AMSYSTEMS Center Innovation Day – 30 May 2018

The ubiquity of information, desire for personalization and focus on sustainable and low-cost products, causes a paradigm shift in manufacturing. While today mass-production of standardized products is common, the future lies in customized, on-demand and locally manufactured products. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the answer to these products.


AMSYSTEMS Center focuses on the development of next generation multi-material/multi-technology AM equipment and the integration of AM technologies towards mass-customization production chains, enabling the industry to step up to Next Generation Manufacturing. The focus areas of AMSYSTEMS Center are Food, Healthcare, High Tech applications and Printed Electronics.

On this day you will explore the innovations of our focus areas and meet researchers and representatives of the industry.
