A laser beam that melts metal powder at exactly the right point - just one example of 3D printing in the industry. Components are created from metal and alloys layer by layer - exactly as shown on the computer blueprint. Corporate Technology in Berlin is currently focusing on this laser sintering process. It is already in use at Energy in Finspong in Sweden for repairing gas turbine burners - a possible revolution in the service sector. And a team in Munich-Perlach is using 3D printers to plan new manufacturing facilities as intuitively as possible.
