When going from concept to car, every second of the production process counts. RapidFit wants to help you reach this finish line faster by automating your parts-measurement process. Curious whether moving to laser checking fixtures is right for you? Read on to find out more about our RapidFit calculator and take the guess work out of determining your cost savings and efficiency gains from making the switch.
Materialise interviews Dr. Adrian Keppler, the CEO of EOS, about what is necessary to make 3D Printing more successful in the future. It’s all about creating an additive mindset. Watch the leadership talk interview.
Dr. Hendrik Schafstall explains what value simulation can bring in Metal 3D Printing, what it means to have simulation integrated within Materialise Magics and what the future of simulation looks like.
Materialise e-Stage for Metal is the only software in the world that automates support generation for titanium, stainless steel and aluminum parts. Hannes Brenning, Process Engineer at our metal competence center in Bremen, Germany, was one of the first to try out this revolutionary software.
Interviewing Oliver Edelmann, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing of Concept Laser, now part of the GE Group, who told us about the evolution and challenges of Metal AM and where the industry should focus to prepare the technology for its next big step.
One of the biggest contemporary names in Design, Ross Lovegrove will be exhibiting an introspective collection of his work called “Mutations – Creations” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris this summer. Throughout his long and varied career, Ross has continuously pushed form and function with modern technologies – including 3D Printing – to produce organic, environmental designs. We interviewed him to find out about the philosophy behind his work, why we should strive towards sustainable design, and what role 3D Printing can really play in innovative design.
Far from its days as a niche technology, 3D Printing now accounts for more than 90% of the world’s in-ear hearing aids: and that’s just one example of how 3D Printing is making waves in the manufacturing sector across diverse industries. At Materialise, we’ve announced five major eyewear manufacturing projects in the past year alone, in addition to several 3D-printed fashion collaborations and other consumer products.
If you want to visualize the supermarket of the future, you need the tools of the future. At the EXPO MILANO 2015, the Future Food District featured all kinds of new technologies working on different areas of the food chain. Among them, we saw ABB’s exhibit YuMi, originally designed to automate small parts assembly in the consumer electronics industry. And Materialise’s 3D-printed grippers are giving YuMi a hand. (For a deeper look into how we designed the grippers, check out our case study!)
Ceaselessly trying to find ways to use 3D printing technology for a better and healthier world, Materialise can seem like the stuff that dreams are made of for many people we help. From the looks of the new UPS commercial featuring Materialise, they certainly seem to think so too.
