2 STATUS OBJECTIVE An independent, non-profit institution
Approved as a technological service institute by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. OBJECTIVE The objective of the Danish Technological Institute is to address the needs of the industrial sector and society as a whole through the development and dissemination of technological innovation.

Knowledge development Develops new knowledge through R&D activities – national as well as international Knowledge application Knowledge application takes place through general technological services, e.g. laboratory tests, testing, calibration and certification Knowledge transfer In interaction with and supplying advisory services to private and public market players, e.g. consultancy, education and operator tasks

4 Number of employees in companies (customers)
THE INSTITUTE COVERS A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED ENTERPRISES IN 2010 82% Delivery of services to 14,895 companies of which 9,449 were Danish. Share of companies, in total 9,449 Share of revenue, in total EUR 37.4 million 43% 38% 19% 12% 6% 0-49 50-199 200+ Number of employees in companies (customers)

5 Additive Manufacturing AM
RPT (Rapid Prototyping Technologies), ALM (Additive layer manufacturing) RM (Rapid manufacturing) AF (Additive fabrication) DDM (Direct digital manufacturing) SFF (Solid freeform fabrication) LM (Layered manufacturing). …. AM is the application of layer manufacturing techniques for the fabrication of functional long-term models or enduse products. The physical inputs into the RP systems are the materials, CAD model and laser. By using different RP technologies, final net shape metallic parts can be fabricated. It is a one-step process in which tooling is eliminated thereby reducing production time and cost.

17 The beauty of Rapid Manufacturing.

18 ”The RM technology has given us a bigger creative designing space, because we are no longer limited by a particular geometric shape.  We do not produce tools, which means that the production process is reduced to a few weeks where it before took between 4 to 6 months. The time factor means that we can now try out our ideas, and it gives us an  enormous amount of freedom” Leif Johannsen, Chief Officer of Acoustics and Technology

20 Sustainable Pumps and the world's electricity consumption
Today pumps account for no less than 10% of the world's electricity consumption. Two third of all pumps use up to 60% too much energy [2]. If every business switched to a high efficiency pump system there could be global savings of 4% of the total electricity consumption- comparable with the residential electricity consumption of 1 billion people
