Additive manufacturing
Masterclass

AM to serve your business

In Belgium, all the right conditions are present for you to make the absolute most of 3D printing (aka additive manufacturing/AM). So how can you do just that? This masterclass proposes to offer you all the answers over an initiatory tour of the world of industrial additive manufacturing.

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) has been around for years. Yet the industrial sector remains relatively unfamiliar with it, hence missing a great number of practical applications towards progress. Furthermore, Belgium is among the technology’s pioneers and offers an ecosystem that is already highly developed and extremely propitious to experimentation in the field. So, all the conditions are reunited so that you too can reap the benefits of these technologies. You just need to know how. And this masterclass precisely proposes to offer you all the answers over an initiatory tour of the world of industrial additive manufacturing.

The aim of the masterclass will be to cast light on the great potential of AM, whilst identifying the traps you want to avoid. Several inspiring examples will be shared, and you will benefit from personalised discussions in response to your specific questions. You will be guided in the right direction, at the right pace. So that your business can move into second gear… or 3D.
