thyssenkrupp steps up 3d printing operations
On Friday, a 3D printing center was opened in the industrial hub of western Germany as part of its efforts to open up an expanding market.
Heinrich Singh, chief executive of thysenk rup, said the center has invested more than a million euros to operate two 3D printers, one for plastic and one for metal parts.
Hiesinger estimates that the overall market value of such products is as high as 20 billion euros ($23. 8 billion)
In annual sales, the German company is keen to get the service through industries such as aviation, cars and energy.
\"If we put all of our industries into it, we will cover half of it, and that doesn\'t mean we can serve the market right away.
But this is the stage where we can start delivering our products to our customers . \"
Some industrial components such as airlines or wind power
Turbine parts can now be manufactured by 3D printing or additive manufacturing, in which objects are printed in layers directly from computer designs, rather than cut out of material blocks. ($1 = 0. 8415 euros)
