A new UK Digital Manufacturing Centre could be pivotal for Global 3D printing

These projects are under development at a unique point in time, when the first Digital Manufacturing Centre of its kind has just opened here in the UK.  As part of the Silverstone Technology Cluster at Silverstone Park, Towcester, the aim of the centre is to create a hub with new technology and innovation for the 3D printing / Additive Manufacturing sector with “space, aerospace, defence, motorsport, automotive, defence, industrial, marine and medical sectors” at the very heart of their research and development. From this centre it is hoped that the UK will be able to undertake research and develop new products which can be utilised across a variety of sectors in the future.
