Link3D, Boulder, Colorado, USA, has deployed a ‘Digital 3D Inventory’ for PostNord, Stockholm, Sweden, the largest logistics company in the Nordics and a subsidiary of PostNord Strålfor Group. The digital inventory provides communication and logistics solutions to optimise Additive Manufacturing for the medical market.
PostNord’s continued expansion into AM is driving the need for an integrated offering within the medical market.
