Part Identification from Finland - SelectAM changing the game!

A Finnish start-up, SelectAM has launched first ever free-tier to help accelerate the adoption of Additive Manufacturing (AM), also referred to as industrial 3D printing. Finding suitable and economically viable use cases has been a real roadblock and de-motivator for companies and engineers looking into the world of AM.

"Based on the data from our research and customer projects, a small percentage of the parts that run through our process appears as a viable business case as they are today. This means we're helping our users to focus on the right parts and applications. In addition, since we also expand our assessment to supply chain critical parts and future business cases after redesigning the part or assembly for AM, a larger business case percentage is achievable.


Our algorithm is tackling knowledge gaps and blocks, and we do it completely technology agnostic and securely in our web app (data saved only locally in your browser). We aim to help engineers, OEMs, design agencies, and R&D departments alike to validate and estimate which parts would make good candidates for AM and assist them with the best selection of the applied AM technology.

We have heavily focused on embedding features like nesting, slicing, automated material mapping, and AM-process selection - which makes the business case calculations accurate and realistic. Also, if you have already 3D printers in-house, those can be embedded into the digital workflow to fine-tune outcomes.

What's next for SelectAM? We've launched the free tier of our SW for people to use and find long-term wins quickly, and we look forward to hearing feedback on the features we've built to enhance the service."

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac™ is the ideal solution for countless applications.
