Next month is the 22ndTCT Show, arguably one of the most important dates in the UK additive manufacturing (AM) calendar. It’s a great opportunity for 3D printing (3DP) innovators like us, to get together with businesses and manufacturers alike, to present, discuss and explore “tomorrow’s manufacturing technology today”.
Recently, we brought our Metal AM Academy to India and Singapore to further educate local metal users on the Metal AM process. The transfer of knowledge allowed the participants to use their machines better and grow their expertise.
How does 3D Printing affect the number of manufacturing jobs and what is the impact of the technology on our society? Jürgen Tiedje, head of Digital Grow at the European Commission, shares the European Commission’s view on these topics.
What can 3D printing technology bring to India? Materialise and Renishaw answered this question during their ‘Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing’ seminar in Pune, India, at Renishaw’s AM Solutions Centre. For this seminar, more than 40 people from different industries - aerospace, automotive, engineering, medical, oil and gas etc. - gathered from all over India.
Beginning this year, we held a co-creation exercise where our people managers were invited to work out the focus of their development among the six leadership competencies. Team activation was one of the needs that the group identified, and we chose a beautiful day in April to have our first People Manager Team Building.
What is the current buzz in the 3D printing industry? There’s no better way to find out than by roaming around at RAPID + TCT and enjoying the atmosphere. Materialise has attended RAPID + TCT for years – in 2013 we even hosted the opening event – and we have witnessed the event shifting its focus from prototyping to manufacturing with our own eyes. We collected the hot topics of this year for you.
From 31 May to 2 June, Materialise and Wohlers Associates will conduct a Design for Additive Manufacturing course. This exclusive training is limited to 25 participants and provides hands-on learning and expert instruction on the best methods of design for AM. It includes the consolidation of many parts into fewer parts, topology optimization, lattice, mesh, cellular structures, design rules, and other methods of design for AM.
We asked Terry Wohlers some questions about his drive to organize this training together with Materialise.
May is here and that means we are all getting ready for RAPID, the preeminent event for 3D printing and scanning technology. This is the ideal opportunity for you to experience our latest software products and discuss how to boost your business with Materialise experts. The place to be is Pittsburgh, where you can visit us at booth 1613 from May 8-11!
