CEO Kristofer Skyttner is this year one of the speakers at the Automation Summit conference in Västerås. The theme is how we can make customized products the new normal in Swedish industry. The fair is hosted yearly by Automation Region and a short summary from last years event can be seen below. See you there!
Are you at the Euromat 2019 in Stockholm? Then you have to come by our collaboration exhibit together with IMA – Innovative Materials Arena. We showcase some examples how you with accessible configurators and customization tools can enable guided design, standardize internal material testing and auto generate everything from material specifications to test files.
When implementing Mass Customization in your organisation one key is automation all the way to the manufacturing machines. Therefore we have worked with Salvagnini to create a direct connection towards their Salvagnini OPS planning software from our cloud service DynaMaker. Below you can see an example of customized cover plates being handled from the cloud directly to one of their fiber lasers through the OPS.
Do you own a Salvagnini laser or press break and are interested in this? Please contact us and we will help you on the road to Mass Customization!
After another year at Linköping University, where I just finished my fourth out of five years in my MSc in Mechanical Engineering education, I return to SkyMaker for my second summer internship.
Even though I enjoyed working almost purely with software, this year I wanted to be closer to a real machine. And fortunately, SkyMaker invested in a laser cutter/engraver earlier this year that I have got the opportunity to play around with. During my first week back at SkyMaker I have experimented to find cutting and engraving settings for different materials for the laser cutter. Enabling the possibilities of just making a sketch, selecting material and let the software and laser cutter deal with the rest.
Now I’m off to enjoy a holiday I longed for but I’ll be back in mid July to keep working on the laser machine and to develop more applications. Hopefully you have by then, if you haven’t already, realized the opportunities with DynaMaker, registered and developed your own first application. Trevlig sommar, happy summer!

We have now launched our cloud service DynaMaker fully public on www.dynamaker.com so that small and medium enterprises can themselves build dynamic tools for online product configuration and mass customization.
The tool is fully cloud based and enables manufacturing companies to build dynamic tools for 3D configuration, guided drawing and parametric customization of specific products that they manufacture. And continuously publish new versions so the tools can be accessed by the customers.
The cloud service is provided as Software as a Service (SaaS) and you can sign up and pick a suitable pricing plane directly on dynamaker.com/pricing
