Hyundai Motor Corporation, a world-renowned car manufacturer, was facing challenges in managing their Additive Manufacturing (AM) production. The company had to schedule different build jobs, maintain an overview of all build statuses, and ensure efficient information flow among all stakeholders. Previously, they relied on Excel sheets to manage the RP production status, which required frequent manual updates and dissemination of information. Tracking the number of parts produced, savings, and other operational data required manually generated reports. Machine operators also had to invest significant work hours to manually manage the operating plan for each machine and adjust and communicate the planning as soon as changes occurred.

About The Customer
Hyundai Motor Corporation is a globally recognized car manufacturer that focuses on producing cars with superior performance and safety. The company relies on 3D printing to create new products in a fast and cost-effective manner, and experiment with designs with almost no design limitations or material waste. However, managing their Additive Manufacturing (AM) production was a challenge due to the need to schedule different build jobs, maintain an overview of all build statuses, and ensure efficient information flow among all stakeholders.
Hyundai Motor Corporation adopted Materialise Streamics, a production management system that gathers all kinds of information (order info, machine info, part info etc.) and automatically updates the production status in real time. The system also extracts customized reports about production, sales, management, and quality. When the production schedule changes, managers and machine operators can easily adapt the planning in real time. The information is no longer spread across a web of mails, excel files, phone calls, and data sheets, but stored in one central database that connects data preparation, production, post-processing and management. Everyone can view the production planning and status of each machine, and the requestor is automatically informed by the system once a build is completed.

Predictive Maintenance for Industrial Chillers
For global leaders in the industrial chiller manufacturing, reliability of the entire production process is of the utmost importance. Chillers are refrigeration systems that produce ice water to provide cooling for a process or industrial application. One of those leaders sought a way to respond to asset performance issues, even before they occur. The intelligence to guarantee maximum reliability of cooling devices is embedded (pre-alarming). A pre-alarming phase means that the cooling device still works, but symptoms may appear, telling manufacturers that a failure is likely to occur in the near future. Chillers who are not internet connected at that moment, provide little insight in this pre-alarming phase.
