Additive manufacturing is revolutionizing production: A reality check

Die additive Fertigung bedeutet grundlegende Veränderungen für die Produktion. Skalierbarkeit, Kosten und Produktionseffizienz stellen allerdings noch Herausforderungen für die Kommerzialisierung dieser Technologie dar. Der Wandel von einer visionären Technologie hin zur Mainstream-Kommerzialisierung ist eines der Kernthemen der 3. Münchner Technologiekonferenz (MTC3), die vom 8. bis 10. Oktober 2019 in der Technischen Universität München (TUM) stattfinden wird. Die Referenten widmen sich unter anderem den aktuellen technischen und regulatorischen Herausforderungen und bewerten die Bedeutung von Innovationen für die Zukunft des 3D-Drucks.
