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 especially for rail traffic?
Which materials can be utilized for which applications to create the greatest possible product?
How can we educate and train employees to achieve a standardized skill level in AM?
Can AM help protect the environment and how can we make it greener?
What can the European Railways together do to bring more applications to the market?
Digital Supply Chain
What requirements does AM place on the digital supply chain and how can we 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?
