Siemens Gets Serious with a Significant Investment in 3D Technology


Additive manufacturing, or 3D technology, is in the midst of creating a monumental shift in the industry. A pivotal move recently announced by Siemens, disclosed plans to enhance their manufacturing capacity significantly. According to a MarketWatch report, Siemens is investing a staggering 2.17 billion euros in their manufacturing operations. This enormous investment signifies an escalating commitment to the technology’s potential to revolutionize production.

So, what exactly is the future of additive manufacturing? Is the hefty investment by Siemens indicative of a trend that will revolutionize the production of goods, or is it just another tool to supplement traditional manufacturing? Moreover, how does this influence the balance of power in the manufacturing sector? These are critical questions that many industry stakeholders, investors, and innovators are asking right now.

On the first of two DisruptED Advanced Manufacturing Edition podcast episodes on this topic, host Ron J Stefanski sits down with Steve Vosmik, Head of Additive Manufacturing at Siemens, to explore this transformative trend.

Stefanski and Vosmik’s first conversation includes the following:

  • Insights into how Siemens is using 3D technology to revolutionize production and what their recent multi-billion-dollar investment means for the industry
  • A ringside view of Steve’s unique journey from liberal art major considering law school to running a major additive manufacturing operation
  • Discussion on the challenges and opportunities of integrating 3D manufacturing processes into legacy systems

Steve Vosmik is a man of exceptional determination and creativity. His non-traditional path to additive manufacturing offers a unique perspective on the industry. Despite not having an engineering background, Steve has spearheaded Siemens’ efforts in additive manufacturing. His wealth of experience and keen insights into this disruptive technology make him a voice to heed in advanced manufacturing.
