Episode 9: 3D Printing for Railroads with Stefanie Brickwede
It’s hard to imagine an application for 3D printing that’s more complex or heavier-duty than keeping a railroad running, but Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s railroad operator and a global logistics player, is doing just that.
In episode 9 of the Digital Factory Podcast, we speak with Stefanie Brickwede, who runs the additive manufacturing program at Deutsche Bahn and founded Mobility Goes Additive. We discuss the company’s applications for 3D printing, how she’s approached cultural change around additive manufacturing within the organization, and what’s next for 3D printing in the rail, automotive, and air transport industries.
(Stefanie Brickwede is a keynote speaker at The Digital Factory Conference in Munich on May 14.
