AME-3D Picks AMFG to Fortify Vacuum Casting and AM Production
In AMFG, AME-3D discovered a solution suited to their operative needs.
February 7, 2023
AMFG announces the start of a new partnership with product development and prototyping business AME-3D. Through the implementation of AMFG’s manufacturing execution system (MES) and workflow automation software, AME-3D will continue to strategically reinforce its core operations to scale production.
AME-3D has been providing design and prototyping services for 26 years, particularly within the specialist niche of vacuum casting for production, alongside reaction injection molding casting. The company also offers 3D printing services.
Upon receiving their financial backing, AME-3D identified MES and workflow software as a strategic investment. Specifically, the company was seeking to improve their quotation speed by reducing manual input.
In AMFG, AME-3D discovered a solution suited to their operative needs. Through its quotation automation feature, the software enabled a reduction in labor time and afforded firmer control over quotation quality. Additionally, AMFG’s digital catalog functionality allowed AME-3D’s customers to order from a list of preconfigured CAD files.
Following the agreement, AME-3D and AMFG have worked closely together towards software implementation, including a process of dissecting the company’s business framework and configuring the software to maximize its application’s benefits. Now in place, the company is already noticing operational improvements.
Alongside conventional 3D printing applications, traditionally catered for by AMFG, AME-3D have incorporated vacuum casting within its AMFG solution.
“AMFG has a lot of capability packed into the software. I was specifically looking for a solution that enabled faster quoting, an online quoting platform and production management, and AMFG has all of these,” says Rich Proctor, managing director of AME Group, “There is more that we can do with the software as we get further into the integrations with other parts of our business too.”
Adding to this, Matt Martin, VP EMEA at AMFG, says: “At AMFG, we take great pride in aligning with high-growth organizations who are carving the path forward in additive. AME Group’s ambitions and demands for a solution were ambitious and well thought-out, but it’s great to observe the clear demonstration of value that AME-3D have derived from AMFG in both their customer-facing improvements and back office process efficiency.”
