Network News 01/2019

Dear members,

we hope you all had a good start into the new year and we can achieve a lot together in 2019! Two new members will help us to achieve this.

JAMPT (Japanese Additive Manufacturing & Processing Technology) has set itself the goal of making the Japanese economy internationally competitive in the AM sector.

As the 90th member, we also welcome BeAM Machines from Strasbourg to our network. BeAM was founded in 2012 to build a new generation of DED solutions. These printers have been delivered since 2016 and the product portfolio has been extended by further generations and models.

Stefanie Brickwede met Joerg Oster, Sales Manager for Germany and Austria personally at the ISAM.

Welcome to the network and to a good cooperation!

In January, the RAILiability working group met at our premisses in Berlin. It deals with concrete rail-specific challenges of Additive Manufacturing. Parts are to be compared, similarities identified and solutions worked out.
We are glad that Felix Spiess from ÖBB will take over the leadership of the working group.
The next big step is the signing of a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) at a press conference as part of the AM Forum Berlin on 15.03.2019.

At the last board meeting it was decided to focus the internationalization efforts on Europe. The inclusion of European subsidiaries or dependencies has advantages, among others, in the timing of meetings. Nevertheless, suitable partners for strengthening the network will continue to be sought on the international market. In addition to membership of the network, these partnerships can also support an exchange of information for the mutual benefit of both parties.



On 15.02.2019, we celebrate carnival together with friends, neighbours and network members at our office! If you are in Berlin and still looking for an evening event for which you can dress up, come and see us!
We are lokking forward to seeing you!


US Army at MgA

In mid-December, the US Army specifically visited us, and we were struck by the parallels in spare parts printing for commercial vehicles and infrastructure. Our network members bigrep, Fraunhofer IAPT, Trinckle 3D, Deutsche Bahn AG, GEFERTEC, 3YOURMIND, Bionic Production and APWORKS impressively represented the AM location Germany with their solutions. On the following day there was an exciting meeting with the DB and the Bundeswehr. Learning: the spare part related breakdowns are better under control for the railways, even better in perspective due to AM.

The areas of deployment in the armed forces are, however, more diverse and more strongly influenced by environmental conditions and regulation.
Follow-ups were agreed directly. We intent to establish this workshop format inside Mobility goes Additive for targeted exchange with sectors with high potential.
