Application Center for Additive Manufacturing
Sustainability improves the quality of our lives, protects our eco-system and preserves natural resources for future generations. From a corporate point of view, sustainability is associated with an organization’s holistic approach, considering everything ranging from manufacturing to logistics to customer service.
Together with the industry and academia, RISE are establishing the Application Center for Additive Manufacturing to support our customers and society as such in the transition to embrace this sustainable manufacturing technology. When additive manufacturing was introduced in the 1980s, it was hailed as the start of the “Third Industrial Revolution” and over the last decades impressive technological steps have been made, going from prototyping to full-scale production.
The Application Center for Additive Manufacturing will create a platform for industrial partners to collaborate with academia and institutes to realize the impossible and boost the adoption of the technology in Sweden. By collaborating with partners along the entire additive manufacturing eco-system, we aim to support the development and transition to sustainable industry.
Additive manufacturing and sustainability go together
We will enable access to various additive manufacturing technologies as well as testing and evaluation to ensure the right path for each company and product. That means that we will provide”test-before-invest” capabilities, but also information on how to create a sustainable business model for additive manufacturing. As part of our culture, we value openness and sharing knowledge between our partners. This is why you, as a partner, will have a great opportunity to learn from the leading industrial corporations of how they are benefiting from sustainable manufacturing asa way to reduce their CO2-footprint and also strengthen their competitiveness.
Our first partners have already signed up. Now we are looking forward to making a difference. Do you want to become a partner and join the journey of making a difference? Contact us to get more information about your opportunities to join.
