Whereas we bring 3D print software to market, Siemens PLM offers product lifecycle management (PLM) and manufacturing operations management (MOM) software. At formnext, the exhibition in Frankfurt that reunites Additive Manufacturing companies from around the globe, Siemens used demo sessions to show visitors what a collaboration between Materialise and Siemens could mean to the AM industry.

Andreas Saar, Vice President at Siemens PLM, believes that collaborating with leading experts like Materialise is the best way to move the industry forward. In an interview by Stefaan Motte, Vice President of Software at Materialise, he gives his opinions on questions like: “How will Additive change the manufacturing industry?” and “What is the importance of software?” By integrating mature technology into a complete system, Siemens is focused on delivering a software solution to make Additive Manufacturing a true industrial production process. Discover more details in the interview below. And keep an eye on our blog channel as we will be sharing two more interview videos with leaders in AM.
