3D printing and Industry 4.0 are the buzzwords currently defining the economy. Although additive manufacturing for plastics has already produced the first affordable printers for the home, 3D metal printing is and remains in the hands of innovative industrial companies. toolcraft has been manufacturing 3D-printed precision components in metal since 2011 and will soon be moving into its newly-built laser melting centre. We have also already implemented Industry 4.0 in the field of machining. Now the 3D printing and Industry 4.0 are to be combined. Learn here how this works with the help of NX™ software from Siemens.
Watch here the advantages of Siemens NX™ along the whole process chain of metal laser melting.
