Adopting Additive Manufacturing in Local Supply Chains.

Ben Cheetham By Ben Cheetham

3D Printing has had a major impact on global supply chains, with the technology allowing manufacturers to print small runs of products from a wide variety of materials. This type of manufacturing requires less physical stock, creates less waste and doesn’t require mass shipping – which is much better for the environment.

While we have begun to take advantage of these benefits – and many others – we know we can do more to truly harness the full potential of 3D printing and further embrace localised manufacturing.

To find out how this can be achieved, I spoke to Gregor Reischle who's the Global Head of Industrial Additive Manufacturing and Program Manager Supply Chain Intelligence at TÜV SÜD – a company that’s work hard to build trust in localised manufacturing with its comprehensive portfolio of testing, certification, auditing and advisory services.
