Wikifactory and the Danish AM Hub join forces
Wikifactory – the world’s first social platform and online collaboration system for anyone, anywhere to make real products completely online – has partnered with Danish AM Hub – the world’s leading member organization for corporations production leader in the use of industrial 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing. Together, they will bring a radical transformation to the global manufacturing industry that will allow almost any product imaginable to be produced in a sustainable manner over the next 100 years.
45% of global CO2 emissions are linked to production, and about half of these are linked to the way we process materials – be it aluminum, concrete, metal, titanium , glass and plastic for homes, patio furniture, cars and other products. In the best case scenario (where the use of renewable energy across the world increases dramatically), production emissions are expected to increase by a factor of between two and four by 2050. However, evidence suggests that already 50% of all products made in the world could be 3D. printed. In partnership, Wikifactory and Danish AM Hub can create changes in the value chain and in the end product, while presenting strong competitive advantages for production companies.
Danish AM Hub has connected medium and small businesses across the country in a unified ecosystem, which will provide cutting-edge processes for additive manufacturing to the whole world and create the conditions for more sustainable product development. In partnership, Wikifactory and Dansk AM Hub are paving the way for an agile, robust, cloud-based product development system that enables secure, real-time, and on-the-go collaboration between engineers and designers from reputable companies and l quality guaranteed 3D printing. offices.
Frank Rosengreen, Lorenzen, CEO of Danish AM Hub, comments: “Attracting a global tech company like Wikifactory to move its headquarters to Denmark is a testament to the strength of our global and progressive ecosystem of on-demand manufacturing companies that can not only transform production to make it faster and more efficient, but also more Bringing the supply chain online with a system like Wikifactory and industry-wide adoption of digital production processes through clusters and networks like the Danish AM Hub could be a game-changer for our environment. long-term vision, but as of today we can ensure that all 50 members of the Danish AM Hub can access the Wikifactory platform and we can start designing the sustainable products of the future.
Wikifactory has moved with the Danish AM Hub in Valby, Copenhagen to the iconic capsule factory, and will launch its partnership with a special fast-paced project called “Designing for Additive Manufacturing” (DfAM). The project challenges Danish manufacturing companies to work together to create the most sustainable products of the future across all industry verticals. The first prototypes will be revealed to the world in April 2022.
Wikifactory’s global community of industrial and mechanical engineers, product designers, start-ups and hardware manufacturers have developed more than 5,000 products in various industries including robotics, electric vehicles, drones, l ‘agro-tech, biotech equipment, furniture, Covid supplies and digital manufacturing machines. Wikifactory is where great ideas turn into even better products.
