One of the largest investments is the purchase of a 3D printer with which can be printed and milled in large format, namely 1.5m x 2.0m x 1m. This one printer can be used, among other things, for formwork and inserts for cut-outs in concrete, to be printed in forms that use current techniques difficult or not feasible.
It can also be used for testing certain prototypes. Also for making use parts that with the classic manufacturing techniques are difficult or impossible to manufacture, this printer can are used.
The 3D printing technique also makes it possible to lighten certain objects lighter because it is only possible to print material in those places that are for the strength of the element.
The Willy Naessens Group will also make this 3D printer available to educational institutions and research centers.
