Emmanuelle Vandamme, Belgium’s Mobility Policy Chief, visited Materialise to get a behind-the-scenes look at our certified additive manufacturing facilities. Read this interview to learn about Ms. Vandamme’s main mission and her views on innovation in the mobility sector.
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.
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.
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.
