VDMA founds Additive Manufacturing trade association
Additive manufacturing (AM) processes are playing an increasingly important role in industrial production both nationally and internationally. In many branches of industry, the production of complex parts and structures is only made possible by 3D printing and all its variations. German and European companies are at the forefront of technological development here - and the members of the VDMA reflect this. In order to exploit their potential even further and to strengthen the network of companies, the VDMA is now founding an Additive Manufacturing Association specifically for this purpose, headed by Dr Markus Heering as Managing Director.
