As part of the summer round of the startup competition Digital Innovations, the jury of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) awarded 3D Spark with a startup prize of 7,000 euros as well as individual coaching. The official award ceremony took place on August 29 in Berlin.

Delivery bottlenecks for components cause billions of euros in damage every year. Hamburg-based startup 3D Spark enables companies to make transparent decisions on selecting the cheapest, fastest, most technically suitable and most sustainable manufacturing process for each of their components, currently focusing on industrial 3D printing.

"Millions of industrial employees worldwide can make smarter decisions with the help of the 3D Spark platform, because they get the impact of different production alternatives transparently processed. This enables them to make a real contribution to more sustainable, crisis-resilient and efficient production. We are very pleased that BMWK is convinced of this benefit and would like to express our sincere thanks for the foundation award."
Ruben Meuth, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of 3D Spark

Alstom, a global leader in smart and sustainable mobility solutions, is an early adopter of 3D Spark software, which has enabled its 3D printing experts to identify and implement validated savings of more than 1.8 million euros in costs and more than 20,000 days in delivery time with 3D-printed fixtures, spare parts and volume applications.

ZF Friedrichshafen AG is the world's third-largest automotive supplier, with approximately 155,000 employees and sales of approximately 40 billion euros, and is one of the leading companies in the field of driveline and chassis technology. The AG is using the 3D Spark platform to identify commercial applications for ten different 3D printing processes and plans to phase in its use across the group within the next three months. MetShape, a manufacturing services provider, is also already using 3D Spark to cut down on repetitive and non-value-added activities in sales.
