Siemens enables You Mawo and Additive Scale to gauge up cumulative manufacturing of bespoke eyewear in a cost-effective and sustainable way

End-to- end robotization and digitalization of all process steps enables the industrialization of cumulative manufacturing
Simulation and digital halves help to test and apply profitability and scalability
Individual Backing models lower investment chain and time-to- request
Carbon footmark to be reduced by over to 58 percent with additively manufactured eyewear
Siemens enables the launch-up You Mawo in offering bespoke eyeglass frames in such a way that they’re accessible, affordable, and sustainable for a broad request and You Mawo can have them produced in an economically cost-effective and responsible way. The customization process considers parameters similar as design, a perfect fit for the person wearing the spectacles, and color.

“We believe that the request for personalized eyewear is veritably large. Additively manufactured eyewear fits impeccably and requires significantly lower material. Compared to conventionally produced eyewear, we can reduce the carbon footmark by over to 58 percent through cumulative manufacturing,”explains You Mawo author Daniel Szabo. He goes on to say,”Until now, still, reproduceable product in veritably large amounts has been the tricky part.”The product of 3D published eyeglass frames is the thing of Additive Scale GmbH, which was innovated specifically for this purpose. Its approach consists of a precedence result chain of 3D printing systems, face, and coloring finishing, as well as software, to produce customized eyeglass frames with reproduceable part parcels. Siemens is supporting Additive Scale’s design with its comprehensive portfolio of robotization and digitalization results as well as backing results.
Cumulative Scale has been producing personalized eyeglass frames for You Mawo since May 2021 with an periodic capacity of roughly frames and is formerly planning to double capacity for the coming time.
“The decisive factor for high productivity with the topmost possible inflexibility is the automated and digital integration of coordinated manufacturing way of all actors in the product process. This includes automated processing of the entire workflow and begins with the appearance of the order, continues through design and on to printing,post-processing and final delivery,”explainsDr. Karsten Heuser, Vice President Additive Manufacturing at Siemens Digital Diligence.

In the first step, the plant planning experts from Siemens Advanta worked with Cumulative Scale to produce a digital twin of the product that contains all process way and machines. This allows different approaches to material inflow and product layouts to be dissembled-for illustration, the transport of corridor from one machine to the coming via AGVs, conveyor belts or robots. It also allows the profitability of product to be tested without taking pitfalls. The eyeglass frames are published using picky ray sintering on EOS machines. For face finishing and coloring, the specialist DyeMansion is on board.”You Mawo were one of our first guests. Together, we managed to raise the entirepost-processing for eyewear to a position that meets the loftiest demands in terms of quality and reproduceability. With our strategic mates EOS and Siemens, we’re now incorporating all of this into a plant that has the implicit to change the entire eyewear assiduity. A lighthouse design for the entire 3D printing assiduity that was only made possible by strong hookups,”says Felix Ewald, CEO andCo-Founder of DyeMansion. EOS, DyeMansion and Siemens have formerly banded in the history on innovative systems in the field of robotization and digitalization of product installations, with the end of accelerating the industrialization of cumulative manufacturing.
The artificial 3D printing machines for Cumulative Scale are financed by Siemens Financial Services (SFS), Siemens’ backing arm. The thing was to lower the immediate investment chain and enable scaling as product needs grow.” Integrating backing into an ecosystem approach like this, where all the right mates come together from the launch, has allowed us to produce a smart leasing result at a launch-up’s pace. Also, it offers enormous implicit to acclimatize as request demands evolve,”says Matthias Grossmann, CEO Commercial Finance at Siemens Financial Services. Depending on the specific conditions, SFS offers a range of models
. As a coming step, Cumulative Scale, with support from Siemens Digital Diligence and Siemens Advanta, plans to gauge up product, with amid-term thing of producing one million or further personalized eyeglass frames per time.”Our long- term thing is to have completely automated and digitalized small product spots around the world that allow us to produce locally and respond snappily to client requests. This reduces shipping costs and time, and leaves a significantly lower carbon footmark,”explains Sebastian Zenetti, CEO of Additive Scale. Using the Factory Planning Toolbox developed specifically for cumulative manufacturing, scalable product generalities can be dissembled and validated. In the simulation, product and process variants are compared in terms of product costs and yield. Spanning scripts are also estimated grounded on order scripts and the degree of robotization. Particularly important will be the effective running of the order-to- delivery process, so that every client can also admit their customized spectacles within a period of around 14 days. In addition to the connectivity of the machines to each other and to the pall, scripts of the ordering process of sharing opticians, for illustration via the Additive Manufacturing Network, and the traceability of the personalized frames for the end client will also be considered then. For this purpose, Siemens is testing results for the separate coming scaling position in its own Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in a devoted product cell, similar as the connection to an artificial pall and the creation of dashboards with for the optimization of Overall Outfit Effectiveness
