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.
