Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF)

The LPBF Process

Lack of quality assurance and stochastic nature of defects has been a major barrier for Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) technology and for its wide use in critical industries like automotive and aviation. Not anymore!

Addiguru’s in situ monitoring software for powder bed fusion uses inexpensive high-resolution cameras to detect issues such as powder bed anomalies, part elevation, spatter, recoater streaking, and recoater hopping in REAL-TIME.


The layer-by-layer data is analyzed using computer vision algorithms and convolutional neural networks, allowing anomaly detection and notifications to users in real-time.

Independent of feedstock material and machine interface, the software can notify users of any anomalies as it scans each layer offering detailed insights into the process and potential for automatic corrections using closed-loop control.

"Addiguru’s software is extremely useful for monitoring my builds. It has made my work flow more efficient by giving me some peace of mind. I love that Addiguru is regularly adding more features based on the users' feedback."
~ Colin Kools
"Addiguru’s in situ monitoring software sends notifications of issues detected within seconds of layer completion. It allows us to catch issues earlier, thereby saving headaches and time."
