Given the rapid growth of the industrial additive manufacturing (i.e. 3D printing) industry, it has become increasingly difficult to keep track of all of the machines and materials that are on the market. Senvol has solved this problem with the launch of the Senvol Database, where users are able to search by over 30 fields, such as machine build size, material type, and material tensile strength. The sheer quantity and dynamic nature of the search fields enable users to search in powerful ways and to quickly get the information that they need. The database is online and free to access.
Senvol President Zach Simkin commented, “We're very excited by the Senvol Database because it's an extremely useful tool for everyone in the additive manufacturing industry. There has been a growing need for a tool like this and we’re pleased to provide the industry with a solution.”
The Senvol Database is used by a wide range of people - everyone from potential machine buyers who want to see what machines are on the market, to engineers who want to search for materials by specific material properties.
Some example uses of the database are:
- A service bureau searches to see all of the materials (both OEM and 3rd party) that are compatible with the machines that it owns;
- A design engineer with a specific application in mind searches for nylon materials that have a flexural modulus of at least 1,800 MPa;
- An industry financial analyst searches to learn about all of the metal AM machines that are available.
“Senvol very much values input and feedback from its user community,” Senvol President Annie Wang said. Wang continued, “It’s through the power of our user community that we are able to continuously improve the Senvol Database.”
