This month the first official 3D printing factory in the Netherlands will open. The name of the company is Additive Industries and they will will open their factory in a former Philips building in technical city Eindhoven.
Eight different companies invested 1.8 million euro in this business. Additive Industries will provide 3D printing services for Chip machinery maker ASML and Philips Healthcare. The reason for the startup of Additive Industries is that the investors always have to order their parts from Germany and Belgium. 3D printing makes this unnecessary.
So what will they print out? In the factory their will be two big 3D printers, which can even print metal objects. The startup has said that it’s a perfect alternative for the milling and casting of metal objects.
Additive Industries is scheduled to open on October 24th.
