Tech Radar reports on a recent announcement made by electronics giant Siemens. Siemen has announced it will be opening a brand-new 3D printing centre in New Worcester in the United Kingdom.
Siemens has already pledged around $38 million to this new 3D printing centre, which “will greatly expand the possibility of using 3D printed items across its industrial operations within the next few years.” Siemens aims to open this brand-new 3D printing centre in September of 2018.
“The launch will increase Siemens’ fleet of 3D printers from 15 to 50, and will allow the production of ‘thousands’ of specialized parts.” Siemens UK CEO Juergen Maier elaborates: “this significant investment underlines our belief that there is huge potential for innovation and growth within the Additive Manufacturing sector. It is also the next step towards achieving our ambition of pioneering the industrialization of 3D printing and demonstrates how we are leading the way for the fourth industrial revolution.”
“If the UK’s manufacturing sector is to grow and thrive, we must embrace digital technologies and build new industries based on them. Our vision and ambition for Materials Solutions perfectly represents how we are putting this strategy into practice.”
Materials Solutions, which is 85% owned by Siemens, will operate this new 3D printing centre.
