Additive manufacturing (AM) is emerging as an enabling technology for the twin transition, in which digital manufacturing serves a new generation of sustainable products and processes. There are still many open challenges for producers of additive systems for metallic materials: cost reduction, increase in productivity, in the size of processable parts, reduction in post-process costs, the processability of new materials.
MADE is a Competence Center for Industry 4.0 that simulates a digital factory, created to carry out orientation, training, and finalization of technology transfer projects with Italian companies, particularly SMEs, on Industry 4.0 issues. A technical interlocutor that companies can contact to be supported during the digital transition towards a smart factory, with the aim of keeping their profile high, competitive, and sustainable.
Created by MISE (Italian Ministry of Economic Development), MADE offers a wide landscape of knowledge, methods and tools in the field of digital technologies. The Made Competence Center Industry 4.0 supports companies in addressing topics related to the digital transition to a smart, connected, and sustainable factory.
During the MadeXAM – Meet The Metal Makers: PBF conference participants will discover the latest developments by the leading producers of powder bed fusion systems and also the latest innovations presented by some of the most innovative startups that have entered the additive market in recent years, with revolutionary solutions to increase productivity and reduce costs.
