Printing Technology Center

A Printing Technology Center (PTC) is a ‘shared facility’ where companies can get access easily to:

  • 3D metal printing-knowledge
  • Capacity on a industrial metal printer
  • Support in design
  • Support in manufacturing
  • Software packages
  • The PTC network

PTC in Terborg

The PTC in Terborg has been installed in the summer of 2016. Five prominent companies and two knowledge institutions in the region took part. Together knowledge is being gained, especially products are being manufactured to stay ahead in various markets. Industrialisation and serial production are core values which are being worked towards together.

Possible locations for new PTC's

K3D firmly believes these words of wisdom:

Knowledge is power, but sharing knowledge is powerful.

K3D has a focused ambition to have 5 printing facilities up and running by the end of 2019. Besides the Food-tech market other areas that have our attention are, among others:

- High-tech parts and components
- Medical patient specific implants
- Aviation maintenance
- Automotive

For the named markets K3D is looking for partners to start a collaboration.

The best way to show the possibilities of 3D metal printing, is by showing examples in practice!
