The various innovative processes are on the agenda of large corporations, SMEs, and research institutes from almost all manufacturing industries. There is particular potential for development in the fields of aerospace, mobility and automotive, tool and mold making, as well as medical and dental technology, which are among the strengths of the capital region. In recent years, Berlin-Brandenburg has become an important location for 3D printing technology developers, users, and service providers. For example, the medical technology company Otto Bock produces individual and custom-fit prostheses and orthoses using additive manufacturing. Siemens uses the technology for complex metallic components of gas turbines and Deutsche Bahn uses it to print spare parts for trains and infrastructure. Researchers at the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) have succeeded in developing 3D printers based on powder-based additive manufacturing in weightlessness for use in space travel. »Formlabs is a young, innovative company that produces userfriendly and affordable 3D printing systems. These systems are used worldwide in the mechanical engineering & manufacturing industries, as well as in dentistry and education & research. Our headquarters are located in Boston, USA and our EMEA office in Berlin has been growing rapidly since 2015 - not least because of the high availability of young international talent, the excellent start-up ecosystem and the city‘s strong 3D printing community. « Stefan Holländer Managing Director EMEA Formlabs GmbH »3YOURMIND was founded in 2014 as a spin-off of the Technische Universität Berlin and above all benefited from Berlin’s excellent startup ecosystem, the good funding instruments, and the high degree of availability of young talent. The strong 3D printing community in the city helped us with our rapid international breakthrough and makes Berlin the most important location for 3D printing in Germany.« Stephan Kühr Founder, CEO 3YOURMIND GmbH Complete value chain Companies and scientific institutions in Berlin today represent the entire value chain of additive manufacturing. As an important interface between the digital economy and manufacturing industry, the sector also benefits greatly from the dynamic Berlin startup scene. In addition to hardware development, startups from Berlin also offer innovative solutions along the data-driven value-added process of 3D printing. CellCore develops component optimization software based on bionic principles to improve lightweight structures. Trinckle offers cloudbased software that enables the customization of 3D-printable products. Botspot is one of the leading international specialists for professional 3D scanning. Small and large-format printers for professional and industrial applications have been conquering the international market for several years. Various processes are used, from stereolithography and laser sintering as with the printers from Formlabs to fused filament fabrication/ fused deposition modeling (FDM) from companies such as BigRep and F&B rapidproduction, to Gefertec’s innovative 3D metal print process

In addition, Berlin is home to a number of experienced companies in materials science, such as, which continues to develop a large number of plastics, and Nanoval, a specialist in the production of high-quality metal powders. In the field of bioprinting, the three-dimensional printing of living cell tissue structures, the new company Cellbricks is a pioneer in tissue engineering applications and the development of artificial organs for transplantation medicine. Excellent science Berlin’s outstanding scientific landscape makes important contributions to technology development. Among others, its primary focuses are in digital 3D modeling at the Technische Universität of Berlin, printable ceramics, biomaterials, and quality control at the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), printed electronics at the Fraunhofer IPK and the Beuth University of Applied Sciences. The integration of additive manufacturing in the context of Industry 4.0 and the digital factory is being advanced by the Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin. »Founded in 2016, MGA has rapidly developed into Europe‘s largest 3D printing network. From Berlin, we manage the activities and working groups for over 120 member companies. Our goal is to inspire lasting enthusiasm for industrial 3D printing and together remove the obstacles to its implementation.« Stefanie Brickwede CEO Mobility goes Additive e. V. »With its variety of polymers, ceramics, and metals, additive manufacturing is highly relevant for many of BAM’s areas of research. In Berlin, their applicability for automotive, aerospace and medical technology, among others, is being researched. Our global cooperation and research projects often result in innovations and patents whose industrial applicability is the stated goal of BAM.« Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Rethmeier Head of Division Welding Technology Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) Global networks Today, the German capital is an internationally renowned location for innovation, new technologies and additive manufacturing. For this reason, the 3D printing network MGA (Mobility/Medical goes Additive) was established here recently. Another milestone for 3D printing is the establishment of a center for additive manufacturing in the south of Berlin. The Industrial Additive Manufacturing Hub Berlin (IAM Hub) is a place to go for young 3D printing companies and scientific institutes. Innovative ideas are born and groundbreaking 3D printing projects are implemented on the rapidly developing campus, and there is also an attractive offer of co-working space. In addition, the nationwide AM association Verband 3DDruck and other networks operate from Berlin and represent a strong community on various aspects of technology, law and standardization.
