M2i and its industrial partners Fokker and MTI (IHC) are supporting the fieldlab initiative.
The port of Rotterdam will be acquiring its own ‘Additive Manufacturing Fieldlab’ with 3D metal printers. RDM Rotterdam will acquire metal printers and a centre for the development of knowledge in the area of metal printing, 3D scanning, 3D design and certification. This Fieldlab will provide port-related companies with a collective location to accelerate developments in this area and to work together on applications for the (maritime) industry. The Fieldlab will be located in the Innovation Dock at RDM Rotterdam, the site of choice for innovation in the Rotterdam port area, where companies, researchers and students work together on shaping the new manufacturing industry.
