Through the combination of additive manufacturing with business process digitalization, we have been able to realize the vision of a lot size of 1 and custom series production.
This allows for a range of production possibilities for furniture, shoes, and industries such as mechanical engineering and the automotive sector.
Products can be individually adjusted in line with customer requirements and desires, which means that they can be developed and manufactured in line with needs.
Here, additive manufacturing differs from conventional production, since if conventional methods were used, individual tools would need to be produced, which would be prohibitively time-consuming and expensive.
Contrary to this, additive manufacturing enables the production of custom products for similar costs as in pure mass production.
