Discover the potential that 3D printing has for your business during a seminar series

Are the applications for additive manufacturing limited to making products in short production runs, such as spare parts, or do technological developments allow the scope of applications to be greatly expanded?  And when would it be financially attractive for a company to adopt 3D printing? In response to questions like these from manufacturing companies, Innovatiecentrum has joined with its partners, including Sirris, to organise a series of sessions in which the potential for companies will be set out. 

Something that only a few years ago was seen as no more than a way to make prototypes, is now being adopted by more and more companies in an increasing number of sectors for manufacturing. The sessions that Innovatiecentrum are organising for managers and production chiefs of manufacturing companies will allow the participants to set out a roadmap for the potential that this technology has for their company. They will get answers to questions like:

  • Is there a 3D technology suitable for my applications?
  • Is that technology affordable?
  • Can I integrate that technology in my production process?
  • Will the technology affect my existing business model?
  • What steps should I take to further explore or implement its practical applicability?

Sirris and KU Leuven will give speeches during the first session on 14 April about assessing technological potential, consisting of the first part, ‘Overview of the 3D printing ecosystem: how far has the technology (not yet) come', and the second part, ‘How can I see whether 3D printing has potential for my company?'.
