2018 – what a year!

We had set ourselves a lot of goals – and achieved a lot! Mobility goes Additive has picked up speed in its second year!

  • We did it! – MgA has a home! Just in time for the Annual Meeting 2018 we opened our office in the Marienpark Berlin!
  • The third and biggest Annual Meeting 2018 took place on 26.09.2018 – we remember this day very succinctly and hope we could inspire you for our network. Thank you for all your contributions, a danced night – it’s been great to have you here!
  • No way too far! Through approx. 50 presentations and keynotes at home and abroad as well as user-specific events, we were able to successfully introduce the industrial AM to new user groups, e.g. in Shanghai, St. Louis, IN(3D)USTRY Barcelona, formnext, Singapore, Forum Deutscher Mittelstand, at the EU Commission.
  • Our working groups have developed excellently and present concrete results – here are the latest highlights:
    • “Education”: Petition with tangible to-do’s for the training of young people compiled,
    • With its focus groups “Materials” has defined the first key areas of work  and thus lays the foundations for industrial materials in AM,
    • “RAILiability”: Kick-off workshop at fromnext to address the special requirements of the railways as a closed working groups.

Much has been achieved, but it still lies ahead a lot of us to bring additive manufacturing to industrial maturity.

In 2019, we will focus even more on users, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, and our working groups, as well as on the targeted Europe-wide orientation – more on this in our January Newsletter! The office will close from 24.12.2018 to 04.01.2019 to take a deep breather for what is ahead in the new year.

We wish you, your colleagues and your families a wonderful celebration, magical holidays and a good start into the new year!

Warm greetings,
Your team from Mobility goes Additive e.V.

13.03.2019 – Women in AM

Following the very successful first AM Ladies Lunch in 2018, Mobility goes Additive e.V. in cooperation with IPM AG invites to a meeting of female specialists and executives – to the European Summit for Women in AM.
The aim is to support the networking of women in specialist and management positions in the additive world, to inflame more women for the topic and thus to open up new potential for the future technology of additive manufacturing.

18.-19.02.2019 – Rethink! SMPS Europe 2019

The Rethink! SPMS Europe 2019 in Berlin is the leading strategic Smart Manufacturing summit for production executives and plant managers to interactively discuss the future of smart factories, advanced production strategies, factory automation, organisational change, data management, predictive maintainance, robotics, cost reduction, lean & operational excellence, Industry 4.0 and Workforce 4.0., lecture by Stefanie Brickwede.

29.-31.01.2019 – ISAM 2019

16.10. – 18.10.2018 – IN(3D)USTRY  in Barcelona

Our network supports the third edition of the largest trade fair for additive manufacturing in the Mediterranean region as a partner. Our members receive special conditions for this. If you are interested, please contact Stefanie Brickwede.

IN(3D)USTRY in Barcelona Explore the infinite possibilities of the Additive & Advanced Manufacturing

Robotics, moulds and dies, plastics and new materials will be on display together with 3D printing at the third IN(3D)USTRY fair, titled From Needs to Solutions. The purpose of the event is to promote the use of this technology throughout the industry and, for this reason, this year’s event incorporates new sectors as potential future users of additive manufacturing. Organized by Fira de Barcelona, IN(3D)USTRY will be held from 16 to 18 October in Hall 8 at the Montjuïc venue. The third IN(3D)USTRY fair, titled From Needs to Solutions, extends its influence over the industrial ecosystem by increasing the number of sectors attending. In this regard, the event will feature five thematic areas (advanced manufacturing, moulds and dies, new materials, plastics and 3D printing), based upon which the content of the event will be developed. Thus, within a single space, the event will include several previously absent industries which could potentially employ 3D printing. The advanced manufacturing area will incorporate the field of robotics applied to the industrial sector. The moulds and dies area will explore how 3D printing can contribute to reducing costs in this sub-sector. And the new materials area will address the huge possibilities opening up with the use of innovative plastic and metallic components. The event will be structured around the IN(3D)USTRY Arena, a large area for innovation containing a stage where several representatives of companies which are already applying 3D printing to their production processes will explain their experiences to the visitors. These will be companies in sectors such as aeronautics, health, industry, cars and retail. There will also be an exhibition area displaying numerous examples of parts manufactured by means of this innovative technology, as well as the presence of manufacturers showcasing their latest innovations in the field of cutting-edge printers. Miquel Serrano, the event’s director, declares that “the incorporation of new sectors into this year’s fair will enable us to expand the spectrum of additive manufacturing and view the enormous possibilities offered by this technology in many industrial sectors. By grouping together all the production techniques which complement additive manufacturing we will display the entire production and value chain.” According to Serrano, “three years after its launch, IN(3D)USTRY is now the leading fair in Spain and this year, its third, it will also enable us to establish ourselves as the primary benchmark in Southern Europe.” Barcelona Industry Week IN(3D)USTRY, From Needs to Solutions, forms part of Barcelona Industry Week, which also encompasses the IoT Solutions World Congress, the world’s leading event in the Internet of Things industry, and Healthio, specializing in health and sanitary care technologies. The three events, which share synergies and provide a platform for trade and knowledge in several industrial sectors, will be held from 16 to 18 October at Fira de Barcelona.
