The conference, themed Momentum for Growth, opened with an event in which seven start-up companies, among them nebumind, pitched their ideas to industry executives looking to support innovation. Ideas ranged from the company using AM to produce drives for electric vehicles to one aiming to make AM more scalable using an end-to-end high throughput process to one offering an automated surgical planning software to surgeons. nebumind pitched its digital twin software using data in ways that have achieved time savings of up to 80% in AM.
