Read on to learn how FORTIS is impacting the widespread adoption and success of 3D printing and other advanced manufacturing technologies by ensuring the security, integrity, and reliability of the data stored and transferred.
Enforces Quality Control and Data Integrity
Additive manufacturing relies upon the integrity of digital design files (CAD models) that guide the 3D printing process, preventing unauthorized modifications or corruption.
By maintaining the quality and accuracy of design data with FORTIS, 3D printing can produce objects as intended, reducing the risk of flawed or defective prints.
Verifies Material Properties
Data assurance with FORTIS can also play a role in verifying the authenticity and quality of the materials used in 3D printing.
Ensuring that the material data matches specified standards is essential for achieving desired performance and durability in printed objects.
Provides Immutability and Transparency
FORTIS integrates blockchain technology with 3D printing to enhance data assurance by creating an immutable and transparent ledger of all transactions.
This can include design file sharing, printing parameters, and material sourcing, ensuring an auditable trail for quality control and intellectual property protection.
Protects Intellectual Property
Data assurance with FORTIS can help safeguard intellectual property rights in the 3D printing space.
For companies or individuals who share their designs, ensuring the data’s security and integrity is crucial to prevent unauthorized copying, distribution, or modification of their work.
Example 3D Print Applications
The convergence of Industry 4.0 and web3 is changing how businesses interact. Margin pressures are driving traditional industrial companies to enter digital markets where cost of goods sold is minimized and operating margins are higher. FORTIS enables Militaries and airlines to increase up-time and reduce costs.
Companies have new and legacy data to consume in new applications. The quality of the outcome will be determined by the veracity of the data, so you can feel confident that FORTIS provides data assurance as you move both types of data through your enterprise to application, whether AI, ML, or decision making analytics.
During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we created a blockchain-enabled manufacturing solution to produce high-demand spare parts for critical medical equipment. In addition, the team designed and developed an innovative ventilation solution while on contract to the US DoD via a DPA Title III contract.
