Das Center for Digital Fabrication ist ein Kompetenzentrum am Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftsinformatik und Systementwicklung der Universität Würzburg. Wir beschäftigen uns mit der Technologie additiver Fertigungsverfahren – auch umgangssprachlich bekannt als „3D-Druck“ – und deren ökonomischen Potenzialen. Das CEDIFA steht als Ansprechpartner für Unternehmen unterschiedlichster Branchen zur Verfügung, die sich für den Einsatz additiver Fertigungstechnologie interessieren. Setzen Sie sich bereits heute mit den Potenzialen dieser Technologien auseinander. Additive Fertigung bietet kein „Plug & Play“ – umso wichtiger ist es, die notwendige Lernkurve zu berücksichtigen und frühzeitig aktiv zu werden. Im Vordergrund müssen jedoch stets Kunde und das positive Kosten/Nutzen-Verhältnis stehen. Gehen Sie stets von der Frage aus, wo bislang unadressierte Kundenbedarfe bestehen und wo die Vorteile der additiven Fertigung gezielt einen Nutzen stiften können. Eine Zusammenarbeit mit dem CEDIFA ist u.a. in folgenden Bereichen möglich: Bilaterale oder konsortiale Beratungs- und F&E-Projekte Workshops, Seminare und Tagungen Betreuung von Bachelor- und Masterarbeiten sowie Dissertationen
The 3D Printing Association is an international B2B trade association aims to advance additive manufacturing in Europe.
