application fields. In addition, in the future it will enable quick access to reference cases and certificates without the need for time-consuming queries. The data sets are based on the partnerships established last year with well-known material manufacturers.

“Through our daily work with material data, we already have a valuable treasure trove of information internally, which we would now like to make available to the wider public,” said Dr. Henrike Wonneberger, COO and Co-Founder of Replique. “The launch of our material database represents another milestone in our mission to drive the industrialization of additive manufacturing and guide our customers through every step as a comprehensive solution provider.”

Open design enables cross-system use of the database

However, not only end users, but also printer manufacturers, service providers and other interested companies can use and supplement the database to enrich their work and services with sound material knowledge. The advantage here lies in the design of the database as an open system. Thus, the material data is not only directly available via the Replique platform, but in the future also as an API interface. All data is made available to any interested party behind a free password barrier.

The material database forms another integral part of Replique’s comprehensive ecosystem, which has also integrated other services such as additive marking for traceability of 3D-printed parts. This provides Replique users with a seamless end-to-end approach, with all the information and services they need available in one central location – the Replique platform.

Replique also aims to continuously expand the platform to include additional services in the future. Dr. Max Siebert, CEO and Co-Founder of Replique, emphasizes: “For all those who want to benefit from our platform or connect their own services, we are happy to help. Just visit us at Formnext in hall 12.1, booth A107. We look forward to exploring the diverse potential of 3D printing together and shaping the future of this groundbreaking technology.”
