BMW has officially opened its new Additive Manufacturing Campus in Munich.
The new centre brings together the production of prototype and series parts under one roof, along with research into new 3D-printing technologies and associate training for the global rollout of tool-less production. At an investment of €15m, the facility will allow the BMW Group to develop its position as a technology leader in AM. Last year, the BMW Group produced approximately 300,000 parts using this innovative technique. The Additive Manufacturing Campus currently employs up to 80 associates and operates about 50 industrial systems.
