3D printing has the potential to advance any branch of industry into the next big development stage. Our founding members were aware of this and created the network with the goal of establishing Additive Manufacturing in all industry sectors.
But what does it take to bring additively manufactured components into serial production? We pool our knowledge in working groups to address this most important question and other issues that arise during the process:
Approval in Rail
How can we gain approval for 3D printed safety relevant components for rail traffic?
What are the users requirements for materials and standards to create the optimal product?
How can we educate and train employees and bring reasearch to its full potential?
How can the ecological impact of AM parts be assessed and what are the qualifcation principles?
What can the European Railways together do to bring more applications to the market?
Digital Supply Chain
What are the problems for every link in the supply chain and how can we AM-optimize it?
Aero + Space
With which materials, designs, standards do we get more printed parts into the air/space?
How can we push AM to the next level in automotive and what are the future use cases?
How can Additive Manufacturing enrich the construction industry and make it more sustainable?
