Ulsan Metropolitan City, South Korea’s industrial center, has announced a collaboration with Materialise to drive business growth for the local manufacturing industry by leveraging the transformational power of additive manufacturing. As part of this agreement, Materialise will engage in co-creation campaigns with local manufacturing companies to identify opportunities to optimize the manufacturing process.
Ulsan Metropolitan City, South Korea’s seventh-largest metropolis, is at the heart of this manufacturing industry, hosting some of the world’s largest automobile assembly plants, shipyards and oil refineries.
As part of the agreement, Materialise will help manufacturing companies in Ulsan Metropolitan City to develop applications that generate business growth by enabling significant manufacturing process optimizations. This will happen through intensive co-creation projects, where Materialise will combine its 3D printing expertise with the manufacturing company’s industry and product knowledge and manufacturing experience. The results of these co-creation projects will serve as a blueprint for other manufacturing companies to adopt Additive Manufacturing as a complementary manufacturing technology.
