formnext 2018: Learn about Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing solutions

Don’t miss us at formnext 2018, November 13 – 16, Frankfurt, Germany. 

Look for us under the “Industrialize Additive Manufacturing” banner at the Siemens booth E50.

Siemens Exhibit – Hall 3.0, booth E50

This year we are showcasing our entire solutions portfolio for industrializing additive manufacturing, tailored to industries, such as the automotive industry or mechanical engineering.  We offer a seamless development process chain for all common 3D printing processes and printing systems, from the design to the creation of the exposure paths on an associative database. The new, integrated process simulation for the powder-based laser application method complements the process chain. The management of the entire process data and control of the print jobs in production rounds off the portfolio.

Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Network connects the industrial AM ecosystem players on a digital platform to accelerate the adaptation of AM. It supports designers, AM experts and production engineers streamline the co-innovation and the business processes for design and production. It also connects the global AM ecosystem with the industry leaders to share knowledge, expertise and software tools.

The business of spare parts presents a number of key challenges regardless of the industry. Whether those challenges stem from making, storing or shipping these parts, the traditional solutions often amount to time-consuming and costing difficulties.  In the rail industry, these issues can take the form of discontinued parts, certification problems, and design constraints.  For suppliers, certain replacement parts can either be uneconomical or impossible to manufacture, depending on the number of parts required, or the level of customization needed.

In the presentation, Siemens Mobility, will explore how advanced FDM additive manufacturing is enabling suppliers to increase innovation and overcome these problems.  Responsible for some of the world’s most advanced rail solutions, the Siemens Mobility team is pioneering a new, distributed manufacturing network to 3D print spare parts on demand for its customers.  Launched last year, this network has gone from strength to strength with FDM additive manufacturing at the heart of it.  From customized, low-volume replacement internal parts to essential exterior train components, the Siemens Mobility team is pushing the boundaries of what is possible with additive manufacturing in the rail industry.
