With the support of the Initiative Mittelstand, Huber Verlag für Neue Medien GmbH, as well as numerous media partners, the „INDUSTRY PRIZE 2018“chose its winners. The competition recognizes the most innovative industrial products and solutions for the current challenges faced in 14 different categories.
Under the motto "Integrated Industry", an independent panel of experts consisting of professors, scientists, industry experts and journalists chose the “BEST OF” the best. What counts is the progress (novelty, product maturity and future orientation) as well as the economic, social, ecological and technological benefits of the submitted solutions.
Apium received this special award for the category „Research and Development“ in recognition of "Apium P220 Series" 3D printers. With this high-end solution, we provide research groups, institutes, universities and schools in the emerging field of additive manufacturing (AM) with a unique tool for processing high performance polymers and composites. Already more than 25 universities and research institutes worldwide use the manufacturing potential of our advanced 3D printer to stay one-step ahead of the competition.
Apium P220 Series machines are equipped with high-quality closed-loop drive system and offer tailored solution for your choice of material and part geometry. This series of Apium 3D printers offer the unique ability to control the degree of crystallinity in parts 3D printed from semi-crystalline polymeric materials by regulating the melt to solid state transformation rate thus offering research and development groups a unique leverage on science and engineering at the manufacturing level.
"This special award fills us with pride and drives our ambition to continuously improve our research and development products as well as services and to make a significant contribution at positioning an innovative future", said Tony Tran-Mai, CEO of Apium Additive Technologies GmbH
