Field of innovation: Additive manufacturing

Thanks to additive manufacturing (3D printing) more complex and customized parts than ever before can be produced.


Additive manufacturing /3D printing comprises of several different technologies that can produce parts layer by layer directly from digital files. The technologies have two fundamental differences compared to traditional manufacturing methods. First, they do not have any economies of scale, which means the cost per part is not depending on the number of parts produced. This enables the economic production of small series down to lot size 1. Second, the geometry of parts is almost not restricted and more complex parts than ever before can be realized.
