Also this month we would like to remind you of our Annual Meeting 2019 on September 16-17 in Berlin! Since the last newsletter three new members joined the Mobility network and a new feature, our AM network map, will be introduced on the website. Also, we would like to ask for input for the Lightweight Summit of the Ministers of Economics.
Topics of the month:
+++ 3 new members +++ AM Network Map +++ MgA at Lightweight Construction Summit of Economics Ministers +++ Reports from the working groups +++
We are pleased to welcome three new companies to our network in June!
Simufact engineering GmbH is a software company that develops simulation software for manufacturing processes. Amongst others, there are innovative solutions for build simulation.
With the 24IP Law Group we gain a legal expert who is familiar with concepts for the protection of licensing and the enforcement of IP rights.
Alexander Daniels Global GmbH acts worldwide as a talent scout and specializes as a recruiting agency in additive manufacturing.
The working group Approval in Mobility met on 28 May 2019 at the MgA office. It has scaled up by several new members and will continue to work on approval issues in the railway sector as Approval in Rail.
Following this example, a group with an Automotive focus is to begin its work soon.
On 06 May 2019, the representatives of the European railways from Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Sweden, Switzerland and Austria met in Rome as part of the Mobility working group RAILiability.
The aim of this working group is to jointly develop a common database for printed 3D parts in order to share the requirements and learnings from development, but also to work closely together in material testing, research and development together with industry.
Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding in mid-March 2019, the content is now becoming more concrete: initial component data will be collected and exchanged, additive components will be shown to each other, valuable inspirations for potential components will be exchanged and a first consolidated “need list” will be drawn up.
The next physical meeting will take place in Vienna in August.

AM Network Map
As an added value for our members, we want to portray our network on a digital map, our AM Network Map.
Thanks to all who already filled their profiles after our call-for-action!
[is-login]If you haven’t done so yet or need support, please contact Linus. In order for the map to be launched soon, the go-live is scheduled for 30.06.2019. This is also going to be one of your promo platforms![/is-login]
MgA at the Lightweight Construction Summit of Economics Ministers
Our Managing Director Stefanie Brickwede has been invited as an expert to the Summit of Economics Ministers on 25 June 2019 to push AM and “lightweight construction” in politics. Training needs, financing and a strategy for the AM industry will be addressed.
Do you have applications or studies on this topic that you would like to be placed? [is-login]In particular, we seek (small) 3d printed exhibits from you. Please mail us to showcase.[/is-login]
3D printed block buster “Mister Link” out now in cinemas
On 30.05.2019 the stop motion movie Mister Link will come to German cinemas, for whose production the animation studio LAIKA also used 3D printing. More than 100,000 detailed faces with precisely rendered colour nuances were printed on a Stratasys machine.
