    STEP 3

    Guided implementation and ongoing support

    We work with you every step of the way to provide technical guidance and broad industry experience to help you maximize your investment in Additive Manufacturing technologies. The TRACEam process will increase your manufacturing efficiency, improve your workforce development, and provide your customers with the piece of mind that you are producing repeatable and traceable parts.

  • The Benefits of the TRACEam Process


    Track Your Qualification Process

    TRACEam helps your team organize your production process into an easy-to-follow structure. The tool tracks every step of the process, including design, materials, printing, post-processing and inspection. TRACE is constantly updated to incorporate industry-recognized standards, serving as another check to ensure your team adheres to best practices and shortening the time it takes to qualify parts and vendors.


    Manage Your


    The tool is specifically designed to enable efficient and targeted communication among your production team members at each phase of the manufacturing process. Real-time updates can help identify downstream issues before money is wasted on materials, machine resources or employee time, and TRACE builds accountability into each step of the process.


    Easy Reporting and


    TRACEam makes it easy for you to compile all of the data that you're tracking into simple, professional reports with the click of one button. This information can help streamline the traceability of your parts at every stage of the lifecycle, making it easy to identify issues, track part inventory and meet reporting demands for any end-users of your 3D Printed parts.

    TRACE Introductory Webinar

    Managing your technical Additive Manufacturing data can be challenging, especially when you're required to follow an ever evolving list of manufacturing standards and specifications. We developed TRACE to help streamline that process. This webinar will showcase some of the basic functionality of the tool and how it might fit into your manufacturing ecosystem.

    Using TRACE to Qualify your AM Materials and Processes

    One of the biggest challenges that we see as companies are making the jump from prototyping to production is ensuring that their processes and materials are qualified. This entails a lot of hard work to first identify what variables are critical as well as making sure you have an easy way to review that data. This webinar discusses how TRACE can help you walk through that process.
