ACAM is part of the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen Campus, which specialises in R&D. It also has a long-running association with the Fraunhofer Institutes for Laser and Production Technology.  Johannes Schleifenbaum, ACAM’s managing partner, explained: “Aachen is the cradle of laser-based metal AM technologies – we won’t forget this heritage – but a large part of the AM future will be decided in the digital world.” He added: “We will support this with the formation of a ‘digital additive enterprise’, where customers can holistically experience the disruptive power of AM.”

To this end, Link3D will put together a showroom to demonstrate its AMES & Additive Workflow Software in real time. Shane Fox, CEO of Link3D, commented: “It’s an honor to be collaborating with and organization like ACAM and Fraunhofer as they have an extensive knowledge and experience around additive manufacturing. We believe this collaboration will introduce new technologies that the industry has never seen.”

Link3D was founded in 2016 and is headquartered NYC. You can find further information on its software at
