Recently, Bowman International, one of the UK's top bearing manufacturers, has formally established a partnership with automation software specialist AMFG. Bowman's 3D Printing R&D department will leverage AMFG's AI software platform to develop its 3D print bearing capabilities.
With existing MJF and SLS 3D printers, Bowman will design and 3D print end bearing parts to increase the load carrying capacity of the part by 70%. At the same time, AMFG's AI-driven production automation software effectively monitors the bearing production process. Provides technical assurance of the quality of Bowman's 3D printed bearings by automating production scheduling and printable data analysis and optimization to create custom parts digital catalogs.
Currently, Bowman is at the forefront of the bearing manufacturing industry, and they hope to achieve even greater breakthroughs through 3D printing and software technology.
