Our publications discuss challenges in additive manufacturing that are related to the develpment of new AM products. With a clear focus on specific fields of technology, we present solutions along the four stages of the development process design, construct, print and finish. Key support areas are the AMable Digital Data Chain and the AMable Services Arena.
AMable Training Booklet
Technologies and Applications
This training booklet provides an overview about additive manfacturing technologies and their associated application areas. It maps these technologies to materials and links to current standards.
AMable Guide to the Services Offerings
Insight into the offerings of AMable
This guide explains what you will find in the services arena, how it works and what will happen once you enter it.
AMable Technology Manufacturing Technology Comparison
Compare AM to injection moulding
This flyer compares the manufacturing technologies for a sample part. It shows how additive manufacturing is used for a plastics part and what needs to be done for injection moulding.
AMable Guide on Handling of Variability
How to foresee variability and respect it even at concept stage
Variability is still a major issue in additive manufacturing. We list influences on the part quality and give ideas on how to address these from early stages of the product evolution down to finishing a part.
AMable Guide to the Eco-System and Connection
How the AMable Eco-System works and how you can connect
We explain what the offerings inside the AMable Eco System are, what we offer and how you can engage with our experts.
AMable Guide to Authentication and Security
Guide with background information and tips to secure access to data
Data is key to business. From design to construction, in additive manufacturing data is generated along the product creation process. The people that deal with this data need to understand the threats and how to deal with them. That is why we created a guide that gives an insight into the technology that is available to protect data.
AMable Guide to Blockchain Applications in Additive Manufacturing
Insight into blockchain functionality and use cases
Blockchain has been discussed a lot in the press. The most prominent application is the bitcoin currency but also other sectors use this technology already. The guide explains a bit of the history, the basic functionality and implementations. All this under the lead question if blockchain is a benefit to additive manufacturing.
AMable Experiment Success Stories
See how the experiments progress
This document reports about the progress of the experiments. It starts with the challenge that the SMEs see, their starting point and how they develop towards their objectives.
AMable Product Ideas
Product ideas that need additive manufacturing to become alive
AMable supports the development of products that need AM to become alive. This booklet is a line up of the product ideas that receive support from the AMable partners.
