Ultimaker's podcast series to empower 3D printing adoption

Ultimaker, the global leader in desktop 3D printing, today announced the launch of its new podcast series, ‘Talking Additive’. The first season of Talking Additive features guests from Ultimaker’s network of partners, customers, and allies, including decision-makers from leading manufacturing companies, third-party Materials Alliance partners, and Ultimaker.

Talking Additive provides an interactive avenue to explore the impact of adopting additive manufacturing. The podcast, hosted by Matt Griffin, director of Community Development at Ultimaker, aims to uncover new details about the evolving paradigm for the future of manufacturing, engineering, and design through stories and experience from top innovators from around the globe.

Now available, the first three Talking Additive episodes feature;

Matthew Forrester, Additive Manufacturing technical manager, L’Oréal – Ultimaker virtually visits the L’Oréal headquarters in Clichy, France to discuss the three stages of adopting additive manufacturing: Prototyping, Plants, Production.

Danielle Glasbergen-Benning, Application Development specialist, DSM Additive Manufacturing – Glasbergen-Benning explains the process for translating application needs into material solutions, with insights into recent cutting-edge projects made possible by their portfolio of materials available for open platform professional 3D printers.

Paul Heiden, senior vice president of Product Management, Merijn Neeleman, Portfolio Development Manager, and Rohit Jhamb, director Global Research & Analytics, Ultimaker – three experts dive into the role of additive manufacturing in LEAN manufacturing, digitally distributed manufacturing, the future of supply chain and how production processes are already changing for those adopting 3D printing in their product development and fulfillment pipelines.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
