The opportunity space of 3D printing for the Maritime Industry

  • SCION DTU (AUDITORIUM) 381 Diplomvej Kongens Lyngby, 2800 Denmark (map)

Are you considering how 3D printing and additive manufacturing might add to or affect your business in terms or product and process development, or how it might change your business model? This is the first, of a series of events, where we look into the opportunity space of 3D printing for the maritime industry. With a mix of technical insights and inspirational presentations we aim at inspiring our participants to follow up on potential business development opportunities within their area of business.

Join us, when we deep dive into the technologies of the fourth industrial revolution - particularly 3D printing and additive manufacturing and explore how, they can affect and help develop tomorrow's maritime industry. We will also investigate how 3D printing and sustainability connects. In all presentations and break out sessions, however, focus will remain at the opportunity space of 3D printing for the Maritime Industry.

This workshop is the first of a series of events about 3D printing in the maritime industry.

Next event is a study trip to Munich on June 6th - 8th: Here we will visit 3D printing manufacturers, become inspired by Airbus APworks and get insights from Port of Rotterdam who has chosen to invest extensively in this technology, but also learn more about the technical aspects of 3D printing incl. materials, sizes and software. Go to for more information.

All events are part of the GSF project 3D printing in the maritime industry and you can participate in one or all events. With this project, we want to lift the general level of knowledge of 3D printing and additive manufacturing within the Blue Denmark. We want to make the participants aware of the development and business opportunities these technologies bring. The Blue Denmark has, traditionally, been heading the development of the maritime industry. It is only natural, that we continue to do so, by constructively pursuing these new technologies.

The project is divided into 3 phases. We start out by bringing the industry up to speed in terms of the technical possibilities, the available 3D printers, the good business case examples and many other areas within 3D printing and additive manufacturing. Then we enter into phase 2, where we focus on the single participant. 3D experts guide us on how these technologies can be explored by the different types of companies and help identify relevant business projects on the subject for phase 3.

Behind this workshop and the project are Alfa Laval, CREATE, DNV GL, EMUC, J. Lauritzen and OSK Shiptech.

This workshop and the project 3D printing in the maritime industry is financed by the Danish Maritime Fund
