Network News 06/2018: New business year, Annual Meeting 2018 — Tickets available

Dear Members,

Our sec­ond busi­ness year ends and we can look back on a suc­cess­ful year thanks to joint work. 75 com­pa­nies are cur­rent­ly work­ing in our net­work on the estab­lish­ment and series pro­duc­tion readi­ness of addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing in indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion!
Five new mem­ber com­pa­nies will join this group at the begin­ning of the new busi­ness year:

The Israeli start­up LEO Lane offers its own ecosys­tem for the man­age­ment, con­trol and secure use of your own print data.

Tren­i­talia, Italy’s largest rail­way com­pa­ny, was cre­at­ed in 2000 by sep­a­rat­ing the freight and pas­sen­ger trans­port busi­ness from the par­ent com­pa­ny Fer­rovie del­lo Sta­to Ital­iane (FS).

O.R. Lasertech­nolo­gie GmbH from Dieburg, Ger­many, has been deal­ing with inno­v­a­tive con­cepts in laser tech­nol­o­gy for more than 20 years and sup­plies its own indus­tri­al laser sys­tems all over the world.

Faive­ley Trans­port is a French provider of rail sys­tems and ser­vices with head­quar­ters near Paris and loca­tions in 26 coun­tries. The com­pa­ny belongs to the Amer­i­can Wabtec Cor­po­ra­tion, which sup­plies loco­mo­tives and rail vehi­cle com­po­nents and is expect­ed to merge with GE Trans­porta­tion in 2019.

The team of Indus­tri­al Part­ners GmbH from Frank­furt am Main, Beer­felden im Oden­wald and Tian­jin, P.R. Chi­na devel­ops and designs indi­vid­ual com­po­nents, sub­sys­tems and prod­ucts for var­i­ous indus­tri­al sec­tors. It sup­ports its cus­tomers from the idea to the series part, even with the cor­rect use of addi­tive pro­duc­tion.

Wel­come to the net­work and on a good coop­er­a­tion!

Advi­so­ry Board
Due to Stef­fen Kuhn’s change to EOS and the avoid­ance of dom­i­nance by a com­pa­ny, Niko­lai Zaeper­nick leaves the net­work advi­so­ry board. We would like to thank Niko­lai for his work since the foun­da­tion of the net­work!
We will con­tin­ue to work close­ly with EOS on the Net­work Advi­so­ry Board with Stef­fen Kuhn.

Annu­al Meet­ing 2018
Our Annu­al Meet­ing in the net­work is com­ing up! On 26.09.2018 we meet in Berlin.
The gen­er­al meet­ing will be fol­lowed by an excit­ing net­work­ing pro­gramme that is open to every­one and will once again pro­vide an all-round overview of the net­work top­ics and suc­cess­es, pro­vide new inspi­ra­tion and get to know our new mem­bers.

What has hap­pened in the work­ing groups?
-Direct dis­cus­sion in an inter­ac­tive mar­ket stand con­cept with the work­ing group lead­ers

What’s the news?
-Be informed about cur­rent devel­op­ments even before Form­next, e.g. by Desk­top­Met­al Print­ing to reduce post­pro­cess­ing effort

-Get to know com­plete­ly new appli­ca­tions, e.g. wheelset bear­ing caps print­ed with 3DMP

-A look beyond the end of one’s nose: How far is the pres­sure of human spare parts? From heart valves to tis­sue print­ing — a real­is­tic insight

-Every­one is talk­ing about digi­ti­sa­tion and it is being imple­ment­ed in Europe’s largest mobil­i­ty and logis­tics group by her: Prof. Dr. Sabi­na Jeschke, Direc­tor of Tech­nol­o­gy and Dig­i­ti­za­tion at Deutsche Bahn, reports on the dig­i­ti­za­tion of Deutsche Bahn and what role 3D print­ing plays in it

-Berlin brings indus­try back: State Sec­re­tary for Eco­nom­ic Affairs of Berlin, Chris­t­ian Rick­erts, for­mer head of Wikipedia, reveals his vision of 3D print­ing in the cap­i­tal

-And you’ll be there when Mobil­i­ty goes Addi­tive cel­e­brates its entry into the 3D print­ing hub — with jazz quar­tet and DJ — until ear­ly in the morn­ing!


CECIMO Brus­sels
Last week, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the 3D print­ing indus­try met at the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment in Brus­sels at the invi­ta­tion of CECIMO. Togeth­er with excel­lent­ly informed par­lia­men­tar­i­ans, rel­e­vant reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments were dis­cussed. The main top­ics were stan­dards, legal frame­work con­di­tions, edu­ca­tion and their con­sid­er­a­tion in the new EU fund­ing pro­gramme “Hori­zons Europe”, which will replace the exist­ing “Hori­zons 2020”.
