Use Cases

Especially in the medical sector the potential of AM applications is ever growing. The implementation of 3D printed medical devices is a very complex process and not every use case will reach a state where it can replace conventionally produced devices.

This working group is keeping a close eye on newest developments and is driving real use applications with the greatest promise.
