“Printing with steel is very interesting and even more interesting is the data generated in such a process,” says Dr. Claus Lenz, co-founder of Cognition Factory.

Wire-arc additive manufacturing generates countless numbers of such data. “To correlate the high-frequency process parameters with image data of individual printed layers, to process the data efficiently, to detect errors in the manufacturing process, and to make predictions about what will actually happen next – that’s fascinating and challenging.
