FATHOM, an industry-leading advanced manufacturer with an expertise in 3D printing, announced its acquisition of a proprietary data analytics application software that retrieves, analyzes, and reports real-time additive manufacturing metrics.
“For the industry to take a step forward, major advances in software must be made,” said Rich Stump, Co-Founder and Principal at FATHOM. “Having immediate access to this level of analysis enables data-driven decision-making that will increase performance, reduce costs, and bring these advanced technologies to scale.”
“FATHOM is developing next-generation product data management (PDM) systems that will allow engineers to analyze the manufacturing data of every part that is 3D printed,” said Carlo Quiñonez, FATHOM’s Director of Research.
Acquiring the software from Addimation, Inc. builds on FATHOM’s existing experience with software development for digital fabrication.
Addimation, started by Karl D. D. Willis and Wesley Smith, was founded on a mission to solve the software challenges of additive manufacturing at scale.
“Our analytics helps improve production efficiency by providing visibility into the manufacturing process,” said Willis. “FATHOM shares the same goal of scalability. We’re delighted that FATHOM will be able to adopt our technology and take their production efficiency to new levels.”
