Bart Van der Schueren, Chief Technology Officer at Materialise and Materialise Mindware representative, discusses megatrends in manufacturing and how these values can guide companies navigating the industry during a pandemic. Discover how these three focuses can keep your business on track.
SLS has proven to be a dependable technology that can add great value to almost any application. As our focus at Materialise turns to empowering sustainable choices in AM, we’re using this reliable technology to introduce a new material that enables sustainably manufactured prototypes: Bluesint PA12.
The past three decades have seen additive manufacturing mature into an innovation technology. Then, with the COVID-19 global health crisis, the benefits of the technology - making urgently needed products faster and locally - became meaningful in a new way. Now, as we enter the fourth decade of 3D printing, let us look at how innovation can empower sustainability and rethink not just what it allows us to make, but what it makes possible.
Just keeping afloat or actually staying ahead of the curve? In uncertain times such as these, speeding up production and logistics are a must, as is identifying new opportunities as traditional revenue streams are disrupted. Discover how sustainable supply chains and new business models can help.
Since its arrival at Materialise in 2003, FDM has proven to be a reliable addition to our offering, both in terms of mechanical properties over time and quality of the prints themselves. The technology is known for its reliability, repeatability, and quality, making it ideal for certified manufacturing.
UK start-up Mitt is asking us to reconceptualize the idea of what limb replacement really means. By putting function alongside form and leveraging the freedom of design that 3D printing offers, they’ve created a prosthetic arm that is functional, customizable, comfortable and, most importantly, accessible. And it’s this approach that saw them crowned Disrupter of the Year at this year’s London Business Awards.
We’re celebrating Materialise’s 30th anniversary this October by looking into Metal 3D Printing technology and how it’s evolved at Materialise over the years. Learn more about our alloys, Metal Competence Center, and initiatives to make Metal AM the technology of choice for tomorrow.
As multi-use spaces grow in popularity, the architecture department at TU Delft decided to work towards a solution to the bothersome noise frequencies that often accompany these areas. Discover how they teamed up with Materialise to build 3D-printed acoustics panels.
We introduced polypropylene (PP), a commonly used plastic in manufacturing, to our 3D printing material lineup in 2018. Find out how incorporating this flexible-yet-tough material into your production leads to major benefits.
