VDMA User Case Area goes virtual - Additive Engineering for a High-Performance Packaging Machine

The famous VDMA user-case-area of Formnext goes virtual. Over the last years more and more the application side of AM became bigger and bigger. Talking about industrial use of AM its necessary to talk about costs, efficiency and business cases. Our panel is a perfect showcase how a high-tech packaging machine benefits through the use of Additive Manufacturing and how a multi team effort contribute to a better solution.
