3D Printing for Wind

Cost reduction is driving development in the wind turbine industry. 3D printing can yield major savings opportunities for Danish subcontractors, but implementing 3D printing technology in their production processes is challenging for these businesses. This project helps small- and medium-sized businesses to incorporate 3D printing as a new technology in their business models and product portfolios targeting the wind industry.
