Cases with Additive Manufacturing

We supply a wide variety of clients with 3D printing in both metal and plastic, and we continuously gather examples of the development of 3D printed parts that can serve as inspiration for others who have started - or would like to start - working with 3D printing.

For some companies, printing a component or a part is perfectly obvious, and for others - and this is in most cases - it requires an innovation and development process to identify where, how and why it makes sense to 3D print one or more parts.

At the Danish Technological Institute, our customer assignments cover a broad spectrum - from developing parts through pilot production to producing large batches of 3D-printed items, which form part of the company's production chain.

Below you can read more about some of our customer cases.
