No longer seen as merely a tool for rapid prototyping, 3D printing has emerged as a future-proof way to produce smarter, cheaper, and more performant end-use parts. Discover how aircraft manufacturers, MROs, and aviation authorities alike are realizing the potential of AM for low-criticality plastic components.
We spoke to Dr. Thomas Schouman, a Maxillofacial Surgeon working at APHP-Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital at Sorbonne University in Paris, about his invaluable experience on being at the forefront of personalized CMF solutions and the advantages of this technology.
80% of manufacturers already use AM to prototype, but how can your business scale to make it a core part of your manufacturing processes? Find out how we’ve helped businesses to adopt AM on a larger scale cost effectively and efficiently.
If a part breaks, is replacing it with a like-for-like part always the best idea? What if you could rethink the design and bring real value with an improved version? Discover how Materialise helped Expleo develop a 3D-printed repair kit that takes spare parts to the next level.
Multi-laser 3D printers will greatly improve productivity and control within additive manufacturing organizations. But how can we ensure that the process is optimized and reliable? Learn how our software team is innovating to make this technology accessible during this interview with Research Manager Tom Craeghs.
Adopting additive manufacturing is not a straightforward process — it’s a journey. We outline this journey in our model, which starts with the first phase: Explore. Discover how Hyundai Lifeboats explored the added value of 3D printing with Materialise Mindware to co-create a jig and fixture system for their boats.
With incremental steps, 3D printing has revolutionized the way we manufacture products and has helped to save lives. This interview between Fried and Kristof Sehmke, our PR Manager, goes over the last 30 years of the company’s story with a look forward to the future. Read on to learn about five highlights from the interview!
Point-of-Care 3D Printing wasn’t a new concept for University Hospitals Leuven, but with 3D visualization and printing expertise scattered across its clinical departments, the hospital decided to harness the knowledge and amplify its reach by establishing a centralized 3D printing lab.
PAL Robotics is a leading company that develops humanoid and service robots since 2004. Their most recent and most advanced project was a humanoid robot, ARI, created in close collaboration with Materialise and 3D printing technology.
