In association with the Early-Access-Program, it has been announced that leading provider of systems for additive manufacturing, SLM Solutions Group, will become a partner of SAP. SLM will, as such, use the beta version of the application SAP Distributed Manufacturing and will then provide SAP with the feedback.
The mentioned program is part of a co-operation between SAP and the logistics enterprise UPS and is intended to strengthen 3D printing in the industrial manufacturing sector.
Henner Schöneborn, member of the SLM Solutions Group board, explains: "We are happy to support the further development of the software SAP Distributed Warehouse. SAP has the same goals as SLM Solutions – the further strengthening of 3D printing in industrial manufacturing."
Uwe Bögershausen, member of the SLM's board, elaborates: "Industrial co-operation is an important part of the enterprise strategies of SLM Solutions Group. Optimisation of the interfaces and the software deployed in the industrial manufacturing process is highly advantageous for customers because they can now integrate SLM systems smoothly into their manufacturing processes and thus produce complex parts and components of the highest quality. This further enhances SLM Solutions' development into a comprehensive solutions provider for additive manufacturing and will allow SLM Solutions to grow faster than the market.”
