During the retreat of the Bavarian cabinet at the conference center of the Bavarian parliament in St. Quirin on the shore of Tegernsee lake, several high-tech companies and research institutions, most of which are based in Bavaria, had an opportunity to present their projects to State Premier Horst Seehofer and the members of his cabinet at the specially set-up "BAVARIA DIGITAL" exhibition.
Of course such a group would not be complete without voxeljet, a company based in Friedberg near Augsburg (Bavaria) and one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial 3D printing systems and operator of service centers for 3D print products. The company showcased its sand and investment casting models, which have already become a fixture in industrial manufacturing and are used particularly in many projects in the automotive and aviation industries. As Sales Director Christian Träger said to Bavarian State Premier Horst Seehofer: "Many of the new digital innovations we are currently seeing would not have been possible without 3D printing." At the end, the experts from industry and politics agreed that industrial 3D printing technology will revolutionize the production processes of entire industries in the coming years.
