SILENT REVOLUTION - 3D-Druck in der Produktion

With 3D printing technologies, companies can now replace conventional production technologies such as milling, molding, drilling or turning. We name checkpoints and starting points for using these technologies

Silent Revolution

Ignoring it is not an option: 3D printing is changing industry. Additive manufacturing is still seen as a limited technology in relation to overall production volume. And yet there are many indications that 3D printing will gain a firm place in industry as a production method and will change established forms of organization and process.
