02.11.2017Companies and Organisations

Bionic Production will move to a new location at the former Leuphana Campus Volgershall in Lüneburg early 2018.

The company already presented its plans for "Bionic Smart Factory" (BSF), a new manufacturing concept for complex 3D-printing, at the end of September. The major purpose of BSF is the economical production and design of components inspired by nature.

Bionic Smart Factory is a highly efficient production site for digital production and manufacturing, equipped with 3D printers for various materials and systems for post production steps. At its final stage of expansion the BSF will have around 20 3D-printers at its site in Lüneburg. The facility will not only be a production site, integrating additive manufacturing into the entire development, manufacturing and logistics chains, it will also be the base for innovative research and development projects, which will be conducted jointly with Laser Zentrum Nord. 

Designed as a Campus, BSF offers future engineers the opportunity to work on and research innovative concepts jointly with developers and researchers. Being also a research center Bionic Smart Factory is open to cooperations. Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, being the first of many renowned organizations, has already confirmed their participation in the project. The 3D-Campus also welcomes innovative start-ups that focus on 3D-printing and the development of the technology, to establish their offices at the BSF.

By offering new professional perspectives to highly qualified engineers in the Lüneburg region, this so far first non-university research facility will strengthen the location and foster the economical development of the region. Initially, about 30 staff members will start working at the 3D-Campus as of the beginning of next year. For the future the company plans an extension of the facility to up to 100 employees.
