Materialise Mindware, an advisory service that aims to overcome business challenges on the use of 3D Printing

In the post Covid-19 world that we have to face, companies will rethink their business model in order to ramp up their production. Depending on the situation in which they are (whether or not they have been impacted negatively or positively by the Covid-19 pandemic), they might have to answer several questions.

These reasons, but not only, are the raison d’être of Materialise Mindware, an advisory service that aims to give strategic and tailor-made insights on the use of 3D printing to address business challenges. 

Additive Manufacturing has proven to be a viable alternative to sustainable supply chains.  B decreasing the costs associated with operational inefficiency, the technology allows for a decentralization of manufacturing and production on-demand. The current pandemic has been a perfect illustration of this situation.

However, to envision the adoption of this technology in the long-run, business executives have to be educated. More than ever, today it becomes crucial to overcome financial pressures while maintaining a competitive edge.

According to a survey that Materialise conducted last year, nearly 50% of manufacturers expect the use of 3D printing to double in the next 5 years, but 41% see the lack of expertise as a major hurdle. 

Mindware aims to reverse this current trend. Materialise new business service comprises a dedicated team of business strategists backed by a network of experts throughout the 2000-employee company. 

“Clients receive customized insights from specialists in disciplines ranging from R&D, to design and engineering, to process engineering, as well as specialists dedicated to verticals such as the medical and aerospace industries. Mindware can help companies with exploring or developing applications for 3D printing as well as defining strategy, qualify manufacturing processes”, said the Belgian company.

It’s been three decades that the 3D printing giant is working on how to make 3D printing efficient, reliable, meaningful, and scalable. This is the right time to say how.
