Industry Forum: Future Digital Supply Chain

Date: 8 February 2023 | 12:00 - 17:30
Location: Brainport Industries Campus (BIC), Eindhoven

3D printing as a sustainable solution in the global supply chain

Additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing of parts among other things for machines, is a technology that is developing at a rapid pace. At the German-Dutch Industry Forum on 8 February 2023, we will discuss how digitisation and additive manufacturing can help solve the global problems facing the supply chain.

Additive manufacturing makes it possible to print high-quality parts on demand at any location in the world, only in the quantities needed, which means entrepreneurs do not have to stockpile large inventories. This sounds like a sustainable solution, saving time and costs and making companies less dependent on suppliers. But are we already there or is this still in the future? And where are the opportunities in the cooperation between German and Dutch entrepreneurs? You will hear on 8 February 2023. Register for the event now, as the number of places is limited.
