3D printing will distrupt manufacturing
The logistics company has been testing a number of 3D printing techniques and hardware over the last few years.
“[The] trend…recognizes 3D printing as a transformative technology. However, it is not a magic bullet that will render factory mass production and manufacturing obsolete,” said Matthias Heutger, senior vice president, DHL customer solutions & innovation. “Its exciting potential lies more in its capability to simplify the production of highly complex and customizable products and spare parts – and this could bring logistics and manufacturing closer together than ever before.”
