3D Spark saves time and money through process automation

3D Spark is a specialist in the automation of processes relating to the procurement and production of components. To do this, the startup uses artificial intelligence programmed to find the cheapest, fastest and most sustainable solution. The software takes care of much of the bidding process and supports decision-making with the help of an integrated manufacturability check and cost calculation. As the company name implies, industrial 3D printing is always a viable option here.

Founded in 2021, the startup, which has received multiple awards and support, has already won over numerous well-known customers from the mobility and manufacturing industries. These include Deutsche Bahn, the rail technology company Alstom and the technology group ZF Friedrichshafen. Hamburg's popular tourist attraction Miniatur Wunderland has also already worked with 3D Spark.

"The fresh funding will enable us to accelerate the development of our innovative platform and deliver on our claim of 'The best manufacturing process for every component', while ensuring long-term planning security for our industrial partners and customers."
Ruben Meuth, Co-Founder and CEO of 3D Spark
