Materialise and HP Strengthen User Control over AM Processes
As additive manufacturing matures, AM users desire even greater control over operations to further streamline processes and improve efficiency. We at Materialise have experienced the benefits of integrating software into hardware firsthand over our 30 years in the industry, providing production engineers with powerful information they can use to gain that control and improve facility planning. Along with productivity improvements, software also has the capability to protect intellectual property (IP) — a major interest of those contemplating the addition of AM to their business.
Kristof Sehmke, Materialise Corporate PR Manager, spoke with Rebecca Campbell, Director of 3D Business Models and Programs at HP Inc., to discuss machine communication, digital rights management, and the HP Digital Manufacturing Network (DMN).
