Industrial 3D printing processes at a wide range of scales have become an integral part of design and production, as have other additive processes. As product cycles become shorter, established supply chains are challenged and sustainability plays an ever greater role, the demand for ever more complex and customised parts increases. In other words: industrial production is becoming more demanding. The place to go to find out about the latest developments and make contacts is “Formnext”, which takes place from 7 to 10 November at Messe Frankfurt for designers and interested parties from all sectors.
As a “hub for additive manufacturing”, according to the announcement, Formnext presents itself as an “international meeting point for experts in industrial 3D printing and production professionals from a wide range of application industries”. More than 800 exhibitors expected more than 30,000 visitors interested in the next generation of intelligent industrial production. In addition to additive production systems, technologies along the entire process chain will be presented. Thus, in addition to innovative 3D printers for industrial use, the materials suitable for their application, automation solutions, software supporting the design, planning or production process as well as technologies for post-processing or quality control are also represented. Other key topics at the trade fair are solutions for component processing and surface treatment, for measurement technology as well as training and further education.
