The AMSYSTEMS Center is a joint innovation center (TNO and TU/e High Tech Systems Center) to develop the next generation additive manufacturing production equipment for smart, personalized and multi-functional products.
Additive manufacturing (AM) concerns methods whereby products are produced layer by layer, such as 3D-printing. The center targets high-tech, free form electronics, 3D printed food and pharma applications with spin-off to other markets that require personalized, customized, on-demand manufacturing.
The AMSYSTEMS Center focuses on development of new multi-material/multi-technology concepts for additive manufacturing and the integration of these technologies in mass-customization production chains, making it an integral part of a 'next generation industry' approach. The center stimulates the co-creation of ecosystems around new AM equipment concepts, organized in shared research innovation programs. Next generation AM equipment challenges are addressed, creating benefit for companies along the value chain.
