Presentation Transcript

  1. Innovation in Industrial Technologiesfor a Better and Healthier World Wilfried Vancraen CEO & Founder Materialise

  2. 1992 Draft of First EU Project: Phidias • A 2-year-old company active in stereolithography/Additive Manufacturing • 10 people • Biomechanical Engineers • A mission...

  3. The Materialise Mission Statement Through our activities we want to contribute to a better and healthier world. We believe we can do this by innovating product development. Our software knowhow, hardware infrastructure and in-depth knowledge of Additive Manufacturing help us in realizing this mission.

  4. BriteEuramProject: Phidias 1993-1995 Laser photopolymerisationmodels based on medical imaging: Adevelopment which improvesthe accuracy of surgery

  5. From Primitive CT Scan to Accurate Model

  6. Phidias : Accurate, Useful Color Models No Ecosystem, No Success 1995

  7. 1997-1999 : PISA Project SurgiGuides From implant simulation to guided navigation Custom template to transfer planning to surgery

  8. Surgical Planning at New Levels:Preparing the Future

  9. Orthopaedic Guides and Custom Implants

  10. Win Win Win Win Possible ! • For the patient • For the surgeon • For the industry • For the government’s healthcare system Image courtesy of Prof. Liu Yanpu, Dr Bai Shizhu, Prof Zhao Yimin, Fourth Military Medical University, China Prof. Dr. Cornelius, LMU Munich, Germany

  11. AM at Materialise? • 210 000 technical pieces • 120 000 medical pieces • +5000 individual engineered solutions for patients / month

  12. Materialise Personnel 1990 - 2010

  13. But... • Penetration of the technology thanks to US orthopaedic companies • Revenues for those companies a multiplicator of Materialise revenues • Today 80 % of patients taking advantage of this technology in the US... No Ecosystem, No Success

  14. How to Create Better Projects for Europe? • Focus on projects that create big Added Value • Focus on projects that create a Market • Develop/protect strategic market positions

  15. Benin: a Stable African Country A lot of Added Value possible! Parity Purchasing Power: 4% of Belgium’s

  16. Transport is Accident Prone

  17. A Market We are Losing...

  18. A Lack of Transport is Impeding Development

  19. The Project : African Drive ... • Build small buses / vans for Africa • New design, adapted to circumstances: • Maintainable in Africa • Adapted to road conditions • Driving optimal at 50 km/h max at 90 km/h, low consumption • Transport approx 12 people economically • Sold with microfinancing to private entrepeneurs • With tracking system for taxation, control, data gathering Create a Mobility Ecosystem, With European Innovation

  20. Economic Viability Required • Current transport cost investigation • Fair wage for drivers • Fair wage for maintenance • Payment of taxes to governement • Insurance cost • Microfinancing

  21. For Africa or for Europe ??? • Create a market for economic growth • Build experience in ‘Cost Down Innovation’ (ship Ikea-like packaged cars) • Prevent the environmental problems that we experienced and solved from appearing oversized in Africa • Solve technical challenges with spin-off opportunities (e.g. maintenance free air filter) • Create second lives for multiple products we produce (e.g. tires)

  22. Necessary requirement: a good ecosystem Big competitive advantage: a good ecosystem

  23. Back to the roots A project for : • Industry: build vans that provide mobility in difficult road conditions, but economical and environment friendly • Industry

  24. Back to the roots A project for : • Financial Sector: provide finance where it is required most • Industry • Finance

  25. Back to the roots A project for : • Insurance Sector: provide security where people, finance providers and industry need it • Industry • Finance • Insurance

  26. Back to the roots A project for : • Accounting Sector: secure open accountability of all parties involved • Industry • Accounting • Finance • Insurance

  27. Back to the roots A project for : • Media Sector: bring constructive information that helps to get this project in a positive drive, in Europe, in Africa... • Industry • Accounting • Finance • Media • Insurance

  28. Back to the roots A project for : • Politics: create the rules to bring the so much required, economical, environmentally friendly mobility to African countries • Politics • Industry • Accounting • Finance • Media • Insurance

  29. Make it Happen for 2020 ? • Who has read ‘Flagship Area’s’ for 2020 ? • Who found it an engaging text that motivates European citizens to run behind the European Flag ? • Who would find ‘African Drive’ a project that can motivate people ? Interested? Talk to us at booth 96 at 13h30

  30. Make it Happen for 2020 ? • Test phase with existing vans • Design phase • Use existing technology but innovate on cost down • Solve technological challenges • Recuperate components • Pre-series in Flanders, Belgium? • Maintenance in Benin • Production in Benin Flagship Project for 2020? Interested? Talk to us at booth 96 at 13h30
