AddLab, a 3D printing innovation center based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, will reportedly be scaled up for series production. Industrial partners KMWE, NTS-Group, Machinefabriek De Valk say that the center will now be used for series production for applications in equipment and aerospace, and have also changed the name to K3D-AddFab.

K3D-AddFab will also team up with Dutch industrial 3D printing equipment manufacturer Additive Industries, who will also provide process and application development support.

‘For us K3D-AddFab will be the testbed for distributed manufacturing in demanding markets as well as an extra training and demonstration center around the corner from our headquarters,’ said Jan-Cees Santema, sales director Europe of Additive Industries. ‘In a close partnership we will be able to accelerate learning that started when we opened AddLab almost six years ago.’
